Telehandlers are the all-rounder among loaders. Sturdiness, efficiency output and operator-friendliness are focused on during their design and development. So too with the new models, which will be presented at this year's bauma.
With a finely tiered selection of telehandlers up to 9 m in stacking height, Wacker Neuson has the right machine on offer for many customer requirements. New at bauma, the models TH627, the successor of the proven TH625, as well as all machines in the 7 to 9 m class were shown. What they all have in common: a new engine in keeping with the latest technological developments. Wacker Neuson therefore now offers a total of 10 finely tiered models. Starting now, Wacker Neuson is installing an engine of exhaust emission Stage IV in the telehandlers with a stacking height between 7 and 9 m. This also meets particularly strict emissions regulations, such as those for the urban sector. The TH627 is equipped with an engine that meets the requirements of exhaust emission Stage IIIB with a diesel oxidation catalytic converter (DOC).
With the TH627, Wacker Neuson moves into the popular 2x2 m class, which owes its name to the compact dimensions with a height of 1.98 m and a width of 1.96 m. With its high level of maneuverability, the compact telehandler is a valuable helper on tight construction sites. It is a versatile helper with a stacking height of nearly 6 m and a payload of up to 2,700 kg. The new hydraulic system with 90 L/min discharge volume, an electro-hydraulic pilot control and a load-independent flow distribution (LUDV) make it possible to control the machine accurately. The automatic bucket return, an adjustable oil volume for all hydraulic auxiliary control circuits as well as energy-efficient LED work lights are optionally offered.
For all new telehandlers, three types of steering - front axle steering, all-wheel steering and crab steering - are available for greater mobility. Using the front axle steering, the telehandler can move safely in traffic while the all-wheel steering allows for an extremely small turning circle. The crab steering on the other hand helps during parallel displacing of the machine, such as when maneuvering near a wall.
The standard, completely infinitely variable drive system of the telehandler provides for high propulsive power and comfortable working. More efficiency in application and comfort for the operator is achieved through the end position damping in all cylinders, the material losses are minimized and the comfort level is increased for the operator due to the very sensitive steering. The automatic bucket return that is optionally available for all models allows for even faster work cycles. The panoramic cabin provides for the best possible view of the attachment and more safety on the construction site.
VLS: Safety for the operator and machine
In order to guarantee the best possible protection of the operator and machine with maximum efficiency of the sequence of operations at the same time, all telehandlers from Wacker Neuson are outfitted with the innovative driver assistance system VLS. The system prevents the machine from tipping over in the longitudinal direction due to overload, without affecting the operating speed. Because where other systems interrupt the working cycle by switching off the hydraulic functions, VLS allows for safe and smooth sequences of operations even under high payloads through a partial automation of the telescopic movement. All models were awarded the Wacker Neuson ECO seal for more profitability and efficiency for this intelligent assistance system.
