It Costs Less Than a Front End Loader
The price of an Ag Krane starts at $3,070 (compared to a front-end loader which can cost up to $23,000). Our biggest Ag Krane can handle the biggest 4 wheel drive tractor made. Many large aftermarket loaders are "not recommended" for front wheel assist tractors over 180 H.P. and are not even available for large 4 wheel drive tractors. Also, the mechanical self-leveling feature comes standard with 3 Ag Krane models. (That's an extra $1,500 - $2,500 with front end loaders.)
The Ag Krane has a reach of 6' for the MSL-072s, 8' for the MSL-096HD and 10' for the 120HDXL Models. Front end loaders have a reach of 2' to 4'. (Many front end loader tractors sustain front end damage due to lack of reach.)
The Ag Krane can lift 4,000lbs. on the forks and 7,000 to 19,000lbs. on the lift lugs. (Even the biggest loaders top out at 6,000lbs.)
The Ag Krane can be attached to any three point hitch tractor. You can use your Ag Krane on your 75 H.P. in the morning and your 275 H.P. tractor in the afternoon. (A front end loader can only be attached to the tractor it was designed for.)
Time Saving Smart Design
The Ag Krane can be attached in 2 mintues and removed in 1, (even quick attach loaders take 10 - 20 minutes to hook up). that's convenience. with a front end loader your view is blocked by the nose of the tractor, forcing you to work blind and dangerous. With the Ag Krane you can clearly see lifted hay, pallets or equipment. Also, the Ag Krane lifts from the strongest part of your tractor - the rear axle - to avoid expensive repairs from bent or broken front axles. That's Smart Design.
