126 Compact Equipment JULY/AUGUST 2018 Wacker Neuson All-Wheel, Articulated and Telescopic Loaders Set This Brand Apart W acker Neuson is not new to the wheel loader market. For more than 80 years, the company has been developing and producing wheel loaders for the farm and construction industry in Europe. In 2007, wheel loaders were the first material handling products Wacker Neuson started to market in North America. Widely known for its compaction equipment line, Wacker Neuson embraced the wheel loader market and continues to expand the line and industries it serves. Wacker Neuson wheel loaders can be found in a variety of industries, including but not limited to construction, agriculture, landscape, forestry, municipal, snow removal and recycling. Wacker Neuson offers three types of wheel loaders in North America: all-wheel steer, articulated and telescopic. All have the power, performance and operator com- fort to tackle any job and quickly and precisely manage all types of loads, says the company. All-wheel steer loaders (AWS) are designed with a ridged one-piece chassis that prevents shifts in the center of gravity at full turn. This ensures stability, even when working on uneven ground and maintains constant payload. The AWS has a 40-de- gree steering angle on each axle that allows a high degree of maneuverability which helps to reduce transit and cycle times. Most AWS models feature three steering modes, four-wheel, two- wheel and crab, which provide maximum ma- neuverability on the job. Articulated wheel load- ers are designed with an articulation joint, al- lowing the machine to pivot. When working in confined areas with tight turns and uneven terrain, the articulated wheel load- ers maneuver well. The articulation joint allows the machine to access and operate in areas such as residential spaces, green- houses and barns. The high degree of maneuver- ability and stability allow materials to be transported more efficiently. Telescopic wheel loaders offer a two- in-one machine concept with additional reach for stacking and dumping with a telescopic boom, plus ground engaging capabilities, providing added versatility and greater productivity. All Wacker Neuson wheel loaders come with a hydraulically operated universal attachment plate allowing operators to go beyond the bucket. All attachments (new or current) can be quickly and easily changed, making wheel loaders the perfect year-round jobsite solution. Advice to Buyers "Because of their excel- lent visibility, reduced op- erating costs and higher travel speed, wheel load- ers can be a viable alterna- tive to skid steers in some applications such as ag- riculture, municipal and nursery," says Jay Quatro, field application and train- ing specialist with Wacker Neuson. "And because of the universal skid steer plate, it allows you to use any of your current skid steer attachments."
