Specially designed for heavier loads, the Barko 160A back of cab knuckleboom loader delivers a maximum front lift capacity of 18,860 pounds. Its durable construction keeps the machine working hard for the long haul.
The 160A is powered by a customer-supplied PTO.
Wider, all-welded boom construction with fabricated tube type design includes engineered sweeping curves for added strength and increased fatigue resistance.
Rotary manifold allows for 360-degree continuous boom rotation and provides electrical and hydraulic power to the lower frame.
Sectional control type valves come with mechanical joysticks.
Zinc Plated Pins
Extra large zinc plated pins and bolts provide added durability in high-stress areas.
Cylinders are made of heavy-duty steel tubing, and heavy chrome cylinder rods are heat-treated for added strength.
Comfortable operator platform includes a fold-down seat with armrests. The rotating platform includes beneath-the-seat style valve mounting and foot swing pedal.
Mounting bolts and support plates are supplied. Loader is also equipped with load securing posts and dual ladders with non-slip treading.
One set of independently operated foldaway stabilizers helps keep loads steady.
