New Holland North America.

New Holland's skid-steer loaders provide the operator more comfort for continuous operation with their large cab and suspension seat. Over 70 attachments are offered through the Loadstar Program. A multi-function control handle for the LS160, 170, 180 and 190 allow the operator to control the attachment from the fingertips and incorporates machine functions such as a two-speed option, turn signals and horn functions. For added versatility, a Bradco Backhoe can be attached with a quick coupler to adapt a Frost Ripper Tooth, 300 IPC hydraulic hammer and buckets. Small and medium contractors can realize cost savings with Hollands' skid-steer loaders that can become a wheel loader, excavator, dozer and motorgrader all in one. The 2,555 pounds operating load capacity of the LS180 allows the operator to move various types of material as the LS190 with an operating capacity of 2,842 pounds provides a higher operating load range for maximum productivity. In addition, the Superboom attachment allows the operator to lift, dig, load and retrieve material from a 45 degree down angle, and carry materials up vertically allowing the center of gravity to be held close to the machine.
