Top 100: Easy to Enter, Exit and Service

September 28, 2010

VolvoVolvo has entered the skid-steer-loader market with its MC line. The five loaders are easy to enter and exit, and feature ratings from 49.5 to 86 horsepower. Operating capacities range from 1,350 to 2,450 pounds. The rear door swings open wide, and a top engine cover flips up for access to key service points. For major service, the cab tilts forward by removing two bolts. Spring-assist shocks make it easy to raise the cab, and a mechanical latch safely locks the cab in the open position. The height-to-hinge clearance provides easy loading, and high ground clearance allows the machines to maneuver over rough terrain. Two double-acting bucket cylinders provide exceptional breakout force. Estimated list prices: $22,700 to $30,400.
