Hunderd articulated loaders from TOBROCO-GIANT for Boels Rental

One of the most renowned rental companies in Europe is investing in 100 new GIANT machines of the V452T X-TRA type.

During Bauma the key to the first machine was handed over by director / owner Toine Brock to Volker Blome, Manager Product Development at Boels Rental.

From mid-April, the machines will be delivered in phases during 2019. The compact wheel loaders are then available at locations in the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Austria and Switzerland. “Existing customers specifically asked for a GIANT machine because of the speed when it comes to lifting and driving. In addition, the easy operation is experienced as very pleasant, "says Matti Moenen, Manager Purchasing at Boels Rental. “We adjust our rental range to the wishes and needs of our customers. We were already familiar with TOBROCO-GIANT, but contacts have intensified from 2017. Then the choice was made quickly. Not only because of the reliability and low maintenance costs, but also because of the extensive network of GIANT dealers. This ensures that regional service can be provided "

Boels Rental has specifically chosen the X-TRA variant of the V452T. Due to the lower front frame, the center of gravity of the load relative to the machine remains low on the ground and this results in a tipping load of 2,600 kg. Thanks to the lowered front frame, the user also has a good view of the work and can therefore work accurately and safely. These advantages make the machines extremely suitable for work in (road) construction, demolition and earthworks. A 45 hp diesel engine from Kubota in combination with the hydrostatic 4 wheel drive with automotive steering and limited lock on both, 8 tonne axles always ensures sufficient grip, lots of pulling power and smooth movement.

Toine Brock: “We see the collaboration with Boels Rental as a confirmation that investing in quality pays off. The V452T X-TRA has been one of our best-selling models for years. This has everything to do with the fact that the articulated loader is known for its compact dimensions, performance and maximum usability. By developing and producing machines in an innovative way, GIANT machines remain competitive in terms of prices, without compromising on reliability. We hope that this collaboration can be expanded even further in the coming years."

Boels Rental is in the top 25 of rental companies worldwide. Machine rental is the core activity of Boels Rental. With more than 400 branches in the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, the United Kingdom, Luxembourg, Austria, the Czech Republic, Poland, Italy, Slovakia and Switzerland, Boels rents out the most modern and latest machines and tools.

DISCOVER THE WORLD OF GIANT AT BAUMA 2019

Customers worldwide have the demand for ecological and reliable machines that can carry out a wide variety of activities all year round. TOBROCO-GIANT offers the machines, technology and with an extensive dealer network the support for these customers. At Bauma 2019 TOBROCO-GIANT will exhibit its latest technologies, service and equipment under the theme “Discover the world of GIANT.”

On a 500 m² outdoor stand (FN.1021/1) TOBROCO-GIANT is presenting a wide range of new models and various trusted models. In total 13 of its latest models, from articulated loaders to telehandlers and skid steer loaders, along with a wide range of attachments will be displayed at the largest construction machinery trade fair in the world.

First electric loaders
In response to the increasing demand for zero-emission, TOBROCO-GIANT is introducing two complete new electric wheel loaders at Bauma in the 2.2 tonnes class. The G2200E X-TRA with lower front can be seen in action at the demo area and the standard G2200E, with cabin, can be found inside the hospitality area. Both machines are standard equipped with a lithium-ion battery that has a minimum capacity of 12,3 kWh. With their compact design the electric wheel loaders are ideal for indoor applications or construction sites in urban areas.

Three new loaders; G1500, G2200 and G3500
Together with the new electric loaders TOBROCO-GIANT is showcasing three new articulated loaders. With the G4500 range last year TOBROCO-GIANT launched the first models that are prepared for the upcoming, EU Stage V, clean engine standards. The G1500 X-TRA, G2200 X-TRA and G3500 X-TRA are the next models in line to replace previous generation models in the range between 1,500
and 3,500 kg.

The loaders are ideal for narrow building sites because of their compactness, maneuverability and power as well as the fact that they are a solid investment because of their reliability and high productivity. Combined with a range of 100 different attachments ensures the possibility to work with one machine all year long. By choosing the right attachment it is possible to adjust a GIANT to working conditions for ground care, demolition, forestry or winter service.

Concept model of new GT5048 telehandler
Later this year the successful 4548 TENDO HD will be replaced with the new GT5048. At Bauma TOBROCO-GIANT will show a concept version of the new GT5048 so customer can see this new model for the first time. TOBROCO-GIANT has taken the concept of this jack of all trades to a new level and used the extensive knowledge of the TENDO and newest technologies to develop this modern telehandlers in the 2x2 meter class. Meaning the compact telehandler is only 1.91 meters high and 1.65 meters wide.

The GT5048 is powered by a 36kW/50 HP, Kubota, diesel engine with catalytic converter (DOC) and soot filter (DPF) that meet the latest, EU Stage V, clean engine standards. Because of its compactness, four-wheel steering and lifting height of 4.8 meters the GT5048 is perfect to maneuver in tight spaces while lifting materials on construction sites or industrial environments.

Trusted models
Alongside the new models TOBROCO-GIANT is exhibiting multiple machines that have proven themselves in many industries. Starting with the, in 2018 renewed, skid steer loaders. Due to its compact sizes, the SK252D can reach locations where other machines won’t fit and because of its low weight it is possible to use the machine inside a building to break and demolish.

In the forestry area TOBROCO-GIANT will show a Groundskeeper version of the D254SW TELE. This telescopic loader is developed with the help and feedback from the tree care industry and gardeners. The V452T X-TRA HD is the most popular loader from TOBROCO-GIANT because it can lift almost its own weight and is still light enough to transport from site to site. With the G4500 X-TRA TOBROCO-GIANT will introduce a newly developed cabin for the G4500 range that has a modern climate system and creates a comfortable and silent working environment.

TOBROCO-GIANT shows world premieres during first INTERMAT

This year, TOBROCO-GIANT will participate for the first time in this international exhibition for construction and infrastructure, which takes place in Paris from April 23rd to April 28th  Visitors can meet two world premieres in hall 5B at booth M044. First, there is a 25 hp version of the new skidsteer loaders, the SK252D. The second premiere is even more impressive, because it is a new model in a new segment for TOBROCO-GIANT. The G4500 X-TRA, a wheel loader in the 4.5-ton class with low front frame for extra lifting capacity.

Compact design, BIG in performance
This slogan applies more than ever to the new skidsteer loaders. Due to the compact sizes, the skidsteer can reach places where other machines cannot come. Depending on the tyres the machines can have a width between 76 (!) and 110 centimetres. Another benefit is the possibility to changes tyres on a jobsite because of the application of new flanges. The SK252D has a limited service weight of 810 kg and can therefore be used inside a building to break, demolish and remove materials.

By applying a larger hydraulic pump the power is increased to 35 L/min and 180 bar. Larger wheel motors provide better driving characteristics and more pushing and pulling power. Combined with a tipping load of 434 kg this ensures that the skidsteer can carry out work safely and efficiently.

Entering a new segment with G4500 X-TRA
With the arrival of the G4500 X-TRA, the G4500 series is complete, after the G4500 and G4500 TELE were introduced in November last year. This X-TRA model is specifically designed to perform heavy work in the construction and earthmoving business. Depending on the options a G4500 X-TRA has an operating weight between 4,400 and 5,200 kg. Making the G4500 range the first machines in the 4.5-ton class.

The machine can be completely configured according to the wishes of customers. For example, there is a choice of two different Kubota diesel engines; one with 36 kW / 50 hp and a version with 54 kW / 74 hp. Both are equipped with a catalytic converter (DOC) and particulate filter (DPF) and comply with the latest Stage V standards. The hydrostatic 4-wheel drive with automotive steering and 100% switchable lock on both 16- tons- axles always ensure sufficient grip, a lot of pulling power and smooth movement. With a tipping load between 3,500 and 5,000 kg the G4500 X-TRA is extremely popular for construction works and ground care.

Other machines that are on display on the TOBROCO stand are the D254SW TELE, V452T X-TRA HD and 4548 TENDO HD. These machines are well known for their performance, high efficiency and reliability. Strengths that are of high importance when it comes to construction, demolition and excavation work.

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.

EXPANSION TOBROCO-GIANT IN OISTERWIJK

Tobroco-Giant has grown rapidly in recent years. Due to the continuous demand for loaders, telehandlers and skid steers as well as the introduction of new models, the demand has exceeded GIANTs expectations.  For the coming years the expectations are that the demand will increase even further and therefore Tobroco-Giant will expand its current production facility in Oisterwijk.

First, Research & Development and the sales department move to a new and modern location in Oisterwijk. The newly built property will accommodate all the technical gadgets that are necessary to develop new and innovative products. Tobroco-Giant will invest in cleaner stage V diesel engines and electrically powered machines in the coming years. The current location where R & D and sales are located will be added to the production site, which will result in more capacity.

Increased production area
The expansion of production at the current location will take place in different stages. In total, the production facility will be increased with 8,000 m2 and continues to be divided over two storeys to make optimal use of the available space. There will be the new production lines that run LEAN and also the "paperless" production will be implemented even further. In addition, more pre-assembly will take place and will be centralised . This improves lead times and components can be transported faster to the production lines. Automation is further balanced with various suppliers. Furthermore, Tobroco-Giant continues to invest in welding techniques such as the 2 newly installed welding robots, bending machines and spindle machines. This will help to increase production and the optimise the quality.

Smart storage and internal distribution
For the storage of parts, production and service, a high-rise warehouse of 16 meters high will be built. The warehouse will be driven completely automatically. Incoming goods for the warehouse will be received via several new loading docks. This ensures that the parts and finished products will not cross each other anymore. Roller banks are used to transport the incoming goods to the temporary storage location where various (quality) checks take place. Some of the goods then go directly to production and a part is stored in the warehouse. Just in time delivery and maintaining high quality are the "key words".

Om zeker te zijn van een efficiëntie aanvoer van onderdelen, is er reeds geïnvesteerd in een nieuw automatiseringssysteem. Een computersysteem stuurt het gehele logistieke proces aan en zorgt ervoor dat de juiste aantallen gepickt worden uit het magazijn. Elektrische trekkers zullen dagelijks diverse rondes maken en zorgen dat alles op de juiste plaats terecht komt. Bij de nieuwbouw wordt tevens rekening gehouden met de mogelijkheid tot het toepassen van aanvoerbanden in een later stadium.

In order to ensure an efficient supply of parts, there has already been an investment in a new automation system. A computer system controls the entire logistics process and ensures that the right quantities are picked up from the warehouse. Electric trolleys will make various rounds on a daily basis and ensure that everything will be in the right place. During the building process the possibility for adding conveyor belts at a later stage will be taken into account.

Ready for the future: TOBROCO-GIANT introduces new G4500 range

TOBROCO-GIANT will reveal two machines from a complete new range during AgriTechnica. At stand A40 in hall 6, the G4500 and G4500 TELE will make their exclusive debut during the world’s largest trade fair for agricultural machinery. These two models are the only two machines from a complete new range that will exist of nine models. The compact and manoeuvrable G4500 machines will become the standard for productivity, comfort and reliability. From the middle of 2018 the first machines will be delivered to customers in Europe. 

Complete new segment
Together with the introduction of these models there will be new model names introduced as well. The letter G stands for GIANT and 4500 stands for 4,500 kg; the 4.5 tonnes class. A segment where TOBROCO-GIANT was not yet active until now. The weight of the G4500 starts at 4,200 kg for the basic version and, depending on the options, can reach up to 4,800 kg. With the arrival of these machines, TOBROCO-GIANT offers a complete portfolio of machines weighing between 750kg (SK211G) and 6,000 kg (V761T TELE).

Ready for the future
In mid-2016, a new Research & Development Centre was opened at the factory of TOBROCO-GIANT to develop and build new machines and options. Furthermore, the engineering department has expanded considerably so that all the knowledge is in-house to develop new machines. The G4500 series is the first product of these investments and gives a glimpse into the future of new GIANT machines.

BIG in performance
Like all GIANT machines, the G4500 models will distinguish themselves by a high tipping load compared to their own weight. Depending on the options, the G4500 with Z-bar has a tipping load between 3,500 and 4,000 kg (measured with hinge point in lower position). For extremely heavy work there is the G4500 X-TRA. It has a lower front frame and can lift even more weight due to its low centre of gravity. Because of these features, the X-TRA models have become extremely popular for construction workers and ground care. A G4500 X-TRA has a tipping load between 3,500kg and 5,000 kg (measured with hinge point in lower position).

There are three different Kubota diesel engines available for the G4500 machines. First of all, a 36 kW / 50 hp version, which is already available in various current models. In addition, two new engines are available, a 46 kW / 66 hp variant and a 54 kW / 74 hp version. Both are equipped with a catalytic converter (DOC) and soot filter (DPF) and meet the latest, Stage V ready, clean engine standards.

The machines are developed with productivity as one of the spearheads. Whether transporting large quantities of loads or rough-working activities, the hydrostatic 4-wheel drive with automotive control (Rexroth) and 100% switchable lock on both, 16-tons, axles always provides enough grip, a lot of pulling force a smooth movement. Optionally, the driving speed can be increased to 35 km/h, which improves productivity even more.

In addition, various hydraulic systems are available. The basic machine will be equipped with a direct-driven hydraulic system on the joystick, which can be extended to a servo-controlled version. A high flow version will also be available and can deliver 120 L/min to the chosen attachment. In this way, we can meet the wish of every customer.

Safety and comfort
A combination of safety and comfort ensures that the operator can carry out his work in a responsible manner. The machines are standard equipped with a safety roof and this can optionally be extended to a, silent, full-option cabin. The G4500 machines have been extensively tested on safety by an independent authority and are internationally ROPS/FOPS certified. All-round visibility gives the operator an excellent view on his work and allows safe and precise operation.

A comfortable working environment has been created in the cabin so long working days are no problem. The steering column is adjustable and all necessary information can easily be read from a central display. While using the joystick, the operator can rest his arm on ergonomically shaped armrest. All key functions are close to the joystick so that they can be easily operated.

The articulated pendulum joint gives the G4500 machines extreme manoeuvrability, accuracy and off-road mobility. Optionally, it is possible to equip the machines with the patented Stabilo System or boom suspension. Both options provide extra safety and comfort because unevenness’s are absorbed without any compromise to the performance.

Solid investment
GIANT machines are a solid investment because of their reliability and high productivity. Only the best components have been chosen and tested extensively before they were applied to the G4500 series. TOBROCO-GIANT works closely with quality suppliers like Bosch Rexroth, Comer, Kubota and Hydac during the development of new machines.

Performing maintenance to the machines is easy because the service points are easy to reach.
By opening the hood, there is convenient access to the various filters, they can be cleaned or replaced quickly. Information about oil temperature, regeneration, power modes, etc., can be read from the dashboard so that you can always see these important data during work.

The customer's wishes
G4500 machines can be configured according to the customers wishes. Starting with the selection for Z-bar, X-TRA or TELE model. Then there is a choice of a 50 hp, 66 hp or 74 hp diesel engine that is Stage V ready. Also with regard to the options there are plenty of possibilities.  Consider the choices for a cabin or safety roof, increased driving speed, air conditioning, additional counterweight and up to 5 double-acting hydraulic functions at the front. This gives customers the opportunity to assemble the machine precisely for the work that needs to be done and for a competitive price.

PROPORTIONAL AND ECONOMICAL BEDDING: GIANT ZV350

TOBROCO-GIANT has developed a spreader bucket for sawdust which is perfect for bedding cow cubicles in an efficient and economical way. When the ZV350 (ISO content of 370 litre) is equipped with the optional side brush and manure scraper it is possible to bed and brush 40 cubicles per minute and with one pass.

After putting the spreader bucket into practice it was possible to bed 100 cubicles with only 100 litres of sawdust. This will not only save you 50% of sawdust but also economical savings of thousands of Euro’s per year. Furthermore the health of the cows will improve because the racks, cubicles borders and mats are clean after a pass. Clean cubicles decreases the change for udder disease and problems with claws.

Save time
With the use of the ZV350 manual labour will belong to the past and valuable time will be saved. The spreader bucket is equipped with a Hardox blade and wear strip so bedding materials can be self-loaded. Like every attachment from TOBROCO-GIANT the bucket can be attached and detached within seconds because of its hydraulic attachment system. The supports make sure that the bucket can be stored safe and stable and can even be loaded before it is attached to the machine.

Versatile

The dosage of the ZV350 can be controlled accurately from fully closed to fully opened. This makes the spreader bucket not only suitable for sawdust but also for flax litter and grinded rapeseed or wheat flour. By-products can be mixed easily because of the screwed mixer blades and dose plate.

Options for expansion
The standard ZV350 can be expanded with a manure scraper and/or side brush. When the bucket is equipped with the manure scraper then the combination will clean the racks during the bedding process. The scrapper is made from Erlan rubber and fitted with a Hardox blade on the side to scrape the edge of the cubicles as well.

To keep the cubicles clean it is also possible to equip the spreader bucket with a hydraulic side brush (75 cm in diameter). The brush will turn into the cubicle so it is possible to start cleaning from the beginning and over the entire length. In the standard setting the brush will reach till 75 cm inside the cubicles but the height and length are adjustable. In folded position the side brush has the same width as the bucket so it is even possible to manoeuvre in tight spaces. Furthermore it is possible to self-load the ZV350 even when the brush is folded in.

Technical information:

Content: 370 litre
Weight: 285 kg (410 kg including scraper and side brush)
Width:  1300 mm (1570 mm including scraper and side brush)
Required: 3rd function for hydro motors of bucket and side brush 
  4th function for folding the side brush in and out
Optional:  Level meter for even wear of the scraper
  Pro-inching


Advantages
Ergonomic: no more hard manual labour
Efficient: bedding and cleaningof 40 cubicles per minute in one pass
Economical: saving of sawdust up to 50%. 100 litre for 100 cubicles can be achieved easily. This will result in savings of €2400,- per year
(365 x €6.5 - €7 per bale of 90 litres) at 100 cubicles.
Hygienic: racks, edges of the cubicles and mats are clean after every pass.
Clean cows means less problems with claws and udder disease.
Versatile: the screwed mixer blades and dose plate make it easy to adjust the bucket for other types of litter.
Time saving: possibility for loading the bucket in advance and quick attach and detach because of its hydraulic attachment system.

NEW X-TRA MODEL FOR TOBROCO-GIANT: D337T 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 2.054 kg in comparison with 1.450 kg 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 2.200 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 maximum 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.

Looking back on Queen Maxima's visit to TOBROCO Machines

From the drawing room to the R&D center and from the sales office to the production line. Queen Máxima took her time to visit TOBROCO Machines in Oisterwijk, The Netherlands on Thursday, June 8th. The compact machinery manufacturer won the King Willem I Prize last year in the small and medium-sized category and could expect a royal visit as a follow up. Queen Máxima is the honorary chairman of the King Willem I Foundation.

TOBROCO is the manufacturer of GIANT-branded compact machinery for the green industry, agriculture, construction and other applications. The company won the King Willem I Prize - the 'Oscar' of Dutch business - by its daring, power, durability and perseverance. CEO Toine Brock gave Queen Máxima a plant tour and told about the innovations that TOBROCO-GIANT applies to the development of new machines and in the production process.

A look back:
Queen Máxima was introduced to environmentally friendly machinery in the R&D center. Specifically for developing new machines, research and development center was opened in 2016 to build and test prototypes.

All machines are designed and built in the modern factory in Oisterwijk. At the production line, Queen Máxima was consulted about the paperless running of this line and the routing of the machines. TOBROCO-GIANT offers one of the broadest portfolios in the industry with a total of 36 different models in forty countries.

After a demonstration on the outdoor grounds it was time for a group photo with the more than 180 employees. After the staff cheered spontaneously when Queen Máxima arrived, she took a nice spot between Toine Brock and his wife Caroline.

With a broad attendance of the public and the invited press, the Queen said farewell after a one and a half hour during visit. "This visit shows that our hard work has paid off," said Toine Brock after Queen Máxima was in the car.

TOBROCO Machines becomes TOBROCO-GIANT

TOBROCO Machines has grown rapidly in recent years and the number of GIANT machines produced is growing just as fast. We produced and delivered the 15,000th machine in February this year. Also, the international dealer network is expanding and our machines are available in more than 40 countries worldwide.

Now that TOBROCO Machines is becoming a global player on the market, there was the need for an international brand name. TOBROCO-GIANT indicates the relationship between the manufacturer (TOBROCO Machines) and products (GIANT machinery). Furthermore, the brand name is unique and protected worldwide.

New logo
The new brand name has necessitated a change in the logo. The GIANT logo, as shown on the machines, has been added “BY TOBROCO”. In addition, an emblem has been developed in which the characteristic GIANT wheel loader is displayed. Both elements form the new TOBROCO-GIANT logo and will be implemented in all expressions. This includes printing, websites, merchandising, ads and all other media.

The characteristic ant will disappear from the logo, but will remain on the machines and various other expressions. Print and advertisements are advertised with the slogan: Compact design, BIG in performance. This clarifies the relationship between the machines and the ant. GIANT stands for Gigantic ANT because these working animals are able to carry anywhere from 10 to 50 times their body weight.

Ready for the future
With the new brand name and the new logo, there is uniformity in the corporate style. In addition, TOBROCO-GIANT can grow internationally as a brand and raise awareness for its machines.

TOBROCO-GIANT shows X-TRA models and skidsteer at first IRE

TOBROCO-GIANT will participate at the International Rental Exhibition for the first time. Especially for rental companies the Dutch manufacturer of (telescopic) wheel loaders, telehandlers and skid steer loaders will showcase two wheel loaders (D332SWT X-TRA and V452T X-TRA HD) and a skid steer loader (SK251D) at stand 5610. The machines are well known for their compact design, high performance and low operating costs. Extra beneficial is the easy way of operating the machines. A short instruction is more than enough to get to work.

Significant higher tipping load with X-TRA models
Compared to a standard model an X-TRA model has a lower front frame and thus a lower centre of gravity of the load in comparison with the machine. This results in a significantly higher tipping load varying between 460 and 1.600 kg of extra weight, depending on the chosen model. Because of the lower front frame the operator has an excellent view on his work and this allows safe and precise operation. Making the machines suitable for (road) construction, landscaping and demolition purposes.

First model is the GIANT D332SWT X-TRA with a service weight of 1.550 kg and 33 horsepower engine. The machine has a differential lock, so there is minimal friction with the surface.  Second model is the V452T X-TRA HD. HD stand for  “Heavy Duty” which means that the wheel loader is equipped with 12-tonnes axles and a bigger gear pump, providing a driving speed of 28 km/h and increased pulling force. With a tipping load of 2.700 kg the V452T X-TRA HD can handle every job.

Giant skid steer loader
Skid steer loaders are the smallest machines from the range of GIANT machinery. These machines are developed to take over manual labour. Physical stress will be minimized and activities will be done in a responsible way. Because of their short wheelbase and low weight (starting from 750 kg) these machines can even do their work in tight spaces. On display there will be a 25 hp diesel version, equipped with a compact sweeper. GIANT skid steer loaders are driven by 4 powerful hydraulic wheel motors which provide a high thrust and pulling force.

You can find GIANT-TOBROCO during the International Rental Exhibition at stand 5610.

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.

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.

VERSATILE GIANT SKID STEER IN FULL PRODUCTION

GIANT revealed its first skid steer loader during the GIANT open days in October 2014. After more than a year of development and testing the little GIANT is ready for production. Especially for this range of compact machines we have built a new and modern production line at the end of 2015. Since January of this year, the line is in full production.

It’s clear that these powerful and all-round machines are the right expansion of the current range of machinery. The first machines are already delivered to dealers in Germany, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Denmark and United Kingdom.  

GIANT skid steer loaders combine a low weight (750 kg) and compact sizes with a high tractive force and tipping load. This makes the machines extremely flexible and suitable to use for different areas of application. Together with a wide range of attachments it is possible to adjust a GIANT skid steer loader to working conditions for agricultural purposes, (road) construction, property maintenance or for private use.

The current range of skid steer loaders exists of 3 different models. One gasoline version with 21 HP (SK 211 G) and two diesel version with 20 HP (SK 201 D) or 25 HP (SK 251 D). The machines are equipped with 4 powerful hydraulic wheel motors, which have a low need of maintenance.

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.
