Brisbane Mini expands Hercules wheel loader range
The latest addition to the heavy-duty range of Hercules wheel loaders builds upon over three decades of engineering experience that has been crafted to suit Australia’s demanding earthmoving conditions.
Distributed throughout Australia by the team at Brisbane Mini Excavators Sales (BMES), the range of loaders can tackle a wide range of jobs on the farm.
The heavy-duty range – known as the HD Series – is built using quality materials and assembled locally with both the operator and owner in mind.
The range begins with the 11-tonne HD636 model, moving up to the 17-tonne HD656 and 21-tonne HD668 – with the newest addition to the BMES yard – the 25-tonne HD676 – also becoming its largest on offer.
Designed for both agricultural and earthmoving use, the HD Series has earned a reputation as an all-rounder, with the loaders excelling in demanding applications, BMES sales executive Steven Ragenovich says.
“The HD Series loaders are built for heavy-duty applications such as major stick raking, dam clearing and restoration, quarry work, bulk handling and all-round agricultural use such as spreading fertiliser and on cattle properties,” Ragenovich says.
“Hercules has been building and developing this particular series of loaders for 30 years.”
In addition to the striking yellow paint job sported by each model of the HD Series, there’s plenty of features on the machines that equip them to handle larger jobs in farming.
With a maximum dumping height that ranges from 2.87m on the smaller HD636 model through to well above 3m on the HD676, operators can move material such as soil and construction waste with ease.
A hydraulic quick hitch makes changing between the plethora of attachments offered by BMES easy, meaning the HD Series is a true all-purpose machine.
Ragenovich describes the machines as a ‘tool handler’ that can be equipped with a jib, heavy duty pallet forks, rear rippers, stick rakes and rock buckets.
For the operator, the ROPS/FOPS-certified cab provides a heightened level of safety, while the cab itself features a fully integrated high efficiency air-conditioning and heating system that lets the operator work in comfort.
The HD Series loaders are equipped with a heavy-duty drive train and are powered by highly efficient Caterpillar-nominated engines.
Transmission guards, a high-density dust air filtration system manufactured by Mann+Hummell and quality armoured tyres are key features.
Bucket capacities on the loaders range from 2.5 cubic metres on the HD636 through to 7 cubic metres on the larger HD676, meaning operators can move more and do more in less time.
An advanced cooling system is available as standard, but this can also be further upgraded to a higher ambience package for regions prone to extreme heat.
With a two-year/2,000-hour warranty on parts and labour and a three-year/4,000-hour warranty on the engine that is backed up by BMES’ aftersales support, spare parts and technical advice, Ragenovich says the loaders are the ideal machine for any farm around Australia.
“Our customers have been very happy with what they are getting in a quality build loader for a very competitive price point,” he says.
“The customers also appreciate our support after the sale with technical advice, supplied filters and parts – which we carry the full range of – and an experienced dedicated parts department.”
BMES operates out of Yatala in Queensland but services Hercules vehicles across Australia. The business has been around for 34 years, with a team of 20 staff combining their experience in a dedicated sales, parts and technical department.
“We’ve been here for over 30 years – we’re a business with longevity, experience and reliability,” Ragenovich says.
“Our customers are far and wide and they rely on us for quick, quick response time for technical advice, servicing and delivery of spare parts.”
