Wacker Neuson's WL95 wheeled loader is designed for heavy duty handling work
Wacker Neuson is now offering a heavy-duty wheeled loader with the introduction of its WL95 model. The new 10tonne class machine is the largest wheeled loader offered by Wacker Neuson but retains the firm’s compact design. It features the latest ecospeedPRO transmission, with customers offered a choice of two engine versions that meet the latest emission standards.
The machine is designed for materials handling applications with large construction contractors and recycling companies. Wacker Neuson will now be handling this with the largest wheel loaders in the product range, the WL95 with 10 tons of total weight. The expansion of the product range was realized at the request of multiple customers. The WL95 will be available from January 2019. Like all Wacker Neuson wheel loaders, the new model also has comprehensive standard equipment. In addition to the engine, the travel drive, operator station and hydraulics can be individually configured depending on application and preference.
The new ecospeedPRO transmission allows travel speeds of up to 40km/h and is an infinitely variable hydrostatic system, which is said to allow higher tractive forces and driving speeds. Features of the transmission include easy reversing, good controllability, inching and brake force support.
The WL95 is available with a Deutz 3.6litre engine delivering 100kW and equipped with a DOC/SCR emission control system that meets the Tier 4 Final/Stage IV emissions standard. A diesel particulate filter is optionally available, which is already certified for Stage V applicable starting in 2020. It is also offered with a 4.1litre Deutz engine delivering 115 KW. This unit is equipped with an exhaust aftertreatment with DOC/DPF/SCR system and also already meets the future valid exhaust emission Stage V.
With a bucket, the WL95 has a total length of 6.5m and is 2.39m wide, while its turning circle is only 4.9m with an inner radius of 2.45m. The machine offers a tipping load of over 5.7tonnes, while it can tow a trailer load of up to 18tonnes.
