4 wheels on the Sideloader
Combilift's new 4-wheeled, two directional sideloader, available with 5t and 6t load capacities, was developed for operations that require reliable, robust and fast operation when moving timber across extensive sites and offers considerable benefits over other machines on the market.
Overheating during prolonged operation is a common problem with many sideloaders but Combilift has counteracted any risk of this by incorporating a single Bosch Rexroth variable piston hydrostatic drive motor coupled with a rugged and proven JCB differential axle as used on the JCB 3CX backhoe model. This enables prolonged long distance travel at high speeds and eliminates any concern of overheating. Very low maintenance wet brakes are fitted as standard on the drive and front steering axles.
As always, driver comfort and safety was a priority in the design stages. The new ergonomic cab features a deep suspension seat with joystick control, and a tilting steering column for easy entry and exit. Pneumatic tyres make for a smooth ride across uneven surfaces such as cobbles, and the fully glazed front panel in the cab considerably enhances visibility for the operator. As the engine is situated in a low level compartment underneath the platform excellent visibility when reversing is also ensured.
