Dingle Nurseries, based near Welshpool in Powys, has taken delivery of a pair of Kramer wheeled loaders following two previous pairs of similar machines used by the nursery over the past 12 years.

The nursery, which covers 140ha and was founded in 1968, bought the Kramer 850 models from local dealer Beddoes Compact Plant Sales.

They are used for unloading delivery vehicles, extracting individual root-balled trees from bark chipping beds, handling compost and other general clean-up duties.

The loaders have a rigid frame layout combined with 4-wheel drive and 4-wheel steer systems.

The Kramer 850 is powered by an oil-cooled, 4-cylinder Deutz diesel engine developing 44 kW (60 hp) @ 2400 rpm which drives through a hydrostatic transmission providing a speed range from 0 to 20 kph. The 4500 kg machine has a lift capacity of 2000 kg and a maximum load-over height of 3250 mm.
