Current Offers


The front loader design ensures optimal parallel lifting; in addition, the divergent shape of the arm greatly improves visibility and provides excellent loading performance. The design of the backhoe is completely new: it features a clean and functional layout, with hydraulic piping and hoses along the boom.

Unique Comfort

The cab has a modern design, a ROPS and FOPS structure and is fully equipped. Its increased internal volume and wide round glass surface offer great comfort to the operator. The backhoe joysticks are mounted on two independently adjustable columns and ensure excellent control. The multifunction joystick for the loader includes the controls for the 4×1 bucket, declutch and speed-up function.

Perfect Versatility

The wide round glass surface presents a highly increased visibility. The bonnet shape and the upper front window make it easy and safe to work with the front loader. When operating the backhoe excavator, the operator can easily open the single frame window and comfortably overlook the surrounding area.
