Wacker Neuson Enters Mini CTL Market

Jan. 21, 2022

The SM100 Wacker Neuson track loader is its first mini compact track loader. The 24.7-horsepower utility track loader has a Yanmar turbo charged diesel.

Operating weight of the Wacker Neuson loader is 3,300 pounds. Rated operating capacity at 35 percent is 1,000 pounds with a tipping load of 2,857 pounds. The radial-lift loader has a hinge pin height of 85.7 inches.

The stand-on mini CTL has standard 9-inch-wide tracks that provide 4.1 psi of ground pressure. Measuring 35.5 inches wide, it fits through doorways, gates, and other tight spaces. It has triple-flanged rollers to reduce wear on the tracks and to reduce de-tracking.

Auxiliary flow rate is 13 gpm at a pressure of 3,045 psi. Forward-angled joysticks position the operator’s hands in a neutral position, which reduces operator fatigue, according to the company. The spring-suspended operator platform has ergonomic padding. An operator presence system prevents accidental movement of the lift arm and travel functions when the operator steps off the platform. Front- mounted coolers mean no hot or dirty air is blown across the operator’s legs.
