Allmand debuts its first four-wheel-drive backhoe

The TLB-6235 is Allmand’s first compact tractor loader backhoe with four-wheel drive. A 35-horsepower, liquid-cooled Isuzu diesel engine powers the TLB-6235, and the machine’s axial piston motor is capable of running at high pressures and rpms, increasing efficiency.

The full-time mechanical four-wheel-drive system functions through a hydrostatic transmission, which features a servo-control system that provides positive, neutral and infinite control of the machine as well as reduced pedal effort in forward or reverse travel mode. The transmission case is constructed of cast iron to minimize noise. Allmand’s Extended Service Life backhoe design features oversized pins with composite bearings and urethane lip seals in all working joints.

Allmand says the design reduces friction and extends service intervals by eliminating metal-to-metal contact, retaining grease and keeping out debris. The TLB-6235 has a 6,000-pound bucket digging force, a 9-foot-10-inch dig depth and a dual-cylinder, 180-degree hydraulic cushioned swing.
