Barko’s new B-Series trailer/truck-mounted loaders are easier to service


Barko says its new truck/trailer-mounted B Series merchandising loaders are easier to service and offer better durability and protection for wiring.

The new 295B, 495B and 595B are powered by a 173-horsepower Cummins Tier 4 Final engine. Max lift capacities are 22,820 pounds on the 295B, 28,720 pounds on the 495B and 38,820 pounds on the 595B. Standard boom length is 30 feet on the 295B and 32 feet for both the 495B and 595B.

For easier maintenance, Barko has relocated the fuel filters, made access to the electrical easier and has redone the routing of wires to provide better protection. The company has also boosted durability of the hydraulic cylinder with a new design.

The B-Series loaders feature a pilot-operated hydraulic control system with IQAN electronic controls. The load-sensing hydraulic system conserves fuel by delivering power only when needed.

Each loader’s rotary manifold allows for 360-degree continuous boom rotation and provides electrical and hydraulic power to the lower frame.
