 Wheel Loaders

Wheel loaders are versatile mobile shovels that transfer material from stockpiles to trucks, or transport material around job sites. Bucket sizes range from perhaps 1 cubic yard for small utility machines, to 20 cubic yards or more for large models in mining applications. Small and mid-sized wheel loaders frequently have an attachment coupler that allows them to use work tools such as forks, brooms, and lifting jibs.


Liebherr will be introducing its “XPower” large wheel loader line in the U.S. in 2016; rollout of the line, ranging from the L 550 to the L 586 (six models, 4.2- to 7.8-cubic-yard buckets), will be staggered.

Models 95Z7XT and 115Z7XT are “2-Pass” configurations of the company’s 95Z7 and 115Z7 wheel loaders.

The 60Z7 and 67Z7 wheel loaders have operating weights of 24,380 and 26,410 pounds, respectively

The 90Z7 wheel loader meets Tier 4-Final requirements using a 275-horsepower Cummins QSL9 engine with SCR technology.

Wacker Neuson’s newest all-wheel-steer (AWS) wheel loaders include the conventional-boom 8085 and the telescopic-boom 8085T.

One of the key costs that manufacturers have identified is fuel, which accounts for nearly half of the operating cost of a piece of equipment.
