  • PTO operation: Electric Hydraulic. Independent or Clutch linked.
  • 4WD as standard with easy shift lever.

  • Dual hydraulic pumps: independent power for steering and hydraulic attachments


Check out the very positive third-party review of the Branson F42H on Trade Farm Machinery.

"It is small enough to take on tight work in vineyards, orchards and lifestyle properties yet grunty enough to tackle some of those bigger jobs with a very capable 4-in-1 front end loader."
