Simple and durable design, outstanding pulling force
The design is simple and durable. It is easy to control due to good geometry, and visibility to the boom tip is very good with a boom light under the extension. Thanks to the outstanding extension pulling force, productivity is improved.
Well protected hose routing
The main boom and Y-link hose routings are well protected and the hoses last long due to better routing. There are no external hose loops so the boom is easier to guide between trees in thinning and it is also easier to move the grapple between the bunks to the load space.
The extension will be available in the autumn 2022 and the production will start in the winter 2022-2023.
There are no holes, brackets or other accessories at the front of the jib boom which would weaken the boom or would be prone to impact damage. Hoses and cables are covered by the boom structure and the hose routing between the main and jib boom and inside the extension pack have been redesigned.
XI jib booms equipped with a hidden hose extension will be available for CF7 and CF7S loaders of the mid-size forwarders. Maximum reach of the boom is 10 m. The jib booms for older CF7 and CF7S loaders can also be replaced with the new XI jib boom. A strong Indexator GV12-2S rotator will be available as an option with XI jib booms.
The jib boom has been reinforced and the hidden hose extension is stronger than before. An even stronger Power+ extension is also available for CF7S. Thanks to the redesigned hose routing, the hoses last longer and it is easier to change them. The boom can be lowered straight over the load during transport.
The ratio between lifting and jib in/out is more balanced making trajectories and operation of the boom smoother thus improving productivity. With IBC, the XI jib boom can be equipped with a work light under the boom improving visibility to the boom tip.
