Fermecs Turbo-charged backhoe

FERMEC has launched a turbo-charged version of its MF750 backhoe loader, aimed especially at the plant hire market.

The MF760 is fitted with a 67 kW turbocharged Perkins diesel linked with a four-speed synchromesh Powershuttle 2 transmission.

The new machine has a 120 litre fuel tank (22 per cent larger than the MF750).

The larger fuel tank will mean more work on a tank of fuel, the new engine will result in reduced operating costs and the new transmission will mean faster but safer roading, said marketing director Ian Webb.
