New Holland Construction is celebrating the 35th anniversary of the company's first skid steer loader, the New Holland L35, which was introduced in 1972.

"Thirty-five years ago, New Holland introduced the L35 skid steer loader--the first skid steer loader in the construction industry with ROPS and a vertical parallel lift boom system," said Terry Sheehan, vice president, New Holland Construction. "The L35 skid steer loader exhibited the same stability, low center of gravity and large load capacity-to-equipment weight ratio which New Holland Construction skid steer loaders still maintain today.

"I'm proud to say that the 220,000th New Holland Construction skid steer loader will roll off our production line in 2007," Sheehan added.

Combining incredible stability with the superior reach of the Super Boom vertical lift linkage, New Holland Construction skid steer loaders provide more lift capacity per pound of total machine weight to move bigger loads, increasing productivity and improving the customer's bottom line.

One of the most visible changes between the L35 skid steer loader and today's line of skid steer loaders is the cab and operator's environment. A new deluxe cab has been designed for the Super Boom skid steer loaders (models L150 through L190) and compact track loaders (models C175, C185 and C190). The deluxe cab features increased space, visibility, operator comfort and ease of operation for greater worksite efficiency.

Earlier this year, the L175 skid steer loader was introduced in honor of the 35th anniversary, which fits the fastest growing 2,000 pound SAE-rated load capacity category. The L175 features a New Holland turbocharged engine rated at 60 gross horsepower and has a bucket breakout force of 4,300 pounds and an operating weight of 6,230 pounds.

A special custom black and silver 35th Anniversary skid steer loader model will be on display at numerous 2007 trade shows and exhibits in North America.
