The latest range also has operating capacities from 435kg to more than 1160kg.

Coming in at a narrow 1049mm for the 140 model, the compact loaders articulated steering allows for turns up to 45 degrees.

A heavy duty oscillating joint allows 45 degree turning angles to the left and right, as well as 10 degrees of oscillation in both directions.

Powered by a diesel Yanmar engine, the loaders’ horsepower ranges from 23hp on the 140 through to 47hp on the 540 model.

A parallel type linkage on the 140 and 340 models, and a Z bar-type linkage on the design on the 540 provides high bucket breakout forces.

This linkage design allows for mechanical self leveling in action in up and down directions.
