Morbark has debuted its new Rayco 4000AWL articulated wheel loader.
"At Morbark, we are focused on continually providing new products and product improvements that meet our customers' needs and help them succeed in their businesses," said Jason Showers, Morbark director of tree care products. "The new 4000AWL articulated wheel loader is in direct response to our customer's requests and feedback for higher capacity, with cost and labor-saving tool options."
The 4000AWL is the second model in Rayco's articulated wheel loader line and is designed to meet the material handling needs of landscape contractors, tree services, rental companies, municipalities, and agricultural businesses. This turf-friendly, highly maneuverable articulated wheel loader offers a light footprint and heavy workload. The 4000AWL can take on a multitude of big challenges in tight areas while minimizing ground disturbances. In addition, the 4000AWL offers impressive lifting capacity and a compact size that easily works inside fenced-in yards, pens, nurseries, and more.
The 4000AWL is outfitted with a standard skid-steer attachment plate and can accommodate many attachments. In addition, the quick-attach system enables users to quickly switch from a bucket to forks or other tools.
The telescoping boom provides excellent lifting and dumping height, enabling loading on high-sided trucks and other applications that require extended reach. The 4000AWL has a maximum lift height (measured at the hinge pin) of 126 inches (320.7 cm). With its 48-hp (36-kW) Isuzu 4LE2T diesel engine, the 4000AWL generates a working lift capacity of 4,000 pounds (1814.4 kg).
The 4000AWL has been built with operator comfort and safety in mind, including a low-profile suspension seat within the ROPS/FOPS-certified roll cage. In addition, the open-air design provides a clear view of the worksite in all directions, and easy-to-use controls make these machines simple for anyone to operate.
