Product Brochure

Franklin Equipment Company builds utility tractors to meet the specific requirements of the attachent and the customer.  We work with the Dealer, the customer and the attachment manufacturer to determine these requirements.  We consider the attachment itself for size, weight, carring capacity (if requires), along with the customer's job requirements including terrain and flotation.  These requirements help determine the horsepower and hydraulics necessary.

Franklin's engineering staff works with these considerations and uses axle, tire, horsepower, oscillation and wheelbase options to match the tractor to the attachment and the customer's needs.  Other options such as winches, joystick steering, transmissions, bogie axles, reverse operator contorls and oscillation locks provide the customer with the latitude to have a utility tractor designed for his specific application.
