The PT-2430 Bucketloader with optional backhoe from Power Trac measures just 97 inches long and 54 inches wide, but still cranks out 1,200 pounds of lift capacity and 3,000 pounds of breakout force using a 30-horsepower diesel engine. Dig depth measures 7 feet and the reach extends to 9 feet 6 inches. Four-wheel hydrostatic drive and articulated steering prevents the kind of turf damage that can be caused by skid steering, and the PT-2430 has a ground pressure of just 4 to 5 psi.
