New skid steer loaders from Wacker Neuson

Wacker Neuson has developed two new wheeled skid steer loaders from the ground up, offering the power and torque needed to lift more, push more, work more and maneuver through challenging jobsite obstacles. Both machines have the comfort and convenience owners and operators expect and the durability they demand.

With a best-in-class one-year / 1000-hour bumper-to-bumper as well as a transferable engine warranty of four years or 4 000 hours, these new models are ideal for inventory management and resale.

The two new wheeled skid steers are built for performance, versatility and convenience. Class-leading hinge pin height on the vertical lift loader provides maximum loading and unloading capabilities.

An engine torque of 308 Nm provides the power needed for improved ground-engaging performance in all kinds of terrain. The Kohler diesel engine features a zero maintenance and regeneration-free exhaust emission treatment system, eliminating the impact of extreme heat as well as the need for filters. With a fuel tank capacity of 113 liters, the operator is able to spend more time in the cab and less time refueling.

“Versatility comes standard with every Wacker Neuson Loader. The universal skid steer attachment plate enables attachments to be switched out easily, accomplishing more in less time. Category-leading hydraulic horsepower is standard,” says Dennis Vietze, managing director of Wacker Neuson (Pty) Ltd.

Wacker Neuson created a cab environment with operator comfort and convenience in mind. Access in and out is easy, there is no restrictive lap bar and controls are intuitively placed. Additionally, these machines offer the only one-piece pod style cab that fully tilts forward with the lift arms down, providing complete access to all maintenance components.

Wacker Neuson’s new skid steers are available as either radial or vertical lift machines. They were designed and are being built at the construction equipment manufacturer’s production plant in Menomonee Falls, USA.
