Optional feature “Softstop”:

  • A hook loader of this capacity range is now available with the “soft-stop” feature for the first time. This well-known feature from only heavy-duty hook loaders slows down the bin 5° before it lands onto to base frame. This reduces the stress on the structure of the hook loader and the chassis frame.

  • Equipped as a standard with a mechanically adjustable hook height (36”/54”)
  • Higher performance due to fewer limitations of hook heights
  • User-friendly due to easier connection to the bin.

  • Hook loader operation is activated via the in-cab control—no need for PTO signal.
  • Auto power off the control system if the unit is not used for more than three minutes.
  • The in-cab controller has a magnet to position it to the driver’s liking.
