With immediate effect Schäffer offers new models in the series of loaders with an operating weight between 2 and 3 t. The loaders 3345, 3350 and 3360 differ in weight, equipment and especially in engine power. This is marked by the two last numbers of the model designation and is therefore between 33 kW (45 HP) and 44 kW (60 HP). The diesel engines of Kubota are of course conform to the European exhaust emission standard 3a.
The newly constructed engine bonnet offers a better isolation of the sound. The modern design of the new rear end underlines Schäffer's claim to build extremely dynamic and ergonomic loaders. The low engine bonnet doesn't restrict the view backwards. Due to the reduced number of revolutions per minute, a bigger hydrostat can be applied. This transforms the force of the engine into much higher thrust forces via the original Schäffer axles. The 20 km/h gear switchable under full load is standard for all loaders of the 3300s series. The extended wheelbase improves the tip-over loads.
All articulated joints of Schäffer are fully maintenance-free. The conic clamping of the joint is new. The strength of the connection improved once again. Due to the high angles of articulation the loaders become extremely flexible and mobile.
The new driver’s platform offers more room for the operater, climbing up has become easier due to additional grab handles. The new steering columns make an adjustment of the inclination possible and at a glance you can see all important information. In addition to the optical indicators an acoustic warning signal is also available, if necessary.
