Vermeer’s compact articulated loaders are designed to be a highly maneuverable, versatile machine while having the added benefit of low turf disturbance. They also feature a telescopic boom, making them an uncommonly useful job site solution.
ATX loaders, available in three models, can complete various tasks with their multi-tool attachment plate.
The Vermeer ATX530 comes with a 25-hp Kubota D1305 diesel engine. It has a telescopic boom that extends 21.6 inches for loading materials to a dump height of 108.3 inches in hinge pin height.
It has a rated operating capacity (straight) of 933 lbs while having a standard weight of 2,711 lbs with rear weights and without attachments. This lift-capacity-to-weight ratio is designed to allow contractors to use a lighter machine while still being able to carry heavy materials on the job site.
The ATX720 is meant to offer a combination of power, speed and agility, Vermeer said. With a telescopic boom that extends 29.1 inches for loading materials to a dump height of 114 inches in hinge pin height, and a rated operating capacity of 2,155 lbs, this machine is designed to handle a variety of jobs.
Powered by the 25-hp Kubota D1305 Tier 4 Final diesel engine, the ATX720 is 44.5-inches wide with narrow tires, while the wider tires make the machine 50.4-inches wide. The standard tire configuration allows the ATX720 to fit through a standard 4-foot gate.
The largest of the three models, the ATX850 is equipped with a 57-hp Kohler KDI903 diesel engine and has an extended boom reach of
29.1 inches for loading material to a dump height of 117.3 inches.
With narrow tires, this articulated loader is just 42.1 inches wide and can be outfitted with wider tires for better flotation on soft ground.
The ATX850 has a rated operating capacity (straight) of 1,590 lbs while having a standard weight of 4,254 lbs with rear weights and without attachments.
