June 2010 marks the 30th anniversary of the Ramrod mini-skid loader – those walk-behind or ride-on Taskmasters that wield 100s of implements for landscapers and construction pros all over North America. The compact tool carrier category in North America was born in 1980 when the company introduced the Ramrod M230 at a regional farm show, and Ramrod has continued to help define the category in terms of power, versatility and reliability ever since.
Today, Ramrod offers a wider assortment of Taskmaster models with more diverse capabilities than any other manufacturer in the category. The company knows that as useful as mini-skid loaders are, having the right Ramrod for your applications is like having the right tool for the job – other tools might work, but you get more done if it’s the right one. For example, the company offers several of Ramrod models in both four-wheel drive and tracked configurations because every customer is unique and so is every terrain. Ramrod also understands that everyone that needs a mini-skid loader wants it for a different reason, so the company currently have access to more than 70 different attachments, with more attachments being added to the list all the time.
Take the 1150-LKD – the flagship of the Ramrod line. This is the tracked diesel mini-skid loader that all other compact tool carriers are compared to:
Lift Capacity: 1,150 lbs
Full Lift Height: 72 in.
Dump Angle: 85 degrees
The Self-Leveling Ramrod 1150-LKD can lift more weight higher in the air than any other mini-skid on the market today. And with a dump angle that is virtually double, it can empty the bucket faster too. Read more about Ramrod’s growing line of mini-skid loaders at http://www.ramrodequip.com/.
