Maxo, a compact and agile tool holder
Handling of materials for the construction or agricultural sector, road maintenance work for the road segment, but also greenery care for the municipal area. The loaders, designed and manufactured by Cast Group, a Venetian company based in Mirano (Venice), are right tool-holder machines appreciated for their compact dimensions (3153x1500x2138 millimeters and 2200 kg unladen weight), for their maneuverability and, of course, for their great operational flexibility. The Venetian company’s diversified range has recently been enriched with a new product line. These are the four Maxo models available with single and dual-speed engines with 50 and 57 horsepower. The two 50-horsepower machines are powered by the Yanmar 4TNV88 engine, which, in the dual speed version, provides speeds of 15 and 30 km/h, compared to 20 km/h in the single speed version. On the contrary, there is no change in the structural architecture, including the hydrostatic four-wheel drive transmission, the electric differential lock, the liquid cooling system, the hydraulic parallelogram, and a hydraulic flow rate of 80 liters per minute (72 for single speed). These specifications also characterize the other two models in the Maxo series, the 57 horsepower loaders. What distinguishes them from the previous ones is the engine, with a propulsion system powered by the Kohler KDI 1903TCR STAGE V, capable of delivering 57 horsepower at speeds of up to 20 km/h in the case of the single-speed version, and 10 and 30 in the case of the dual-speed version. The Maxo’s profile is completed by 12V and 165W auxiliary sockets for services, LED work lights, digital dashboard, and ergonomic seat.
