Barko Hydraulics 80XL and 80XLE Back of Cab Knuckleboom Loaders offer low installation weight with high payload capacity for a variety of material handling needs. They are ideal for a wide array applications, including logging, tree service and maintenance and storm cleanup.

Powered by the carrying vehicle’s PTO, the loaders feature a robust hydraulic system that provides exceptional functionality. A triple gear pump produces up to 62 gallons per minute, with one section dedicated to the planetary swing drive that allows simultaneous operation of the boom and swing system without losing flow. A rotary manifold allows for 360-degree continuous rotation and provides electrical and hydraulic power to the lower frame. Sectional control type valves come with folding mechanical joysticks.

The 80XL offers a standard 22 foot straight boom and delivers a maximum lift capacity of 9,880 pounds; a 26 foot straight boom is optional. The 80XLE is equipped with a telescoping boom that extends 22-25 feet and provides lift capacity up to 10,450 pounds. The loaders’ wider, all-welded boom construction with fabricated box type design includes sweeping curves to add strength and resist fatigue. Extra large zinc-plated pins and bolts provide added durability in high-stress areas.
