Construction Plant News Visit V452T X-tra Customer

Construction Plant News have written a fantastic article on the GIANT V452T X-tra HD Loader and it's happy customer, Christiaan Paul; Director of Fresh Approach, Desing & Build.

 

Construction Plant News have written a fantastic article on the GIANT V452T X-tra HD Loader and it's happy customer, Christiaan Paul; Director of Fresh Approach, Desing & Build.

Christiaan uses his loader for numerous tasks thanks to its super narrow design:

"Our Tobroco-Giant machine is a multi-tasker. It can grade, load and move material around the site very quickly and there is a decent range of attachments available. At 1350mm wide its narrow enough to access our typical jobs."

"Just yesterday we moved six tonnes of Type1 and 20 sleepers straight out of the lorry onto a driveway with just two guys and we find we are using the machine most days. We'll be adding a 4-in-1 bucket soon and that will make moving muck away during our extension builds much easier, and allow us to clean up complete piles of earth much faster."

GIANT D337T Loader helps with 7000sqft Housing Project

Trevor May Contractors, based in Kent, are specialists in construction and sports surfaces. They have recently completed a 2-and-a-half-year housing project with help from their TOBROCO-GIANT D337T Loader. The 7000sqft. house is incredible, with floor to ceiling windows looking out across the Kent countryside.

Trevor May is pleased with the high quality and robust design of their GIANT Loader:

“Why I wanted a GIANT machine is to do with the build quality. GIANT machines are made of metal, not plastic or glass fibre therefore they will put up with a few knocks and bangs and continue to perform.” 

The GIANT D337 is part of the 17-loader range GIANT offer. With its narrow width of just 1080mm and high tipping load of 1450kg, Trevor May believes it was the perfect machine to help them with the housing project:

“The GIANT Loaders are very versatile with all the attachments and they can manoeuvre in tight spots with ease. Overall, they are a good all-round machine that packs a punch, performs well and easy to use.”

The all-rounder in daily business; the new GIANT skid steers

Whether it concerns gardening, construction & demolition, farmers, poultry farms, municipalities or anyone who maintains roads and paths: a skid steer loader cleans, sweeps and demolishes!

Nowadays work has to be carried out as efficiently as possible, regardless of the sector, and deadlines are widely represented. The increasing labour shortage in many industries is intensifying this pressure. At the same time, everyone has an obligation to ensure that people have a safe and comfortable workplace.

By applying new innovations and the availability of a large number of attachments, the new skidsteer presents itself as a multifunctional all-rounder that helps to make work easier and more efficient.

New innovations
The frame is largely the same and the line-up of engines is unchanged well. Most of the innovations have been applied to the enclosed mechanics of the machine such as a new valve block providing  extra user-friendliness and the ability to perform tasks precisely. Furthermore, the skid steer loaders are equipped with a larger hydraulic pump for more power and higher yield.

Larger wheel motors provide more push and pull, better driving characteristics and are also low maintenance. In addition, it is now also possible to easily change tyres. Depending on the work, a large number of different tyres can be selected. These can even be changed on location and give the machine a width between 76 (!) And 110 centimetres.

The new operator platform is suspended and easy to fold. This gives the driver more comfort and ensures that the machines are compact to transport. Optionally, the skids can be equipped with a soft brake. With this system, the skidsteer slows gradually after releasing the steering levers.

Many options
In addition to this braking system, various options are available that contribute to the efficient and safe execution of work. For example, by applying a hydraulic quick change. Changing tools can then be done easily and quickly without having to move away from the machine. For working with hydraulically driven tools (rotary mower, sweeper, hydraulic hammer, etc.) the machines can be equipped with a double gear pump and multiple double-acting functions are possible.

For work inside buildings or around animals, the two diesel variants can be equipped with an integrated diesel particulate filter. This filter reduces emissions with more than 90%, which benefits the working climate. In addition, the skids can be equipped with a cyclone filter so that the air filter will pollute less quickly and last longer.

Countless fields of application
This compact powerhouse is not just about lifting sand, concrete or bags of cement on a construction site. The skid steer does its job in all sectors! For gardeners by transporting soil, plants or tiles. At recycling companies, the skid steer keeps the floors under conveyor belts clean. Due to its compact sizes, the skid steer can reach locations where other machines won’t fit.

In case of farmers, riding schools and poultry farms, the machine is suitable for mucking out stables and corridors and for supplying straw, food or hay.

For municipalities, the machine is a valuable tool for maintaining, among others, narrow paths and surfaces. With tools such as a weed brush, sweeper or snow blade, the skid replaces a number of other machines. The smallest GIANT has also proven its worth in construction and demolition. Not only by the removal and transport of various loads, but also for demolition work by the use of a hydraulic hammer. Because of its low weight it is possible to use the machine inside a building to break and demolish.

SALTEX 2017- Tobroco-Giant UK Review

It was our first time exhibiting at Saltex, one of the UKs largest landscaping exhibitions.  We exhibited on stand C131, on show we had the ride-on skid steer. This was hugely popular with fencing contractors and groundskeepers as the compact skid steer can be as narrow as 78cm- perfect for fitting through tight spaces and garden gates!

We also had on show the Groundskeeper Special Edition, D254 HD Telescopic Loader, exclusively for SALTEX! This small yet mighty loader is one-of-a-kind. Built with 25hp Kubota engine, the compact machine can lift up to 950kg whilst being able to transport it on a trailer with a service weight of just 1630kg. The groundskeeper edition is perfect for any tree surgeon, landscaper or groundsman - travel job to job with all your kit in one place thanks to the 5 purpose built-in brackets (it even has a built-in cup holder!!)

It was great to meet so many new customers at SALTEX who loved the TOBROCO-GIANT machines as much as we do! See you all again next year.

Introducing the brand new D337 X-TRA!

Besides the standard GIANT D337, this model will now be available in the X-TRA version as well. The D337T X-TRA has a lower front frame and thus a lower centre of gravity. Resulting in excellence on the attachments and stability of the machine, as well as the biggest advantage of an increased lifting capacity. A D337T X-TRA has a tipping load of 2054 kg in comparison with 1450kg for the standard model.

The new wheel loader has a 33 hp, 3-cylinder Kubota diesel engine and is equipped with a hydraulic pump from Bosch Rexroth for smooth and powerful driving characteristics. The service weight of the machines is 2.150 kg (measured with earth bucket) and the lifting height is 2.45 m. Like all GIANT machines the pendulum joint between the front and back frame is completely free from maintenance.

The D337T X-TRA is driven by hydrostatic four-wheel drive with automotive control and automatic differential lock on both axles. This gives the machine a driving speed of -18 km/h. The D337T X-TRA can be delivered as HD version. The “Heavy Duty” version will be equipped with a bigger hydraulic pump. A great advantage of this option is that the machine will have extra tractive force in its second gear.

To meet with European regulations, the X-TRA model as standard is equipped with a ROPS/FOPS safety roof and safety doors. Also, optional extras include; a safety roof deluxe, foldable safety roof or cabin are available for this model.

The 15,000th GIANT rolls off the production line

TOBROCO-GIANT and its factory in Oisterwijk, the Netherlands, reached a milestone with the 15,000th GIANT rolling off the production line last week! This exciting time was celebrated with a special ceremony where founder and owner Toine Brock handed the keys of the 15,000th machine over to Karel Beel, director of Firma Beel. Firma Beel is one of GIANT’s first dealers and has sold GIANT machines in Belgium since 2002. After years of their dedication and hard work, Firme Beel have become the exclusive importer of GIANT machinery for Belgium since 2011 and for France since 2015.

Strong growth
The first GIANT wheel loader was produced in 2001 and since then the demand for GIANT machines has increased rapidly. Because of this demand and the expansion of the range with telescopic loaders and telehandlers, TOBROCO-GIANT produced the 10,000th machine in 2014. In 2016 the company has recorded a seventh consecutive year of annual sales growth as manufactures of GIANT machinery. This growth was achieved by the introduction of new models such as skid steer loaders and the expansion of its worldwide dealer network. The increased sales have meant a 50% rise in produced machines within three years as last week the 15,000th GIANT rolled off the production line. 

About GIANT
TOBROCO Machines is the manufacturer of GIANT (telescopic) wheel loaders, telehandlers, skid steer loaders and attachments. The company was founded in 1996 and in 2001 it started producing GIANT wheel loaders. TOBROCO Machines offers one of the broadest portfolios in the industry with a total of 36 different models in 40 countries. All machines are designed and built in our modern factory in Oisterwijk. In addition, TOBROCO Machines started in 2013 with a factory in Hungary, where mainly the cutting and welding of the machines and attachments takes place. At present, there are 160 employees working in Oisterwijk and 70 employees in Eger, Hungary.

Visit us at LAMMA’17!

After a successful edition in 2016, TOBROCO-GIANT will be present at LAMMA 2017 once again. On the 18th and 19th of January, TOBROO-GIANT will be exhibiting at the largest agriculture and farm machinery show of the year! In cooperation with premium dealer Kirkland UK we will showcase a wide range of GIANT machinery and attachments for over 40,000 visitors.

The wheel loaders will be represented by two models: GIANT D332SWT and V452T. The D332SWT will be the smallest loader on the stand, with a service weight of 1500 kg, 33 hp diesel engine and tipping load of more than 1000 kg. The V452T is one of the bestselling models and for good reasons. With its 45 hp engine, low service weight (2,400 kg) and high tipping load (2,050 kg) this machine is capable to perform every job on a farm.  

Besides the loaders there will be two telescopic wheel loaders on display. The D254SW TELE is the smallest and most compact machine with a service weight of 1100 kg, width of only 92 centimetres and lifting height of more than 2,8 meters. The second machine is the V5003 TELE which is equipped with an reliable 50 hp Kubota diesel engine and is powered by heavy 12-tonnes axles. The V5003 TELE can reach a top speed of 25 km/h and heights up to 4.3 (!) meters with the extendable lifting arm.

When there is nog enough space for a (telescopic) wheel loader, a skid steer loader is the ideal solution. These little giants have a very short wheelbase (74 cm) and low service weight (starting from 750 kg). With a tipping load of 230 kg, the skid steer loaders will take over hard labour. From the three  available models there will be the SK251D on display. This skid steer is equipped with 25 hp diesel engine and driven by 4 powerful hydraulic wheel motors.    

Last machine on the stand will be one of the two available telehandlers, the 4548 TENDO HD. GIANT telehandlers are designed to manoeuvre in tight spaces and on rough terrain.  This makes the machine perfect to use both inside and outside. The 4548 TENDO HD is equipped with a 45 hp diesel engine, has a service weight of 2950 kg and lifting height 4,8 meters! 

Our experts can provide detailed information about all these compact machines at LAMMA’17.  The fast, heavy duty and powerful Giants, combined with their versatility proves itself how they are truly an all-in-one tool. We hope to welcome you at stand G55!

GIANT machines and attachments for the equine industry

TOBROCO-GIANT has a wide range of machines and attachments that are perfect to use for the horse industry. The compact design of the machines, versatility and a specific range of attachments make a lot of activities in the equine industry easier and less time consuming.

Compact design, big in performance
GIANT machines designed to operate in tight spaces and on rough terrain. Those benefits come in handy when you are working in stables. Depending on the tyres, the machines vary in width between 78 en 210 centimetres. The height starts at 2 meters for a machine with safety roof and 2,2 meters for a machine with a cabin. By selecting a foldable safety roof the height of a machine will decrease with 34 centimetres!

Despite the compact sizes and low service weight, these machine are capable to deliver a high pulling force and tipping load. A good example is the smallest wheel loader available. This machine has a service weight of 1.100 kg, but it has a tipping load of 1.000 kg. So the machine can almost lift its own weight. When there is nog enough space for a wheel loader, a skid steer loader is the ideal solution. These little giants have a very short wheelbase (74 cm) and low service weight (starting from 750 kg). With a tipping load of 230 kg, the skid steer loaders will take over hard labour. 

If a machine with more lifting power is required then the V452T wheel loader is the perfect machine for the job. With its four-cylinder engine (45 hp),  automatic gear and heavy planetary final drive, the V452T is considered to be a comfortable loader. Due to a high oil flow to the working hydraulics the machine is capable to work with heavy attachments that need a high output.

Specific attachments
It’s not only the machine that is of great importance but also the attachments. GIANT has  a specific range of attachments for the equine industry. Besides the standard attachments like manure forks, bale clamps and pallet forks there are various special attachments available. For example a vacuum unit to collect horse manure, levellers to prepare the riding area’s or a manure container. Because of continuous developments this range will expand even further. 

Leading role in a video
The machines that are mentioned above have a leading role is a video that has been recorded at Academy Bartels, a well-known training facility led by the Bartels family. They have participated in 6 Olympic Games and have won 3 Olympic medals. The video shows that GIANT machines are more than capable to perform a wide variety of tasks in the horse industry.

GIANT TENDO compliant with international safety regulations

Recently the GIANT TENDO has been tested by Aboma to check if the telehandlers meet with the newest international safety regulations. Aboma is an independent company and is specialized in safety, quality and  certifications. They have sent a team of specialists to inspect the machines and the conclusion was that the telehandlers are compliant with EN ISO 12100 and EN 1459

Safety and stability of machines
“As manufacturer the safety and stability of our machines have the highest priority,” explains Hein-Jan Hoogers, CE-coordinator at Tobroco Machines. “We have been manufacturing GIANT machines for 15 years now and at the moment we build 60 machines a week. These machines need to be safe for the operator and his surroundings! We have been cooperation with Aboma since 2002 because they are a leading company with a proven track record within their area of specialism. During an extensive testing period they have investigated its design, usage, stability, noise levels, etc. We are satisfied that the TENDO is compliant with all the new regulations.”

International standards
EN ISO 12100 is an international standard for the safety of machinery (general) and EN 1459 is an European standard for the safety of industrial trucks - Self-propelled variable reach trucks. For Tobroco Machines these international safety standards are important because the machines are shipped to 40 countries. Because the telehandlers are compliant with these standards, the safety of the TENDO  is recognized for all countries.

TOBROCO Machines “crowned” the best SME in The Netherlands

During a ceremony last evening, TOBROCO Machines received the 2016 King Willem I Award in the category of Small to Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) from the hands of Her Majesty Queen Máxima of The Netherlands. This national entrepreneurial prize is awarded every two years since 1958 to companies which have shown outstanding entrepreneurship. The board of the King Willem I Foundation expressed its appreciation for the manner in which TOBROCO Machines has developed into a manufacturer of high quality machinery and exports them worldwide.

New V5003 models

GIANT introduces three new V5003 models to anticipate on the revised emission regulations. Because of these regulations the V5003T and 6004T models, with 60 hp diesel engines won’t be available any time soon. That is why GIANT has expanded the V5003 range with three new models. The V5003 HD (successor of V6004T), V5003 X-TRA HD (successor of V6004T X-TRA) and V5003 TELE HD (successor of V6004T TELE) all have a 50 hp diesel engine from Kubota and they are equipped with 14 tonnes planetary axles with electric differential lock.

The V5003 HD wheel loader is a “Heavy Duty” version of the standard V5003 and has a service weight of 3.400 kg and lifting height of 3.2 meter. HD means that the machine has a higher pulling force. And this results in a higher driving speed with a maximum of 28 km/h. The standard of the V5003 HD is equipped with a lifting arm with Z-kinematics and this make the machine extremely versatile.

Especially for customers that have a demand for a high productivity, GIANT has introduced the V5003 X-TRA HD. This machine is characterized by a so-called P-kinematics. This means  a lower front frame and thus a lower centre of gravity of the load in comparison with the machine, resulting in a significantly higher tipping load (3.800 kg). An additional advantage is the excellent visibility of the operator on his/her work, which improves safety of the working conditions as well. The X-TRA HD machines are often used for road construction and earth moving.

With the V5003 TELE HD, GIANT introduces the first “Heavy Duty” version of a telescopic wheel loader. The compact sizes and low service weight (3.850 kg) makes this machine the perfect telescopic loader. Despite its compactness the V5003 TELE HD can drive with a maximum speed of 28 km/h and lift till a height of 4.3 meters!

All V5003 models are already equipped with  various standard options. The ROPS / FOPS safety roof, including safety doors,  in combination with a luxury sprung seat ensures a safe and comfortable working environment for the operator.  Besides the standard options GIANT has a full range of options and attachments available to make the machines perfect to use for many applications.

Automatic greasing system

GIANT offers for several models an automatic greasing system. The compact system has a unique cartridge for easy refill and offers an accurate, viscosity-independent grease supply over a wide temperature range. The pump is easy to program with integrated touch pads and LCD display.

The 1.7 litre cartridge, however, offers the right grease volume to meet the lubrication needs and larger service intervals of your GIANT. The system is available with a strong 12 or 24 Volt electric motor and features an 8 mm (0.32 inch) pump element as a standard, providing 0,26 cm3 (0.16 in3] of grease per cycle.

The easy to program timer with integrated LCD display with intuitive touch pads makes programming of the system extremely easy. Lubrication intervals can be set from 1 to 300 minutes, while the grease volume is defined by the number of revolutions of the pump rather than by a pre-set timing. As a result, the automatic greasing system supplies exactly the right grease quantity over a wide temperature range, independent of the viscosity of the grease. The number of pump revolutions can be programmed from 1 to 99 revolutions per grease cycle, which together with the forced stroke of the pumping elements result in an incomparable accuracy.

The automatic greasing system is available for the following models:

  • V452T
  • V452T X-TRA
  • V452T HD
  • V452T X-TRA HD
  • V501
  • V761T
  • V501 TELE

The mowing season is coming!

Temperatures rise and the frost disappears. That means that the mowing season is coming again! GIANT has now temporarily both the flail mower and the flail mower with collector on stock.

The mowing season is coming!

Temperatures rise and the frost disappears. That means that the mowing season is coming again! GIANT has now temporarily both the flail mower and the flail mower with collector on stock.

Flail mower

The flail mower offers the driver a very good view on his work. The mower is available in three different working widths and can be used both for mowing lawns tight as rough terrain. For optimal performance are different flails available for the mower. Additionally, you can mount loose verticutting blades between your flails. These blades hit the moss from your lawn and make a slit between the grass. This allows the lawn to breathe. As standard, the mower is equipped with the so-called “Y” flail blades.

The mower is powered by a hydraulic motor. This is connected to the double acting hydraulic valve on the lifting arm. The hydraulic motor requires an oil input of 35 to 40 liters per minute. This makes the mower suitable for all GIANT models. A leakage oil connection is not required, but recommended. The pressureless return ensures that the hydraulic oil doesn’t have to go back through the valve to the oil reservoir, so the heating of the oil is limited. For intensive long-term use, we recommend a double gear pump on your GIANT.

Flail mower with collector

The flail mower with collector offers besides the functionalities of the flail mower, that grass rests, leaves, branches and/or manure is sucked into the collector. This will keep your lawn or meadow clean and fresh. Also for the flail mower with collector are several blades available.

The flail mower with collector is available in cutting widths of 1,20 meters (700 liters collector) and 1,60 meters (900 liters collector). On the attachment is a heavy hydraulic motor mounted, that drives flail shaft hydraulically. The high rpm of the shaft creates a suction effect, making the grass, leaf debris and even manure is sucked into the collector. The high speed also creates a tightly mown lawn. In the frame are two slotted holes allowing the flail mower has freedom of moving, in comparison to the base frame. A chain between the frame and the wheel loader enables the lifting of the mower. The collector can be discharged by a second double-acting hydraulic function in front of your wheel loader. In addition, a leak-oil connection is required. Optionally there is a tine bar in front of the mowing unit, enabling the flail mower to function as paddock cleaner as well.

GIANT offers a cutter arm which is suitable as a front attachment. Unlike when the device is installed behind a tractor or loader, the driver has a good view on his work. The modern cutter arm is perfect for mowing roadsides and ditch borders and pruning hedges and various planting beds.

The cutter arm has a reach of 3,4 meters and has a hydraulic obstacle protection. This protects the arm and the mower from damages. In addition, the cutter arms have a parallel arm geometry. This relieves the driver, because the position of the tool doesn’t has to be corrected when changing the scoop. A mulching unit is mounted on the arm with two hydraulically driven, rotating blades. The mower has a working width of 1,25 meters.

For optimal functioning of the mower, your GIANT has to possess a minimum oil output of 46 L/min (210 bar). In addition, a double gear pump, stabilo system and pro-inching are required. The patented stabilo system ensures high stability of the machine. With the pro-inching function, the mower operates on a fixed rpm and you can control your driving speed with the foot pedal. A leak oil connection and 12 Volt connection on the lifting arm are also required.

The control of the arm and mower will take place in the cabin, through more-lever cable control or single-lever electro-proportional control. With the more-lever principle, you can operate four levers each with a cable connected to cutter arm. You can also choose for single-lever control. For this option you control an electro-proportional joystick, and you can turn the mower on and off. After using the mower you can disconnect the mower with the hydraulic quick change, so the wheel loader can also be used for other activities.

New rotary mowers

GIANT has switched to better quality rotary mowers. The new mowers are light, compact and are ideal for maintaining your lawns and meadows. The high quality blades ensure a perfectly mowed lawn. The mowers are available in three different widths: 120 cm, 150 cm and 180 cm.

The rotary mower is powered by a hydraulic motor, which is mounted on top of the mower. This motor is can process a maximum of 33 L/min. This makes the mower is currently only suitable for the GIANT D204SW till the GIANT D332SWT (X-TRA). Soon there will be new rotary mowers available for the other models. The two circulating blades are driven by two separated belt transmissions. On both transmissions is a tensioner to adjust the belt for correct tension. The height of the cutting unit is determined by 4 rotatable rubber wheels. On each wheel is a spacer mounted, which the height can be adjusted.

It is also possible to equip the rotary mower with a mulching kit. The mulching kit finely chopped the cut grass and spreads it over the lawn. So the natural cycle is complete. You save time and your garden is in full of health.

D332SWT (X-TRA) now also in Heavy Duty version

The D332SWT and the D332SWT X-TRA from GIANT are now available as Heavy Duty versions. These machines are equipped with a heavier hydraulic pump.

D332SWT (X-TRA) now also in Heavy Duty version

The D332SWT and the D332SWT X-TRA from GIANT are now available as Heavy Duty versions. These machines are equipped with a heavier hydraulic pump. This is offered as an option.

The big advantage of this HD-option is the increase of power for the driving hydraulics, which increases from 360 bar to 450 bar. This results in an even more powerful transmission. The big difference between the D332SWT and the D332SWT X-TRA is the front boom. The front-frame of the X-TRA is lowered, drastically increasing its lifting capacity. The tipping load of the D332SWT is 1060* kg and that of the D332SWT X-TRA is 1500kg* (nearly its own weight!)

*2330 lbs. - 3300lbs.
