KM90 mini loader still used after 20 years
Dec 19, 2018 – Today, the Belgian manufacturer of Intrepid mini loaders announced they received the 7th KM (Knikmops) mini loader ever built at the factory. The mini loader was built in 1998 and was delivered for service, still being steadily used after 20 years of work. Knikmops started building these sturdy mini loaders in 1997, when they started producing the KM90. Based on this model, the KM100 (Tele) was introduced later with a slightly heavier Kubota engine. Miniloaders.com now offers the KM100-series to American customers.
KM mini loaders with more than 10.000 hours have been seen before, but the KM90 that arrived this week was a true testament of its durability and reliability. The machines are originally built with paving contractors in mind, where these mini loaders are regularly tested to their limits. They are equipped with quality components such as Kubota, Bosch and Poclain. These components are fitted in a rugged built, all steel frame, with easy maintenance access.
The factory stated further that ‘the machines are produced sustainably for a long life-span, of which this KM90 is proof’.
