Tobroco-Giant expands compact wheel loader line
The Giant G3500-series is designed to meet customer demands for a loader with a narrow wheelbase that can lift and transport heavy loads
Developed as a reliable and compact piece of machinery, the Giant G3500 has now debuted in North America. The brand-new articulating loader from Tobroco-Giant offers contractors, farmers, fertilizer companies, rental companies, and government entities the flexibility they need to get the job done.
The Giant G3500-series delivers substantial power and lift capacity on a compact footprint to meet customer demands for an agile loader with narrow wheelbase that can lift and transport heavy loads. The Giant G3500-series loader distinguishes itself by showcasing high tipping loads compared to its own weight. Depending on tire selection, the loader has a width ranging from 53" (134 cm) and 65" (165 cm) and overall height of 90" (228 cm). With this narrow footprint, low or restricted passages are no problem, and the machine's versatility promotes applications for indoor or outdoor utilization.
To achieve performance while ensuring fuel efficient operation, the Giant G3500-series is powered by a Kubota 48.5 kW/66 HP diesel engine. The engine is equipped with a catalytic converter (DOC), soot filter (DPF), and is Final Tier 4 (Stage V) emissions compliant.
Whether transporting large payloads or performing rugged activities, the hydrostatic 4-wheel-drive with automotive control (Bosch Rexroth) and 100% switchable differential lock on both 14-ton axles prevents the machine from losing grip - even on loose soil, snow, etc. A driving speed of 18.5 mp/h (30 km/h) is achieved through a 2-speed gearbox allowing customers to travel safely and efficiently from one site to another or while transporting payloads.
A wide range of attachments transforms the G3500-series into a multi-purpose machine. Fork attachments will transport complete pallets while the G3500 X-TRA retains versatility by being capable of interchanging to sweeper or snow blade attachments to keep the worksite clean and safe. By capitalizing on proper attachment selection, it is possible to utilize the G3500-series in all working conditions year round.
The spacious cab of the new G3500-series was redesigned for more functionality and a new, modern look. Customer demands, including great visibility and efficiency, were met by providing operators a comfortable and safe working environment for all day operation. New features include air conditioning, a fully adjustable steering column, and luxury air suspended seat. All necessary information (oil temperature, regeneration, etc.) can be monitored from a centralized LCD display while operating the integrated joystick controls. The compact loader is standard equipped with a certified ROPS/FOPS safety roof, which can be extended to a full-option cabin.
Easy maintenance and the right back-up
Maintaining the G3500-series is simplified with strategically placed service access points that are easy to reach. Filters, hydraulic systems, and engine components can be freely accessed via the easy-to-open bonnet, tilting cab, or other service panels. This translates into reduced downtime by promoting daily checks and maintenance that can be carried out quickly and in a safe manner.
Searching for the best-performing excavator? Your search ends here. We tested the Volvo EC350E and EC380E against a leading competitor in three different tests: trenching, truck loading and lifting capacity at reach. The results show a 20% difference in cost-per-ton, a 15% difference in tons-per-hour and a 12% difference in both operating costs and lifting capacity.
