A new Fastrac and front-end loader combination were launched at Grassland UK following the announcement of a partnership between Alo UK and JCB.
Richard Foxley, Marketing Manager of JCB explains that the characteristics of the Fastrac 4000 lend itself well to being paired with the market leading Trima loader.
“The machine’s manoeuvrability, four-wheel steer and a window in the roof enables advanced visibility, productivity and precision. It combines speed and horse power with the functionality of a loader attachment.
“This addition to a 160 – 220 horse power tractor is going to be a valuable machine for straw hauliers and vegetable growers in particular,” says Richard.
Richard adds that it’s an exciting partnership for JCB and he’s looking forward to working with world renowned front loader manufacturers, Alo.
Working closely with JCB throughout the project, Graham Gould, Technical Support Manager for Alo UK says that he considers there to be great sales potential , not only in the UK but across the globe.
He says that the new Fastrac 4000 chassis is pre-drilled to take Alo brackets. “The Fastrac 4000 with the Trima loader attached isn’t commercially available until the end of June, but that didn’t stop two orders being placed at Grassland UK.” says Graham, as he acknowledges that interest in the new model with the loader attachment is very encouraging.
“The loader is also fitted with a LCS ElectroDrive control system, this is the highest specification control system we have available.
“It’s a new global opportunity for Alo, in a new market, and we’re thrilled to be working with JCB,” adds Graham.
