With the ESL backhoe design and improved digging power, the Allmand TLB-6235 four-wheel drive compact tractor loader backhoe meets the needs of general construction, landscaping, utility and any other small to mid-size earthmoving applications, according to the manufacturer.

The TLB-6235 features a full-time mechanical four-wheel drive system, offering efficient functionality through a hydrostatic transmission. The addition of four-wheel drive provides increased versatility over two-wheel drive models, allowing operators to work in more adverse conditions.

Powered by a 35-hp (26 kW), liquid-cooled Isuzu diesel engine, the TLB-6235 is driven by an axial piston motor capable of running at higher pressures and RPMs. The TLB-6235 houses a 65-hp (48 kW) rated servo-controlled hydrostatic transmission. The servo control system provides positive neutral and infinite control of the machine, as well as reduced pedal effort in either forward or reverse travel mode. Additionally, the transmission case is constructed from cast iron to minimize noise.

Allmand’s ESL (Extended Service Life) backhoe design features oversized pins with composite bearings and urethane lip seals in all working joints. This design reduces friction and extends service intervals by eliminating metal-to-metal contact, retaining grease and keeping debris out. For added safety, the TLB-6235 backhoe features Allmand’s heavy-duty boom lock, which can be engaged or disengaged from the operator’s seat.

With a 6,000-lb. (2,722 kg) bucket digging force, the TLB-6235’s industrial class backhoe reaches up to a 9-ft. 10-in. (3 m) digging depth, and a dual cylinder 180-degree hydraulic cushioned swing allows precise work in tight areas, while joystick controls provide simple, smooth operation. The TLB-6235 loader features an extended reach loader enabling the .5-cu. yd. (.4 cu m) loader bucket to dump loads where other compact tractors cannot reach.

A load sensing hydraulic steering system requires hydraulic flow only when the operator turns the steering wheel. This system increases productivity and enhances performance by providing the maximum available hydraulic power to the backhoe, loader or attachment. To extend the life of hydraulic components, the TLB-6235 features a high-capacity hydraulic oil cooler.

A planetary rear axle assembly provides added strength, enabling the unit to handle severe terrain and extending life expectancy. In addition, a planetary axle design produces power to all wheels with less input torque to the ring and pinion, reducing loads on components.

Other TLB-6235 features include: heavy-duty front bumper, skid plates, rounded hood, float control on the front-end loader, easily-accessible service ports on backhoes, and high flotation, low ground pressure tires.

The TLB-6235’ s operator area minimizes fatigue through ergonomic controls and provides a view of both the loader and backhoe work areas. Standard four-post ROPS and retractable seat belts are certified for both driving and backhoe positions.
