Off-road capabilities for Wacker Neuson’s new loader range

The WL54 weighs in at 5 800kg and comes with an engine output of 55,4kW.

Wacker Neuson has further expanded its wheel loader range with the arrival of three new models. All machines are particularly characterised by off-road capability, increased durability and simple operation.

The three new models – the WL28, WL44 and WL54 – are ideal for contractors, gardening and landscaping, rental parks and the municipal sector. The WL28, a compact wheel loader specifically designed for application in the construction industry, scores particularly well due to its 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 greater stability.

With a tipping load of 1,8t the WL28 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, even construction site trucks can be loaded. The WL28 is particularly versatile due to the wide range of attachments.

The WL44 and WL54, with bucket capacities of 0,8 and 1m³, are the new powerful all-rounders among the Wacker Neuson wheel loaders. Due to their self-explanatory operation, they are aimed at customers who require cost-efficient technology for traditional loading work with frequently changing operators.

The WL44 has an operating weight of 4 600kg and a standard engine output of 35,7 kW (optional 44,7 and 55,4kW) while the WL54 weighs in at 5 800kg  with an engine output of 55,4kW. With their overhead loading heights of 3 and 3,33m, both wheel loaders are suited for material transport and the ongoing truck loading on the construction site. With different operator’s canopies and cabin designs, the machines can be outfitted in a very 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.

Equipment Africa says: 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 and therefore constitute a very diverse offer for customers with different applications.
