OPTIMAX SM

THE ULTIMATE MULTITASKER
ENDLESS OPTIONS. INFINITE POSSIBILITIES.

The OPTIMAX Stationary Mount Loader truly pushes the boundaries of what was once thought possible of a mid-weight knuckle boom loader. In addition to Rotobec’s tough handling pedigree that comes standard in all of our loaders, we have engineered the OPTIMAX to be adaptable to every conceivable application and environment. The list of available options is incredibly extensive, making it without a doubt the most versatile loader of its kind. This highly efficient powerhouse offers a modern alternative to traditional diesel powered loaders that will significantly reduce your carbon footprint and save you thousands in annual operating costs.

Green Machine

The OPTIMAX Stationary Mount Knuckleboom Loader will not only save you thousands each year in operating expenses, it will also help you save the world. On average, an electric engine will emit 40%-50% less greenhouse gases than a comparable diesel engine. The electric engine can also help significantly reduce both noise and air pollution at your job site.

Operator's Dream

The cab of the OPTIMAX is the largest available in its class. An ergonomic seat and optional heating and A/C offers a comfortable place for your heavy equipment operator to spend their day. A pressurized cab can be added for extreme working environments. Please see specs for a complete list of available features.

A configuration for every job

The OPTIMAX is available in four 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.

  • SM-X: Power unit on loader/Operator on loader
  • SM-R: Power unit remote/Operator remote
  • SM-W: Power unit on loader/Operator remote – shown on the left
  • SM-H: Power unit remote/Operator on loader

 

Less walking, more working

Walking a machine to and from the fuel depot is an expensive process that can cost you hundreds of hours each year in production downtime. In many applications, a stationary mount loader will allow you to accomplish the same task as a tracked loader without the need for costly trips for fuel.
