Chillton Agricultural Equipment of Cannock, Staffordshire have introduced a new range of loaders for compact tractors from 15 to 25hp.
Suitable for every type of operation from garden maintenance through the tough life of landscaping and construction to horticultural, equestrian and amenity work MXC1 loaders are available for just about every type of compact tractor and, importantly they can be specified in colours to match the tractor's livery.
Drawing on many years of loader design and manufacturing the C1 is the first loader to feature booms and cross member manufactured from a single piece of steel. The result is a strong, light jib with a modern appearance. The low cross member provides unrivalled visibility and with all hydraulic pipes integrated within the structure of the jib the chances of accidentally damaging the hydraulic circuitry is virtually nil.
A sub frame is permanently attached to the tractor and with this in place C1 loaders may be connected or unhitched from the tractor in seconds. Lift capacity ranges from 390kg at ground level to 350kg at full height and control is through a single multi-axis control lever allowing simultaneous lift or lower with crowd and tip. Loaders are supplied complete with a 1.2 meter wide materials bucket with a heaped capacity of 160 litres. A manure fork of similar width is also available. Lift and reach figures are dependent on tractor type and tyres fitted but generally the maximum height under a level bucket is 1.8m and forward reach from front axle centre to attachment pivot is just short of 1 meter.
Prices of the MX C1 commence at around £2695.00 complete with sub-frame brackets, single lever control and 1.2m bucket.
