EVOLUTION SM

A NEW STANDARD OF TOUGHNESS
UNBEATABLE STRENGTH. INCREDIBLE RESULTS.

The EVOLUTION brings a level of toughness and efficiency like you have never seen. This loader is a heavy duty alternative to our OPTIMAX 950, designed for customers in need of increased lift at a distance. With an additional 25-50 hp and 5-9 ft of standard reach, the EVOLUTION is able to achieve incredible lift capacity while offering the same cost savings you get from the OPTIMAX. Thanks to its compact design and four available configurations, there is literally no limit to the variety of applications or environments this loader will thrive in. Equipped with a load sensing control valve, hydraulic accumulator and the industry’s most spacious cab, the EVOLUTION gives you everything you need to perform your best.

Green machine

The EVOLUTION offers incredible cost savings. The 100 hp high efficiency electric engine of the EVOLUTION uses roughly 15% of the energy required to run a similar sized diesel loader. Imagine what an 85% reduction in operating cost could do for your bottom line.

Power Lifter

The EVOLUTION packs a punch. What truly sets it apart from its smaller sibling is the ability to lift incredible amounts a significant distance from the loader. This feature makes it possible to remain stationary while achieving the same level of efficiency as a wheeled loader or tracked loader.

Intelligent Load sensing

The operational efficiency of the EVOLUTION gets another boost from the industry’s most advanced and innovative load sensing system. Our load sensing system ensures that you have just the right amount of power you need at all times. No more. No less.

An Operator's Dream

The operator station of the EVOLUTION is a wonderful place to spend the day. Mounted on anti-vibration supports, and available with heating, a/c and a fully pressurized cab, your heavy equipment operators will be comfortable in even the most extreme environments. Please see specs for a complete list of available features.

A configuration for every job

The EVOLUTION is available in 4 different configurations. The power unit and the operators station can be installed remotely or directly onto the loader platform. This versatility allows for easy installation into any application or environment.
