Upon the occasion of its 10th year anniversary of its loader range, PICHON renews its series of articulated loaders. From now onwards, 16 models from 26 to 60 HP, with lifting height reaching 4.5 meters will be proposed. Strength, power, and easy maneuver are the major assets of this new range conceived for working in farms, public works and in stud farms.
The most striking characteristic of the new loader series is of course the design. It is not only elegant on the outside but also specially conceived to integrate the 4 types of user-protection frames: ROPS, FOPS, canopy and cabin. The mudguards of the series are designed with a curve integrated to match the machine's body so as to keep the loader streamlined.
The counterweights behind, which are integrated to the chassis help to increase the loading capacities. Special attention has also been made to facilitate maintenance, to access to the engine's compartment, to different points of control and greasing through an opening at the side and rear of the loader.
The cabin's interior and accessibility to the driver's seat have been improved for the comfort of the user. The driver has a better visibility thanks to a rear hood (dome-shape) made of resin. As for the canopy and cabin version, the front part of the roof has a glass panel to allow users to follow the tool from the ground to the height of its working range.
Finally on the telescopic version, the driver's comfort has also been optimized with the help of an integrated joystick to the seat's armrest and anti-tipping system conforming to current regulations.
All models are equipped with highly reliable Caterpillar engine blocks of 1.1L to 2.2L cylinders.
The 16 models of the range can of course be personalized as of all other Pichon products to respond to the most demanding users.
