Agri­son’s TX936S wheel loader is a real game-changer for those look­ing for af­ford­able power.

Melbourne’s Agri­son is a sec­ond-gen­er­a­tion fam­ily-owned busi­ness that has made a name for it­self as a ma­jor sup­plier of value-for-money con­struc­tion and agri­cul­tural ma­chin­ery.

The com­pany op­er­ates un­der the motto ‘best qual­ity and value with­out com­pro­mise’ and sources high-qual­ity ma­chin­ery through its part­ner­ship with a Chi­nese com­pany which is fully com­pli­ant with the In­ter­na­tional Stan­dard ISO9001:2008.

Agri­son says that this busi­ness model, sourc­ing no-non­sense, high-qual­ity ma­chin­ery from over­seas and sell­ing di­rect to the cus­tomer for a quar­ter of the price of the big names, has seen the group be­come one of Aus­tralia’s most recog­nised ma­chin­ery brands, both here and also abroad.

Af­ter start­ing out small, the Agri­son busi­ness con­tin­ued to grow and in 2012 the com­pany re­lo­cated to its cur­rent 2ha premises in Camp­bell­field in Melbourne’s north­ern sub­urbs. The com­pany says the new HQ has be­come a ‘one-stop-shop’ and is one of the largest closed-off re­tail showrooms in Aus­tralia, with a fully stocked spare parts di­vi­sion and ex­ten­sive on-site af­ter-sales ser­vice.

Sell­ing di­rect to cus­tomers cuts out a lot of mid­dle-men, and helps the group keep prices down. Nowhere is this ex­em­pli­fied more than in Agri­son’s TX936S wheel loader, which re­tails brand new for just $61,990.

“This is a big, heavy-duty wheel loader,” Agri­son’s Ray Yay­in­tas says. “It mea­sures 7.9m in length with the bucket down, 3.25m high and has 20.5-25 tyres.

“The TX936S is built for a va­ri­ety of ap­pli­ca­tions in­clud­ing con­struc­tion, min­ing and land-clear­ing,” he adds.

The 13-tonne op­er­at­ing weight TX936S is no slouch. The big loader is pow­ered by a 150hp 6-cylin­der Cum­mins 6BT5.9-C150 diesel engine ca­pa­ble of push­ing out up to 580Nm of torque, which kicks in at around 1500rpm.

Easy-to-use sin­gle-lever hy­draulic con­trols de­liver 2,750psi work­ing pres­sure to the at­tach­ment, and as a re­sult the TX936S has a lift ca­pac­ity of 4 tonnes. The TX936S also has a fully pow­ered ‘third func­tion valve’ which in­creases the ma­chine’s ver­sa­til­ity.

The loader fea­tures an XCMG Pow­erShift trans­mis­sion with four-speed for­ward (max travel speed 35km/h) and two-speed re­verse gears (max speed 26km/h).

In­side the mod­ern, spa­cious cab is a fully ad­justable sus­pen­sion seat. The ROPS cabin is heated and air-con­di­tioned and has a pil­lar-less wrap-around wind­screen for in­creased vis­i­bil­ity. The TX936S has fully hy­draulic steer­ing us­ing an XT Ea­ton steer­ing or­bi­trol. The TX936S can achieve a steer­ing an­gle of around 38 de­grees.

A 2.4-cu­bic me­tre gen­eral bucket comes stan­dard with TX936S, along with a 4-in-1 bucket and pal­let forks. Im­ple­ments can be swapped out quickly and safely thanks to the TX936S’s hy­draulic quick-hitch. Agri­son has a num­ber of other at­tach­ments avail­able for the load­ers in­clud­ing sieve buck­ets, hy­draulic log grap­ples and grain buck­ets.

Agri­son spe­cialises in ex­ports to coun­tries such as New Zealand, Fiji and Thai­land.
