  • The flexible combination with various attachments reduces the total fleet and thus the total cost of ownership (TCO).
  • Compact machines with high hydraulic output save money, as it is not necessary to immediately procure or use a bigger machine.
Wacker Neuson wheel loader WL28, Attachment mode

Electronically regulated drive system: Attachment-Mode

  • The attachment-mode is perfectly suited for the use of attachments. In this mode, you adjust the rpm of the diesel engine with the hand throttle and control the travel speed with the driver pedal or the cruise control. This enables you to make very fine adjustments of 0.10 km/h to your speed via the display. This guarantees a constant forward momentum for the attachment. If the load on the attachment becomes too high (e.g., various clippings in front of a mulcher), the machine automatically reduces the travel speed to provide the attachment with the highest possible power. When the load is reduced again, the machine returns to the preset speed. However, if you want to carry out driving or reversing movements faster, you can override at any time by operating the foot pedal and even bring the machine to maximum speed.
  • In attachment mode, the machine's diesel engine and the attachment are always optimally utilized. This ensures maximum productivity and the best possible work result. In addition, the operator's workload is reduced, thus increasing comfort. The operator can work with the machine longer and without fatigue.
Wacker Neuson wheel loader WL, tyres

Optimum tires

  • The right tires for a wheel loader play an important role in actual use. If the tires are optimally matched to the ground and the area of application, the driver can work with the machine without any problems.
  • Choosing the right tires provides maximum traction as well as minimal wear, which saves money because tires don't need to be changed frequently.
  • To achieve optimal performance on any subbase, seven treads are available for selection depending on model: EM tread, AS tread, SureTrax tread, RP tread, MPT tread, multi-use tread and Bibload tread. This ensures the maximum flexibility of the machine ex work.
Wacker Neuson wheel loader WL20-WL28, Easy Protection System (eps)

EPS folding overhead guard (Easy Protection System)

  • Compact wheel loaders can be equipped with the fold-down operator's canopy EPS (Easy Protection System). This complies with the current European Machinery Directive according to ROPS and FOPS protection. With a few hand movements, the EPS can be prepared manually for a low clearance height.
  • EPS increases the flexibility of the machine, as it can even pass through low passages. Also, the application areas of the machine are expanded. In other cases where several machines might have to be used, just one machine can get the work done. At the same time, the operator’s safety remains guaranteed.
Wacker Neuson wheel loader WL20-WL110, Lubrication points

Easily accessible machine components.

  • Regularly lubricating all lubrication points is essential for the correct and effective maintenance and thereby the value retention of the machine. To save time and make work easier, the lubrication points on Wacker Neuson wheel loaders are always in an easily accessible position.
  • Since the lubrication points are easily accessible, the machine is lubricated more often than if the lubrication points are located in a position that is difficult to access. This in turn increases the longevity of the machine and increases value retention.
Wacker Neuson wheel loader WL44, Ergonomic workplace

Ergonomic cockpit

  • Plenty of legroom, clearly arranged controls, comfortable operator’s seat, and optimal view of the attachment. A work area that motivates the operator and fully supports them.
  • The coordinated equipment increases comfort and allows the operator to work optimally with the machine for longer periods of time.
Wacker Neuson wheel loader WL25-WL110, Load swing damping

Lifting arm damping

  • The lifting arm damping can be activated electrically and enables optimum handling of the machine on rough terrain and on the road. It is particularly recommended when the machine has to move a heavy load in the bucket or a heavy attachment over a long distance at high speed. In this case, the lifting arm damping provides more safety and comfort for the operator.
  • Lifting arm damping prevents the machine from rocking at high travel speeds. This increases safety for the operator and protects the vehicle components by absorbing shocks.
Wacker Neuson wheel loader WL25-WL110, Handinching

Hand inching (low-speed control)

  • With the manual inching (low-speed drive system), very slow travel speeds can be achieved at constant engine speed. This offers an advantage when using attachments that are operated at constantly high rpm but at a very low travel speed at the same time. When using a sweeper, for example, the foot pedal does not have to be permanently depressed, which in turn reduces wear.
  • The hand inching (low-speed drive system) enables comfortable and fatigue-free work with the same attachment even over a longer period of time.
Wacker Neuson wheel loader WL28, Adjustable steering column and steering wheel

Adjustable steering wheel and steering column

  • The steering wheel and steering column can be individually adjusted in both height and tilt over a wide range. This allows each operator to work ergonomically with the machine at the settings that suit them best.
