As Boxer Equipment prepares to catch the eyes of construction industry managers at next month’s World of Concrete event in Las Vegas, the company continues to court landscape contractors with its mini skid steers.
World of Concrete is set for Feb. 2-5 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Boxer Equipment, a Morbark Inc. company, will be displaying two machines at the trade show that have proven popular among landscapers, the 322D and the 525DX compact utility loaders, along with a number of widely used attachments.
The 300 Series is Boxer’s smallest entry into the mini-skid market. Boxer says the 322D model can handle “big machine” tasks while providing ease of access because of its small footprint. The 322D’s tandem pump hydraulic operating system develops up to 12.4 GPM of hydraulic flow to run the machine’s auxiliary and propulsion systems, providing enough power to handle full-size attachments like a 30-inch auger or 36-inch trencher.
The 322D (D is for diesel; there’s also a gasoline model) has a tip capacity of 1,325 pounds and an operating capacity of 464 pounds at 35 percent tip load. And at 34.5 inches wide, a 322 has no problem getting into and out of tight areas.
The Boxer 525DX Compact Utility Loader is the company’s answer to federal Tier 4 Final EPA emission regulations for diesel engines, replacing the Boxer 532DX.
The 525DX features a redesigned hydraulic package, the company says, resulting in smoother drive controls and improved simultaneous functionality. In addition, the Boxer 525DX features improved protection of the radiator and hydraulic oil cooler components.
Attachments available include the following:
- General purpose buckets of 34.5 inches to 48 inches, with or without teeth, and multi-purpose buckets from 35 inches to 42.5 inches.
- Cement bowl: Ideal for use in hard-to-reach areas, Boxer says, such as fence installation and concrete repair (sidewalks, driveways, etc.). Maximum capacity of 4.8 cubic feet; mixing capacity of 3.2 cubic feet.
- Hydraulic concrete breaker: provides 550-1,000 blows per minute and includes universal mount and hoses.
