New models from Weidemann
German wheel loader and telehandler specialist Weidemann has introduced two new models.
Weidemann, a subsidiary of Wacker Neuson, has launched the 4270 CX100T telescopic wheel loader, the company’s largest machine in this category, with an operating weight of 7.5 tonnes.
Powered by a Perkins 4-cylinder engine, the 4270 is based on the previous 4070 model but now features an improved design with beefed-up chassis and additional ballast, reinforced telescopic arm and a twin steering cylinder layout. This new steering system reduces the number of turns of the wheel required to achieve full lock.
Also new is the T4512 CC40 compact telehandler (pictured below), which has a vertical lift system as well as a more powerful engine than its predecessor and improved access for routine maintenance.
The new T4512 is powered by a 29.6 kW (40 hp) Yanmar engine. Headroom is low at 1.96m and width is just 1.56 m. Weighing 2.5 tonne, the machine has a maximum payload of 1.2 tonnes and a useful lift height to the bucket pivot point of 4.5m.
The vertical lift system automatically adjusts the position of the telescopic arm cylinder while the lift cylinder is being operated to maximise stability.
