Hakmet Pairs Logmer Loaders with Excavators
Loaders Specially Designed for Harvester Use
Date Posted: 10/1/2001
Hakmet Ltd. has started to install Logmer parallel movement loaders on its excavators. The 200-sized excavator in the accompanying photo is shown with a Logmer model 1610 with a Keto 150HD4 harvester. It has a maximum reach of 36 feet when including a 6.5 foot extension. Lifting capacity is over 2,600 pounds at maximum reach.
These loaders are specially designed for harvester use and feature a fast, horizontal movement with a single joystick function; the vertical motion is also done with a single joystick action. The result is significantly higher productivity.
Four Logmer sizes are available as standard for various excavator-Keto mountings. Special sizes can also be made for custom applications.
For more information, call Erkki Kukkonen at Hakmet, (800) 361-2288, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
