But what is a wheel loader and what should you pay attention to when buying a wheel loader? We describe that below.
A wheel loader is a popular construction machine used to move large amounts of material. It has a front bucket that can be used to move and load soil, debris, rocks, and other materials. With these buckets, wheel loaders can load a large amount of soil in, for example, an articulated dumper or walking floor. With a rubble bucket, a wheel loader can be used to profile a rubble or sand track.
The steering of a wheel loader can be done in different ways, depending on the make and model. First, a wheel loader can be controlled via a steering wheel. This can be done with a full steering wheel (full steering) or half steering wheel (CSS). In addition to steering a wheel loader with a steering wheel, this can also be done with a joystick (joystick steering). Finally, you can use CDC with various Volvo shovels. CDC stands for "Comfort Drive Control" and is a control system developed by Volvo. With this operating system you have both a steering wheel and a joystick.
Controlling a bucket on a wheel loader can be done in two different ways. Joystick steering uses a joystick to operate the bucket. Joystick steering gives the operator more control over the machine. Fingertip steering is a type of joystick steering that allows the operator to operate the machine with one hand. The control panel is designed in such a way that you can easily operate the loading platform with your fingertips. Finally, some wheel loaders are equipped with a weighing system that can measure the weight of the material being loaded. This allows you to work more accurately.
With a 'high lift loader' it is possible to lift and move heavy loads at height. These wheel loaders have a longer arm and hydraulic cylinders that lift the bucket. With a high tip bucket, it is also possible to lift heavy loads at a height. However, these loading platforms are also ideal for loading loose material in, for example, other vehicles and machines, such as a walking floor trailer or articulated dumper.
