Construction Equipment Guide

LiuGong’s 385A midsize production class skid steer loader is a multipurpose machine for construction site work and powering numerous skid steer attachments. LiuGong’s 365A compact skid steer is a versatile loader and tool carrier suitable for landscaping work and industrial lift and place applications.

The 82.6-hp (61.5 kW) 385A skid steer is the largest in LiuGong’s loader lineup. A turbo charged Tier IV interim Yanmar engine powers the 385A skid steer, making it well-suited for transporting heavy materials, relocating soil and demolition work. LiuGong’s 365A compact loader also is featured in the company’s skid steer line, featuring a 67.3 hp (50 kW) water-cooled 4-stroke Yanmar engine. Both the 385A and 365A skid steers have hydrostatic transmissions and offer travel speeds of up to 7.6 mph (12 kmh) for quick job site mobility.

LiuGong’s 365A and 385A skid steer loaders have max dump heights ranging from 7 ft. 4 in. to 8 ft. (2.2 to 2.4 m), featuring a radial lift path designed for dumping material into truck beds or over retaining walls. The standard level-lift function on both loaders provides stability to the 385A and 365A while transporting palettes of supplies, or loose materials.

The 385A has a rated load of 2,300 lbs. (1,043 kg) and static tipping weight of 4,600 lbs. (2,086 kg) and the 365A has a rated load of 1,750 lbs. (794 kg) and static tipping weight of 3,500 lbs. (1,587 kg). Breakout forces of up to 5,900 lbs. allow the loaders to easily dig into mounds of heavy material. The 365A’s cycle time is 8.7 seconds, according to LiuGong.

Both LiuGong skid steer models offer 3,000 psi of hydraulic pressure to power a variety of attachments and an auxiliary high flow valve is available for work tools that require additional power with switchable flows from 21 to 31 gpm (79 to 117 Lpm). LiuGong’s 385A loader comes with a standard .65 cu. yd., 72 in. (.5 cu m, 183 cm) wide general purpose straight edge bucket and the 365A includes a .52 cu. yd., 64 in. (.4 cu m, 162 cm) wide general purpose straight edge bucket.

LiuGong’s 385A and 365A skid steers’ quick coupler fit all aftermarket attachments designed for skid steer loaders, including a 4-in-1 bucket, rock bucket, scrap bucket, hydraulic hammer, cold planer, lift boom, auger, pick-up sweeper and bale spear, among others.

LiuGong’s 385A and 365A operator station includes a ROPS/FOPS deluxe enclosed cab with climate controlled air-conditioning. Both loaders feature AM/FM radios, front window safety interlock, backup alarms and rotating beacons. Work functions are controlled with the standard dual mechanical operating lever with the familiar H-pattern. Operators in the 385A and 365A are protected by LiuGong’s control safety interlock system that disables operations when the operator is not actively running the skid steer loader.
