With the arrival of the G2200 and G2500 models, TOBROCO-GIANT is introducing six new 2.2 ton articulated loaders and two 2.5 ton machines in one go. The compact wheel loaders are equipped with engines that reduce emissions and fuel consumption. The machines are available with a standard front frame, for excellent loading heights and with an X-TRA frame for heavy work within the construction and earthmoving.
Depending on customer wishes and activities, it is possible to choose between 6 different models. Besides the standard G2200, a G2200 HD and G2200 HD PLUS can be chosen. These three models are also available as an X-TRA model for a higher tipping load.
All models are powered by a 3-cylinder, Kubota, 26 hp engine in combination with a hydrostatic 4-wheel drive with automotive steering. The difference between the models is the use of different axles. For example, the G2200 (X-TRA) is equipped with 6-tonne axles and these provide a pulling force of 12,600 N. The G2200 (X-TRA) HD has the same 6-tonne axles, but with a 2 speed transmission. This results in a higher speed and pulling force (14,300 N). The G2200 (X-TRA) HD+ is the top model of the G2200 series. The articulated loader is not only a Heavy Duty version, but is also equipped with 8 ton axles and a planetary final drive. As a result, power is divided over all wheels in the best possible way for more traction and a gives the machine pulling force of 23,000 N.
The models with a standard frame can reach a height of over 111.2 in. with a tipping load of 3,197 lbs. The X-TRA frame ensures an increased tipping load of 4,528 lbs. and a lifting height of 96.5 inch.
The G2500 (X-TRA) HD operates in a higher class with an service weight of 5,291 lbs. Both articulated loaders are equipped with a 4 cylinder, Kubota, engine with 26 hp. The machines have an hydrostatic 4 wheel drive, 2 gears and 8 ton planetary axles. Together with the limited slip on both axles, this drive ensures that the wheel loader has sufficient traction (18,000 N) and moves smoothly for precise operation.
The compact design of the G2500 makes it possible to work in places with limited space. The limited height of 232 cm also offers the possibility to carry out work indoors. Optionally, the models can be equipped with a ROPS / FOPS, folding safety roof. This reduces the machine height with another 34 cm. The G2500 HD has a lifting height of 116.7 inch and tipping load of 4,519 lbs. The X-TRA model has a lifting height of 98.3 in. and a tipping load of 5,732 lbs.
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. See the results and put an end to your search for the best excavator.
