Texas-based importer and distributor Miniloaders. com (formerly Compactgiant) recently started dis- tribution of a new small loader brand. The compact, articulating wheel loaders are built by Belgian manu- facturer Knikmops. This manufacturer is well known in western Europe for its paving and landscaping ma- chinery. Miniloaders.com will sell the KM100 series built by Knikmops, which is a 25-hp Kubota powered loader using articulated steering. The loaders are similar to other brands being introduced in the United States such as Avant Tecno. Compact wheel loaders have seen an increasing popularity since the early 2010s, primarily in the green industry where they are want- ed because of their turf-friendly steering. Miniloaders.com also announced branding of the KM100-series as "Intrepid," which will come in two variants: a standard boom Intrepid KM100 and the Intrepid KM100 Tele, which features a telescoping boom. Company manager Chris Sleurink said: "We will sell our Intrepid loaders in the green industry primarily. Landscapers and arborists value the articu- lated steering, high lift capacity and low maintenance costs the Intrepids offer compared to skid steers." 12 Compact Equipment SEPTEMBER 2018 MINILOADERS.COM INTRODUCES BELGIAN ARTICULATING LOADERS TO THE UNITED STATES These loaders are similar to a super small wheel loader or a bigger, sit-on compact tool carrier.
