Barko “B” Series Merchandising Loaders Deliver Service and Safety Enhancements
Barko’s B-Series merchandising loader product line has been updated to offer several new service and safety features. Known for rugged components and durable construction to withstand the rigors of forestry jobs, the loaders deliver high-capacity performance for various log handling applications, including sorting, stacking, pull-through delimbing and loading.
New enhancements to provide easier and safer machine serviceability on the B-Series loaders include relocated fuel filters, simplified electrical accessibility and component replacement, and better wire protection and routing. Additionally, a more robust hydraulic cylinder design adds durability.
All B-Series loaders feature a pilot-operated hydraulic control system, in conjunction with IQAN electronic controls, to provide a more natural feel for the operator. The system can be configured as necessary, and maintenance can be performed simply without a specialist. To conserve fuel, Barko’s efficient load sensing hydraulic system delivers power only when needed. Load sensing valves and pump deliver excellent metering by matching pressure and flow.
Each loader is powered by a 173-horsepower Cummins Tier 4 Final diesel engine. Maximum lift capacities range from 38,820 pounds for the 595B model to 22,820 pounds for the 295B. The loaders’ wider, all-welded boom construction has a fabricated box type design that includes sweeping curves for added strength and increased fatigue resistance. Standard boom length is 32 feet for the 495B and 595B, and 30 feet for the 295B.
