Articulated wheel loader

Morbark introduces the Rayco 1800AWL articulated wheel loader.

Designed to meet the material handling needs of landscape contractors, tree services, rental companies, municipalities, and agricultural businesses, the 1800AWL is the first model of Rayco’s new articulated whel loader (AWL) line, and is heavy on capabilities and light on delicate landscape surfaces such as grass, building foundations and paving stones.

The Rayco 1800AWL articulated wheel loader has a maximum lift height (measured at the hinge pin) of 114 inches. 

With a standard mini skid steer attachment plate, this AWL can accommodate a wide variety of attachments. The quick-attach system enables the user to quickly and easily switch from a bucket to forks or other tools for optimum on-the-job flexibility and bottom-line performance.

The telescoping boom provides excellent dumping and lifting height, enabling loading on high-sided trucks and other applications that require extended reach. The 1800AWL has a maximum lift height (measured at the hinge pin) of 114 inches. With its 24.8-horsepower Kubota D1105 diesel engine, the 1800AWL generates a working lift capacity of 1,800 pounds.

Tthe 1800AWL is only 50.5 inches wide, so it has a small footprint. The articulated loader design gives operators the agility they need to maneuver in close quarters, such as small yards or narrow pathways, while the turf tires provide minimal turf disruption when making turns.

Built with operator comfort and safety in mind, the 1800AWL has a low-profile suspension seat in the ROPS/FOPS-certified cab. The open-cab design provides a clear view of the worksite in all directions, and easy-to-use controls make these machines simple for anyone to operate.
