Along with the standard Giant D337T, Tobroco Machines says this model will now be available in the X-TRA version as well. The company says that the D337T X-TRA will have a lower front frame and thus a lower center of gravity, which they say will result in excellence on the attachments and stability of the machine.

Featuring a tipping load of 2.054 kg in comparison with 1.450 kg for the standard model, the D337T X-TRA’s new wheel loader has a 33 hp, 3-cylinder Kubota diesel engine. The company says it is also equipped with a hydraulic pump from Bosch Rexroth for smooth and powerful driving characteristics.

Measured with earth buckets, the service weight of the machine is 2.200 kg, and the lifting height is 2.45 m. The pendulum joint between the front and back frame, like all Giant machines, is completely maintenance free, the company says.

Driven by a hydrostatic four-wheel drive, the D337T X-TRA has automotive control and automatic differential lock on both axles. This, the company says, gives the machine a maximum driving speed of 18 km/h.

To meet European regulations, the X-TRA model is standardly equipped with a ROPS/FOPS safety roof and safety doors. Optional extras available for this model include a safety roof deluxe, foldable safety roof or cabin.

This machine can be delivered in a Heavy Duty (HD) version, and it will be equipped with a bigger hydraulic pump. The company says that a great advantage of this option is the extra tractive force in its second gear.

Eterra Attachments recently released their excavator brush mower, which the company says can quickly adjust to sudden changes in terrain, directions and material types.

Since it is a flail style mower, the company says it can clear brush from roadsides, driveways, fields and ditches, and these multi-use mowers are as tough as they are versatile, Eterra says.

The EX-30 can fit excavators and backhoes from 7,500 lbs to 14,000 lbs; the EX-40 from 9,000 lbs to 20,000 lbs; and the EX-50 from 17,000 lbs to 25,000 lbs.

Featuring cutting capacities ranging from 4-inch to 8-inch material, depending on attachment size, and a swing weight light enough to cut in all directions and inches without fear of tipping, the company says these attachments boast superior cutting power and efficiency for mini excavator operators.

Eterra says that this machine also has a superior balanced shaft and 2 lb blades powered by a quality Permco USA motor, and the company says it upholds its commitment to using systems that have proven to be strong and reliable in a wide variety of working conditions.
