New Holland Construction launches seven new skid steer loaders
Better Roads Staff
LAS VEGAS (March 23, 2011) – New Holland Construction today introduced seven skid steer loaders. With the new 200 Series, New Holland maintains the best-in-class forward dump height and reach with the Super Boom® loader vertical lift design – and introduces breakthrough productivity improvements. The new skid steers culminate five years of customer research, design and engineering improvements.
“New Holland skid steers are built around our customers’ needs. Our engineers used input from hundreds of customers to design the new 200 Series line-up,” said Dave December, marketing manager at New Holland Construction. “The New Holland skid steer loaders have been engineered from the ground up. No matter what your line of work, construction, landscaping or agriculture, you’ll work faster, smarter and more profitably with our new skid steers.”
The New Holland L218, L220, L223, L225 and L230 skid steer loaders feature the patented vertical lift Super Boom design, delivering best-in-class forward dump height and reach.
“With our new Super Boom loader arm, New Holland skid steer loaders deliver superior lift and reach,” December said. “Unlike competitive models, they can load material to the center of trucks, finishing jobs faster.” The 53-degree dump angle on the 200 Series skid steer loaders is also best in class. This lets operators empty the bucket faster, increasing cycle times and productivity.
The new self-leveling bucket feature on the five models with the Super Boom design allows attachments to maintain the preset location throughout the lift cycle.
“Customers using pallet forks or other attachments to load materials into confined spaces will appreciate the extra work they’ll be able to complete with the self-leveling feature,” December said.
For long load and carry operations, the optional Glide Ride feature on the five New Holland skid steer loader models with the Super Boom design ensures a smooth ride over the roughest job site.
These five models are rated from 57 hp (42 kW) to 84 hp (63 kW). The L218 has an operating weight of 5,850 lbs (2,660 kg) and a bucket breakout force of 5,435 lbs (24.2 kN). The L230 has an operating weight of 8,300 lbs (3,765 kg) and a bucket breakout force of 8,585 lbs (38.2 kN).
Two new radial lift models introduced
New Holland also introduced two compact models, the L213 and L215. Each features a radial lift design, providing excellent digging performance.
“Unlike other manufacturers, New Holland outfits its smaller units with a full-size cab and all the premium features,” December explained. “This includes air ride seats, heat, air conditioning, Glide Ride, self-leveling bucket and more. Plus, we beefed up our engines with 20 percent more horespower than their L Series predecessors.” A heavy-duty, 1,000 cold cranking amp battery is also standard.
The L213 is rated at 43 hp (31.8 kW), with a rated operating capacity of 1,300 lbs (590 kg) and a bucket breakout force of 4,150 lbs (18.5 kN). The L215 is rated at 49 hp (36.3 kW), with a rated operating capacity of 1,500 lbs (680 kg) and a bucket breakout force of 4,150 lbs (18.5 kN).
Superior cab comfort and visibility
“A comfortable operator is a productive operator,” December said. “Our New Holland 200 Series skid steer loaders provide a superior working environment. Check out the competition.”
