Seven skid steer loaders comprise the new 200 Series and feature the patented vertical lift Super Boom design, delivering best-in-class forward dump height and reach. The 53-degree dump angle on the 200 Series skid steer loaders is also best in class. This lets operators empty the bucket faster, increasing cycle times and productivity. The new self-leveling bucket feature on the five models with the Super Boom design allows attachments to maintain the preset location throughout the lift cycle. For long load and carry operations, the optional Glide Ride feature with the Super Boom design ensures a smooth ride over the roughest job site. These five models are rated from 57-84 hp. New Holland also introduced two compact models, the L213 and L215. Each features a radial lift design, providing excellent digging performance. newholland.com/200 series
