Simple operation at the heart of Wacker Neuson’s new wheel loader range
With an overhead loading height of 2,27m, the WL28 can even load trucks at construction sites.
With three new models, Wacker Neuson has expanded its wheel loader product range. The new line-up is said to be particularly characterised by off-road capability, durability and simple operation.
Comprising the WL28, WL44 and WL54, the new three-model range is ideal for landscaping contractors and municipal work. This range of articulated wheel loaders is tailored to the needs of customers and can be further customised through various options, the company says. They can be used in a versatile manner through numerous attachments, such as sweepers, earth buckets or concrete mixing buckets. Using a hydraulic quick-change device, these can be easily replaced from the operator’s seat.
The WL28, a compact wheel loader specifically designed for a range of applications in the construction industry, has a very good view of the working area. The height of the front carriage was kept very low for this purpose. Due to the short wheel base, the machine has sound stability. With a tipping load of 1,8 tonnes, the wheel loader can therefore easily transport a pallet of sett paving (paving stones). The optimised parallel guidance and two large sized lift cylinders provide for a powerful load arm. With an overhead loading height of 2,27m, it can even load trucks at construction sites.
The WL44 has an operating weight of 4 600kg.
WL44 and WL54
The WL44 and WL54 with bucket capacities of 0,8 and 1,0m³ are the new all-rounders among the Wacker Neuson wheel loaders. Due to their sturdy design and the self-explanatory operation, they are aimed at customers who require cost-efficient technology for traditional loading work with frequently changing operators, the company says. The WL44 has an operating weight of 4 600kg and a standard engine output of 35,7kW (optional 44,7 and 55,4kW) while the WL54 weighs in at 5 800kg and has an engine output of 55,4 kW.
With their overhead loading heights of 3mand 3,33m respectively, both wheel loaders are ideal for material transport and truck loading at construction sites. With different operator’s canopies and cabin designs, the machines can be supplied in a tailored-to-suit manner in terms of function and comfort and allow for applications within buildings, despite their size.
In addition, special attachments, such as asphalt milling machines, can be easily operated with the Highflow option. The articulated pendulum joint allows the operator to drive in a versatile, safe and comfortable fashion, even in uneven terrain conditions. Different tyres also provide for optional traction on any surface.
The three new models now expand the Wacker Neuson wheel loader segment to a total of 12 machines, which are available with a bucket capacity of 0,2 to 1,05m³.
