New Holland Construction to expand into small articulated loaders

The US market will see five new small articulated loader models added to the line-up in 2024

New Holland Construction has announced that it will be diversifying its product portfolio and adding a new equipment category: small articulated loaders. This new line consists of five small articulated loader models: the ML12, ML12T, ML15, ML22X and ML23.

New Holland Construction says the new models have been designed for a variety of landscaping and light construction jobs, including snow and debris removal on pavements and in backyards, contract tree care projects such as hauling landscaping materials and removing fallen trees, maintenance of landscaped areas and work on jobsites with sensitive surfaces.

“These new small articulated loaders are the embodiment of New Holland Construction’s commitment to innovation and excellence,” New Holland Construction North America product manager Daniel Kakareka says.

“They’re designed to empower our customers to accomplish more in confined spaces, with increased productivity and precision. Truly, refining the way we approach landscaping and light construction tasks.”

ML12 small articulated loader

The ML12 model has a lifting capacity of 2,425 pounds (1.1 tonnes), a tipping load capacity of 2,205 pounds (one tonne) and lifting height of 85.4 inches (2.2m). The 25-horsepower (18.6kW) machine has a 1.1-tonne operating weight, allowing for minimal ground disturbance when turning or hauling on soft ground like turf. With a narrow width the ML12 model is suitable for landscapers focused on clearing pavement or fenced-in areas with limited space. Other key features of the ML12 model includes an electro-hydraulic controlled differential, hydrostatic 4-wheel drive, standard lift path, CII mechanical attachment coupler and more.

ML12T telescopic reach small articulated loader

With the same horsepower and width as the ML12 model, the ML12T model has a telescopic reach arm loader and lifting height of 111 inches. This extended lift allows operators to load and unload materials from large trucks, while the extended reach provides more flexibility in dumping, leveling and grading tasks. The 111-inch (282cm) lift height, multiple tipping load paths of up to 1,650 pounds (748kg) – depending on loader position – and 2,646-pound (1.2-tonne) operating weight works well in light construction scenarios such as moving light debris and pallets.

ML15 small articulated loader

Displaying a 3,086-pound (1.4-tonne) lifting capacity and 3,307-pound (1.5-tonne) tipping load, the ML15 small articulated loader model has the ability to carry heavier materials than smaller models, including steel, lumber and concrete items. The machine fits into a variety of landscaping jobs to remove fallen trees and haul gardening materials. The ML15 has a 26hp (19.4kW) engine and and 3,472-pound (1.6-tonne) operating weight.

ML22X small articulated loader

The ML22X model is New Holland Construction’s first electric-powered small articulated loader. When fully charged, the 24.9kW lithium-ion battery powers the machine for five to six hours, depending on the task. Multiple charging options are available. The on-board charger fully charges the battery in approximately 8.7 hours, while the fast-charge connector provides a full charge in less than two hours. The ML22X has a lifting capacity of 4,850 pounds (2.2 tonnes), a tipping load of 4,528 pounds (two tonnes) and a lifting height of 96.5 inches (245cm).

ML23 small articulated loader

The fifth model – ML23 – also has a 96.5-inch (245cm) lifting height but a larger 4,982-pound (2.3-tonne) tipping load and 4,850-pound (2.2-tonne) lifting capacity. With a 26hp engine, the ML23 can travel at a max speed of 12.4 mph (20km/h), the fastest of all the New Holland Construction small articulated loader models.
