But GiANT isn’t just interested in providing a pound-for-pound, exceptionally strong loader. GiANT has spent a lot of time and resources on developing equipment that is surface friendly and won’t tear up ground or turf while in operation. By implementing articulated steering and an oscillating frame, GiANT has developed an extremely strong and nimble machine.
Additionally, with multiple tire and skid options on select loaders, you can customize your machine specifically with your business in mind.
Compatible Attachments with GiANT Loaders
All GiANT Loaders come standard with a universal attachment plate so that you can use your favorite attachments with your GiANT loader. GiANT has a “non-proprietary” attachment approach that doesn’t lock you into using GiANT proprietary equipment. This is immediately beneficial to the user because it allows complete control over what attachment each user likes best.
