Wacker recently introduced three new compact dumpers to the U.S. market, models 1001, 3001 and 6001. The 1001 mini-dumper is equipped with a hydrostatic, four-wheel-drive propel system and has a payload capacity of 2,205 pounds. The 1001 uses a three-cylinder, 16.5-horsepower Yanmar diesel engine. The 3001 is a mid-range dumper that will haul a payload of 6,614 pounds. It features hydrostatic, permanent, four-wheel drive and develops 48.8 horsepower from its four-cylinder Yanmar diesel engine. The 6001 can move a payload of 13,227 pounds, and it uses an 82-horsepower Perkins diesel engine. The 6001 can dump both forward or to either side via its swivel feature.
