Features & Benefits

Telescopic boom

The telescopic boom on the ATX960 extends 49.5 in (125.7 cm) for loading materials to a dump height of 126 in (320.04 cm) in hinge pin height. The telescopic boom can also aid in dumping material over the backside of a retaining wall or grabbing material over an obstruction.

Lift-capacity-to-weight ratio

The ATX960 has a rated operating capacity of 3,285 lb (1,490 kg) with 970-lb (440-kg) back weights while having a standard weight of 4,720 lb (2,140 kg). This lift-capacity-to-weight ratio allows contractors to utilize a lighter machine while still being able to carry heavy materials on the jobsite.

Compact size

With narrow tires, the ATX960 is 52-in (132-cm) wide, while the wider tires make the machine 59-in (150-cm) wide. Both configurations allow the ATX960 to fit through many standard gates for backyard access. The overall length of the ATX960 is 126 in (320 cm).

Full-sized attachment plate

The full-sized attachment plate on the ATX960 is compatible with full-sized articulated loader attachments. The ATX960 can be fitted with various authorized attachments to meet the jobsite need, may that be for snow removal, landscaping, logging and tree care work, or various other applications.

Operator comfort

The adjustable seat and operator station layout allow operators to work comfortably for a full day. Options like a heated seat, enclosed and heated cab, and optional air conditioning add more comfort for year-round use to the ATX960.

Customized options

The ATX960 has a wide variety of options to fit the needs of customers and the demands of various jobsites. Work lights and beacon lights can aid with darker working conditions. There are several tire and tread options as well to meet the turf interaction desires of contractors. Another option on the ATX960 is an automatic hydraulic locking attachment plate, which attaches and releases non-auxiliary hydraulic attachments without the need for the operator to leave the cab.
