Claas Scorpion telehandler

Amid the hype of the Torion wheeled loader, Claas has also revealed an all-new range of Scorpion telehandlers.

 

Built as a joint venture agreement with German construction equipment giant Liebherr, there will be eight models available in two specifications.

 

Importantly, the range puts Claas into two weight categories that were previously missing – the 7m, 4.1-tonne 741 and the 10m, 3.3-tonne 1033 with its two-stage telescopic boom.

 

The latter is aimed at the straw sector.

 

Deutz power is available with 136hp and 156hp, and a hydrostatic transmission offers 30k and 40k travel speeds.

 

Key changes across the range include better visibility to the rear, as a result of a low boom pivot point, an electronic handbrake and oil –immersed inboard disc brakes.

SMT GB Volvo L70H loader

Volvo construction equipment importer and first time Lamma exhibitor SMT GB revealed an ag-specification wheeled loader, based on its L70H.

 

The 14-tonne loader delivers 173hp at a leisurely 1,600rpm from its D6J Volvo engine.

 

It drives all four wheels through a four-speed powershift transmission, offering a 46kph travel speed.

 

Michelin Bib X 750/65 R26 tyres are not the only nod to ag-specification.

 

The machine gains additional LED worklights, a forward-facing camera to enhance the view over a high-capacity bucket, and the rear cast counterweight will be substituted for an all-steel construction able to accommodate a double-acting trailer hitch.

 

As shown, the £129,000 wheeled loader is also equipped with the firm’s Comfort Drive Control for joystick steering and 3rd and 4th line auxiliary services for attachments.

Manitou MLA-T loader

Manitou re-enters the pivot steer loader market with its MLA-T which has a 3.3 tonne lift capacity and uses a central telescopic boom to lift to 5.2m.

 

Powered by a 145hp Deutz engine, the MLA-T has a continuously variable transmission which gives stepless shifting to 40kph, although top speed can be limited for yard work.

 

The large cab with roof window and curved rear glass panels is designed to offer good visibility, and Manitou says the combination of its 2D dual articulation points and oscillating rear axles increases stability.

 

Either Manitou or pin and cone carriages can be supplied, giving compatibility with older attachments.

 

Attention has also been paid to the location of grease points and fuel and hydraulic fluid filling for ease of maintenance.

Hauer front-end loaders

German manufacturer Hauer brought its front-end loaders to Lamma to meet potential distributors.

 

On show was the company’s new XB Bionic range featuring all the parallel guidance and tilt cylinders enclosed within the beam for protection and improved visibility.

 

Designed for tractors from 50 to 280hp, larger models have automatic implement locking with a choice of attachments. The robust design includes a double walled cross beam which also encloses the hydraulic components.

 

Lift capacities are from 1,360 to 2,370kg to maximum height.

Quicke has added a new app service to its Q-companion loader weighing terminal, which offers operators a number of load monitoring functions, including the number of loads made, individual and total load weight and lift force used.

 

Using a mobile app which obtains the data by reading a QR code created on the monitor, operators can input locations, load type, field name and other data to provide a complete record of loading activities.

 

Records can also be accessed from a laptop via the Cloud.

 

Quicke suggests this could provide a useful record of bale numbers and customer data for contractors, or quantify amounts of muck, fertiliser handled without using load cells on a spreader or a weighbridge.
