Wacker Neuson launches compact machines
Wacker Neuson introduced four Series II large-frame skid steer loaders and compact track loaders at the recently held World of Concrete show. The radial-lift SW24, vertical-lift SW28, radial-lift ST35 and vertical-lift ST45 showcased for the first time at the concrete show, will soon be available commercially in the market.

The models feature the only cab that fully tips forward with the loader arms down, giving easy access to all maintenance components, according to the company. Powered by a 74.3-hp Kohler engine, the units have a standard auxiliary hydraulic flow of 22.1 gallons per minute and an optional flow of 31.7 gallons per minute. The cab features repositioned joysticks as well as ergonomically positioned switches designed to reduce operator fatigue.

There is no lap bar. The wide door and step offers easy access and exit, and operators can choose between mechanical hand-foot (SW models), electric-hydraulic (EH) hand-foot and selectable EH controls in either the ISO or H-pattern. A 5.7-inch colour display is standard on all models except for mechanical hand-foot control skid steer models, where it is an option.
