Since 1956, Prentice knuckleboom loaders have built a legacy by listening to customers and the Weiler built Prentice 2124 continues that history of in woods loading, storm cleanup, railroad use, and municipality applications.  The strong A-frame design can be mounted behind the cab, on the back of the chassis or center trailer mounted.  Multiple grapple options are available from the factory with the loader to match many specific applications.  The Weiler dealer network provides great service for the Prentice 2124 no matter where the job may be located.


The Prentice 2124 A-frame design is based on a clean, simple pedestal, fabricated from high strength steel. Heat treated, high alloy steel pins and aluminum-bronze pivot bushings maximize durability. Telescopic A-frame stabilizers with individual controls provide a strong footing in uneven terrain.


The 3200 psi hydraulic system maximizes lift capacity and multi-functioning of the boom and grapple. The joystick-controlled valves and quick swing system provide a smooth, consistent, and controlled response.


An 8 circuit electrical collector provides electrical power for setting stabilizers while the optional 12 and 14 circuit collectors offer greater flexibility. Work light packages for stick boom and operator platform are optional. Optional telebooms feature thumb-switch proportional controls.


Operator platform features a large adjustable seat with padded armrests. Access ladders and hand grabs are positioned for maintaining “three point” contact. A front operator protection guard is standard.


Two A-frame height options allow for mountings in different applications and industries. Multiple grapple offerings include pulpwood, by-pass log and solid waste grapples. Several options developed over 60+ years provide maximum versatility.


Since 1956, Prentice knuckleboom loaders have built a legacy by listening to customers. Weiler Forestry continues to build on the 2124 which is fast, strong, light weight, and one of the smoothest loaders in the market.
