Tobroco-Giant’s new equipment at Bauma

By Belinda Smart26 October 2022

At the Tobroco Giant exhibition stand at Bauma 2022, the company is showcasing its new electric offering, a first glimpse of its new tracked skid steer and its new compaction range.

A forceful presence on the stand is the G2700E, a newly electrified version of the G2700 series wheel loader.

It is part of a series designed to transport heavy loads, such as a complete pallet of paving stones, and is suitable for heavier work due to heavy duty attachments.

“Electric machines are doing very well in our home market of Holland,” Teun Van Dal, Account Manager – Attachments - Tobroco Giant, tells IRN.

“This is because it is now a matter of law, which means that the government has rolled out charging infrastructure for these machines.

“They are also selling well in Germany, the Nordics and increasingly North America. Many are sold to rental companies as well as contractors. We also have dealerships that in turn sell to rental.

Meanwhile, Tobroco-Giant recently announced plans to offer its wheeled skid steer range on tracks - turning it into a compact tracked loader - in 2023. This series, including the SK252D skid steer, is on show on the Bauma stand.

The alteration to the skid steer range was a direct result of customer requests for tracks to enable better stability on uneven terrain. The lineup is also to include all-electric options.

Tobroco’s Bauma stand also features its new range of compaction machines, launched earlier this year following the rebranding of SAMAC vibratory plates and rammers after Tobroco’s acquisition last year of fellow Dutch company ULBO Machinery, which owned the SAMAC brand.

With a selection of machines on display, including two new electric models, the complete 60-strong range includes a roller vibrator, reversible plates in the 180 to 485kg range and eleven single direction plates weighing between 51 and 180kg.

Van Dal told IRN the company was continuing to grow despite economic headwinds, and had recently completed an expanded manufacturing facility for attachments in Hungary – the company has bought a site that is scalable for future expansion, having previously leased its site in Hungary.
