Loaders have UKlaunch in April

APRIL sees the UKlaunch of a new range of Quicke loaders. Seen at Sima for the first time, the 700 and 900 Series comprise seven models and nine models, respectively.

Both Series are equipped with four rams – two lift and two crowd – the main difference between the two being that the 900 Series has a parallel linkage.

More general changes involve the re-siting of Quickes optional Softdrive system. Deemed on earlier models to impede the vision of the operator, the unit is now fixed to the cross bar behind the attachment bar.

Encased in a metal box, the manufacturer insists it will come to no harm in this seemingly vulnerable position.
