Developed as a reliable and compact powerhouse, the G3500 X-TRA is ready to make its debut at bauma. At the same time, a comfortable and safe working environment has been created for easy and accurate operation. The brand-new articulated loader offers contractors, rental companies and governments the flexibility they need to get the job done within a reliable time schedule.
Because of the fact that building sites are often very narrow and there is not a lot of space to work in, customers have the demand for an agile loader with narrow wheelbase that can lift and transport heavy loads. The G3500 X-TRA distinguishes itself by a high tipping load (3,990 kg) compared to its own weight (3,600 kg). Depending on the choice of tires, the loader has a width between 134 and 165 cm. The height is below 2.27 m so narrow and low passages are no problem and the machine can be used inside as well.
To guarantee the right performance and fuel efficient operation, the G3500 X-TRA is powered by a new 48.5 kW/66 hp diesel engine from Kubota. The engine is equipped with a catalytic converter (DOC) and soot filter (DPF) and is prepared for Stage V emission regulations. Whether transporting large quantities of loads or rough-working activities, the hydrostatic 4-wheel drive with automotive control (Bosch Rexroth) and 100% switchable lock on both, 14-tons, axles prevents the machine from losing grip – even on loose soil. A driving speed of 30 km/h allows customers to travel fast from one building site to another or to transport materials in no time.
This compact wheel loader can be used in high-building, roadworks as well as underground work and presents itself as a versatile helper on restricted sites. A wide range of attachments transforms the G3500 X-TRA in a multi-purpose machine. Attach pallet forks and the G3500 X-TRA will transport complete pallets with cobblestones or move barriers. Change the attachment for a sweeper and keep building sites clean and tidy. Or use a snow blade during the winter season to keep roads and sidewalks free from snow. By choosing the right attachment it is possible to adjust the G3500 X-TRA to all working conditions and the machine can be used all year round.
First class operator comfort
The spacious cab of the new G3500 X-TRA was redesigned for more functionality and a new, modern look. Providing the operators a comfortable and safe working environment with great visibility for efficient all day operation. New features include a fully adjustable steering column and luxury air suspended seat. All necessary information (oil temperature, regeneration, etc.) can easily be read from a central LCD display during work. While using the joystick, the operator can rest his arm on ergonomically shaped armrest. The compact loader is standard equipped with a, EU certified, safety roof and this can optionally be extended to a full-option cabin.
Easy maintenance and the right back-up
Maintenance is easy with the G3500 X-TRA is easy because the service points are easy to reach. Filters, hydraulic system and engine can be freely accessed via the easy-to-open bonnet, tilting cab or other service panels. This reduces downtime because daily checks and maintenance can be carried out quickly and in a safe manner.
