In June 2019, I ordered the Universal ROBUST loader with a quick-detachment from a tractor, but without quick-detachment of operating components, with a 0.6 m3 jaw bucket and a set of 3-way crane.
I installed the loader on the Belarus-82.1 tractor by myself. All the details came up, no questions arose, all the components were sealed in a SPTA in a box.
I do all the work with a loader at the request of the people, I perform moonlighting: loading and unloading soil, sand, manure and granite crushed stone, which is heavier in density than usual, I also loaded piles, during which the rear wheels lifted. The loader copes with loading well, I really like the speed of lifting, lowering and turning the bucket, it allows KamAZ or MAZ loading in short order.
I have performed the work on planning the site, removing the soil – it turns out very well. I also liked that when raising or lowering the bucket always remains in the position in which it was lifted from the ground. The bucket level gauge came in handy. Now when I work, I don’t even look at the bucket, I keep track of everything with a level gauge. The only thing I would advise is that the pointer at the zero level (i.e. the bucket in the horizon) should be marked, for example, with red color using some indelible material, so that we tractor drivers can see it!
I removed the loader from the tractor twice, I liked it, I just pulled a stud on each side, tipped the jacks (by the way, there are big hooks now, I liked it, it’s reliable!), then lifted it over the subframes and drove off.
I liked the lift height, it is enough and there’s even a margin left; I performed loading of such machines as KamAZ, MAZ and Scania.
For those who are considering this loader with a jaw bucket, I recommend purchasing a volume of 0.6 m3, as I did. It is quite enough; I think a larger volume is not needed since it can overload the front axle.
The blade on the jaw bucket is weak, it starts to grind, it is necessary to use better material or material with some kind of hardening!
The equipment is reliable and we hope that it will help us in various works further. I wish success to the plant, good health to the team, new solutions and design ideas.
