This loader loader can handle a range of jobs
FARNHAM-BASED Riko UK has now introduced a three-point-linkage mounted loader which is designed to be used for a wide range of applications in the agricultural, horticultural and forestry industries.
The RN-1 – which can be operated by 35hp+ tractors – is considered to be an alternative to the front end loader and offers the advantage that the loading vehicle is stationary and clutches and tyres do not suffer excessive wear. The unit can be powered either by the pto through its own hydraulic pump system or, if required, directly from a tractors hydraulic supply.
Maximum reach is 4m, rotation angle is 186í and maximum lift is 300kg. hydraulically lowered stabilisers are designed to create safe operation.
A wide range of attachments are available including clamshell buckets and forks, log grapples and hooks. *
