Fans of Matbro rigid chassis tele-handlers will be delighted to find out that now there is a modern substitute for those old yellow loaders. And that is the SYMMEN T350. If we compare the old with new, mainly perceptible changes are found with the new machine’s insignia, which for farm rationales, can border on the ambitious. SYMMEN has decided on for a gray & white color scheme. It will certainly be confronted by the nature of its work, mainly on stock farms. This much aside, the T350 uses a lot of same machinery as the Matbro machines much has distorted. To accommodate a lower main pivot point, chassis and boom geometry has been changed.
