The buildings on Marcel Schweizers property in Schönholzerswilen show quite a long part of history with extremely low ceilings in every room. Inside, only very compact machines like the GiANT 4548 TENDO HD can work. It's height measures less than 2 meters, its width is a narrow 1.6 meters. Furthermore, the turning circle is only 1.2 meters.
Despite its compact dimensions the GIANT TENDO is able to lift 1.4 tons and impresses with its lifting height of 4.8 meters. Its hydraulic system is able to deal with challenging attachments. All the same the operating weight is below three tons. The measures and performance of the machine convinced Marcel Schweizer, so he invested in a very well- tended used machine from the rental park of his supplier.
Built for diversity
The TENDO of Marcel Schweizer includes a Euro-8-quick-release. Due to that already existing attachments as bale fork, bucket with holding down clamp or loppers can be used. It's also very easy to exchange tools with the neighbors. The loppers can easily be used. The GIANT offers four hydraulic connections as well as recirculation as standard. The only change which had to be made to use the hydraulic valve was the installation of a power supply line at the telescope arm. The TENDO is also equipped with a proportionally controlled joystick, which enables gentle and precise movements and makes it easier to move in various environments.
An easier way to Work
The farm of Marcel Schweizer is based on two levels. This is why a lot of transport of big packs is necessary. Also, the handling of bales onto and down from the high- levelled storage is a common task. A lot of these tasks had to be done before by hand or with the help of a tractor or backhoe loader, which means a lot of restrictions. It is much easier to work with the TENDO in very narrow locations and on uneven grounds. ‘Which is why Marcel Schweizer can’t live without his GIANT!’
