Durability’s Built-In

Your schedule or budget doesn’t have the bandwidth to accommodate unplanned downtime. The ramifications of such a scenario can be costly and frustrating.

This isn’t an issue with your fleet of Oshkosh AeroTech Ranger electric cargo loaders. Ranger loaders are solidly constructed using the best available materials and processes.

Of special note is this cargo loader’s soft-ride suspension – it’s key to keeping the Ranger moving on longer transits across the ramp. The unique car-like front suspension minimizes the stress on components caused by the jolts of cross-ramp travel.

This dedication to toughness and reliability means you’ll experience:

  • Decreased maintenance
  • Quieter, more trouble-free operations
  • Reduced wear and tear
  • Productivity gains due to fewer and shorter usage interruptions

Options & Models

Oshkosh AeroTech has plenty of options and models, so you can get the cargo loader that’s perfect for your needs. We have a suite of models – like our Commander Cargo Loaders (this should be a link to Commander, not Ranger) – to select from, and some models offer options to further customize your loaders. Rest assured that your Oshkosh AeroTech loader is going to check all the boxes!

Options Are Essential

Because a traditional loader might not work for every cargo activity or transfer location, Oshkosh AeroTech Ranger loaders come in three sizes, all equally robust:

  • Standard
  • Wide
  • Universal

Ranger Diesel Version

Designed for maneuverability and mobility, this loader boasts a gentle ride, small footprint, tight turning radius, and peak speed that’s double that of other models. This rugged, nimble, environmentally responsible diesel loader is a workhorse with its 15,500-pound (7,050-kg) capacity.
