WL28, the newly introduced wheel loader by Wacker Neuson, comes with a high degree of flexibility.
Wheel loaders are used where a flexible and reliable machine for material transport is needed: in gardening and landscaping, in rental yards, the municipal area or for construction companies. In addition, the machines must be designed so that they can also handle the requirements of confined spaces. Exactly this is one of the strengths of the new wheel loader WL28 by Wacker Neuson. Its compact dimensions and low operating weight allows transport on a conventional car trailer, and a low headroom of less than 2.3 m, most buildings are no problem for it. Customers, who have opted for a cab with foldable driver canopy (EPS) in the configuration of the wheel loader, can even reduce the clearance even more.
Despite its compact size, with a tipping load of 1.9 tonne, it transports goods. Additionally, the loading of construction trucks is no problem due to the overhead loading height of 2.33 m. The optimised parallel guidance and two large lift cylinders provide a powerful load arm.
On construction sites, busy operation is commonplace, thus a free field of vision in the work area is essential. To ensure this, the height of the front carriage was kept deliberately low on the WL28. Subsequently, the operator has a great view of the attachments at any time, which significantly facilitates their operation and their replacement.
Another important aspect is the stability of the wheel loader. Due to a short wheel base and an articulated pendulum joint, the WL28 not only has a high stability but is also extremely versatile with an oscillating angle of 12o. Tight turning radii are no problem thanks to an articulation angle of 44o. A connectible 100 per cent differential lock ensures that the wheel loader has maximum traction even on difficult surfaces. The result: high propulsive power with low ground impact and that exactly when the circumstances require it.
A performance hydraulic with up to 58.5 l/min enables the trouble-free operation of hydraulic attachments such as mowers, sweepers, concrete mixing blades or weed broom and thus increases the overall productivity of the vehicle. A wide range of attachments not only expands the range of applications of the wheel loader, but also increase its efficiency.
New ET16 Tracked Excavator
The new tracked excavator ET16 from Wacker Neuson is especially suitable for excavation work in confined spaces and offers the operator a generous cabin for best working conditions.
Wacker Neuson has introduced a new tracked mini-excavator. The new ET16 from Wacker Neuson is especially suitable for excavation work in confined spaces and offers the operator a generous cabin for best working conditions. The ET16 can reach hardly accessible spots without problems and is therefore particularly suitable for work indoors, the inner-city area or for landscaping - simply for all those places where working in confined spaces is often necessary. Its telescopic undercarriage, which can be extended from 990 to 1,300 mm, allows the operator to drive through narrow passages and also ensures a high level of stability when the telescopic undercarriage is extended. An operating weight of 1.5 tonne makes the new mini-excavator ideally suited for use on sensitive soils as it can easily be controlled there. Due to its low transport weight which is 1,400-1,600 kg, a normal car trailer is sufficient to transport the ET16. The side elements of the dozer blade are firmly connected to the plate, making installation or additional tools unnecessary.
The machine design provides the operator with a maximum of legroom and headroom. A powerful and fuel-efficient 3-cylinder diesel engine (13.2 kW) and a second travelling speed of up to 4 km/h allows quick switching between different working positions and makes the mini-excavator a fast and flexible helper on the construction site - thanks also to its digging depth of about 2.240 mm and a maximum dump height of 2,500 mm.
A direct access to the engine compartment provides easy and quick access to all relevant service points and allows for shorter maintenance and downtimes.
