Default Diverto QS100 - a new take on a multi function duck

Stumbled across this machine whilst browsing. Quite an article.

http://www.diverto.com



I can see Druid taking a trip to the Neatherlands to eyeball one in the flesh
How hard would it be to fabricate that unfolding boom Gra?

I wonder if it is a "jack of all trades, master of none" they certainly make some bold claims that it can replace an Excavator, Loader, Tractor and Mower.

No matter, it looks the dogs ******

Saw and had a look round one at Maskin expo last year, really nice very verseitile, ideal for a small builder, small farm/small houlding etc.

Keep looking at it but no matter how much I do, it comes back to the same sad reality that it'd be about as much use in the UK as a Swiss army knife at a paper cutting/scissor competition.

Not quite sure how it replaces a Wheel loader, it's bigger size wise than the equivalent machine in capacity, that's the aim of the game for a small wheel loader to be able to carry lots in a compact package?

As a Excavator/Duck it looks reasonable, however its gotta be a lot more expensive than a standard Duck and it lacks a proper blade/stabilisers for those that want them?

As a Tractor? this is where I will say it does compete with a tractor fitted with a Front Loader, However Merlo did a similar thing with the Multi farmer and they seem few and far between? Cost I expect and the fact that it's never going to compete with a dedicated tractor?

As a Multi Tool? Brilliant! however Bobcat, Hydrema, Merlo, Manitou etc have all made similar attempts at Jack machines before, and I don't see a lot of them About... they seem to end up with councils wow'd by the idea of a machine that can do everything and get 100% utilisation but then realise it can't cut grass as often as the dead ford 5600 they've just replaced because it's doing the work of three other machines as well and they now need something else!

I might be a spoil sport and some people will have a wet dream over it, but from my point of view I'd rather Have a 70hp Tractor with front loader, and a 5ton slew than this. And I'd expect I could get both cheaper!

Looks flimsy, complicated and expensive to buy and repair. Jack of all master of none !!

Sums it up really. Looked a bit slow at everything it did too.

These machines will only ever become mainstream in the UK if the running cost per hour comes down to what the equivalent dedicated machine costs.

Think your missing the point There mate if you wanted a dedicated Duck, Loader or tractor you wouldn't buy one of these type of machines Thet are a niche machine perhaps an owner operator that has part time use for Tractor Loader and excavator could find that One machine One insurance One deprecation One service bill works out very well it may not perform any of the tasks as well as a dedicated machine but it can do things a dedicated machine cant
Will it ever be main stream ? No. Will it provide a profitable way to earn a living for some ? Maybe

Keep looking at it....

Ideal scenario I can think of for it is a Island somewhere.... Expensive to ship the machine there and need to do the Rolls of a light tractor/loader and digger, Ideal!

Trouble is I just don't think it would be very good at any one task? I think I need to try and get on one one day, if only to prove that like a swiss army knife, the pair of scissors are as useful as they are sharp..

It would be perfect for my eventual line of work in the equine support area as you could use all of the machines it is based on in a day and then none of them for a few days if it could power a decent size post knocker on the pto and tow a twin axle trailer it would make a good one man fencing rig the remote would be perfect so you can walk along side to get the spacing's right. Put a encon on the dipper and could be used for water pipes field drainage. As a loader with forks it could unload posts and rails use a bucket for menage dressing turning muck heaps. as a tractor tow a grass cutter a chain harrow and many more applications. Yes i may have put a bit of thought in to it over a couple of days just need to find a nice rich backer now and i am set lol
