New Holland Construction is celebrating 40 years of manufacturing skid-steer loaders, having started in 1972 with the introduction of the L35 — a vertical-lift skid-steer loader equipped with the patented Super Boom lift linkage.
Today, New Holland skid-steer loaders are sold in 120 countries around the world through New Holland Construction and New Holland Agriculture dealer channels.
“For 40 years, equipment operators have trusted New Holland Construction skid-steer loaders to earn a living and tackle a variety of construction, landscaping and agriculture applications,” said Dave December, director of global marketing communications, CNH Construction Equipment. “And for 40 years, New Holland Construction has been committed to meeting the unique needs of contractors and other construction equipment users, including tens of thousands of owner-operators who got their start in the business with a New Holland Construction skid-steer loader.”
Since the introduction of the L35, New Holland Construction has produced more than 200,000 skid-steer loaders.
The company’s largest-selling skid-steer loader model in the world is the New Holland L218 Super Boom. Rated at 57 hp, the L218 has an operating weight of 5,850 pounds and a bucket breakout force of 5,435 pounds.
The company created a special 40th anniversary logo to commemorate the milestone. The logo will be displayed at industry events throughout the year, including Intermat 2012, April 16-21 at the Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Centre in Paris.
