Between their advanced traction system, short turning radius, simple controls, and long list of easy-to-mount attachments, a MultiOne mini loader is handy for any type of work from farming to demolition. Which loader is right for you? With 6 model series to choose from, there’s a mini loader to fit your needs whether you prioritize maneuverability or power or somewhere in between.
This model puts the “mini” in mini loader with a total width that can be as little as 38.6 inches (980 mm) depending on equipment and a length of 73.2 inches (1,859 mm) without an attachment mounted. The 2 Series is powered by a Briggs & Stratton Vanguard engine and can reach a top speed of 7.5 mph (12 km/h.)
This mini loader is the perfect compliment for big machinery. With a choice of Kubota engines and high speed or high torque gearing, it can reach speeds up to 10.6 mph (17 km/h) while using almost every attachment MultiOne offers. This means it can do the jobs of large equipment where space is at a premium, or be used by itself for anything from hedge trimming to truck loading.
Think of this mini loader as a 5 Series with a little more of everything. They come with 28 hp and gearing options with top speeds from 6.8 to 9.3 mph (11-15 km/h) for the best trade-off between speed and torque, and they have a lift height of 115 inches (2.92 m) compared to the 5’s 108 inches (2.75 m.)
Available in a variety of gearing configurations backed by Yanmar diesels, the 7 Series is built for serious lifting strength: up to 2,645 lbs. (1,200 kg) can be lifted by the boom when retracted, while the maximum load drops only slightly to 2,249 lbs. (1,020 kg) with the boom fully extended. The 7.3 comes with an 11 function joystick, giving you better control over complex attachments.
This model is the successor the GT Series. It has a choice of 50 and 58 hp engines and delivers the best lift capacity to weight ratio of any mini loader on the market: weighing around 4,500 lbs, it can handle up to 4,585 lbs. (2,080 kg) with the boom retracted and 3,527 lbs. (1,600 kg) with the boom fully extended.
Want maximum power with the flexibility of MultiOne’s attachments? The 10 Series goes all out with a choice of a 72 hp Yanmar or 75 hp Kohler engine, a top speed of 24.8 mph (40 km/h), and the ability to lift 3,748 lbs. (1,700 kg) with the boom fully extended. It’s not just MultiOne’s most powerful mini loader, it’s the most powerful mini loader on the market today.
Speed and strength are useful, but what really makes these loaders shine is the wide range of attachments available to use with them.
