4-WD Articulated Mini Loader
The German-made Weidemann loader is available in three models, with the smallest one only 33 in. wide and the largest 4 ft. 3 in. wide.All models are powered by Mitsubishi diesel engines ranging from 20 to 38 hp. Standard equipment includes hydrostatic transmission and steering, an adjustable spring suspension seat, and mechanical quick tach locking system. More than 25 different attachments are available including a standard bucket, special feeding buckets for silage, corn, etc., an earth bucket with clawing teeth, scarifier, grapple fork, dozer blade, 45-in. lawn mower, pallet fork, auger, and sweeper.
"It's more maneuverable than a conventional skid steer loader and allows precise load placement," says Wiesen. "It drives smooth and doesn't leave tire marks like a skid steer loader because you don't have to apply the brakes to turn. It has a 4-way floating lever for up-down and tilt control of the bucket. Bucket capacity starts at 1,100 lbs. and goes up to 3,500 lbs.
"It comes with a mechanical quick tach mounting system for attachments but we also offer a hydraulic quick tach system. The mower mounts on the quick tach arms and is hydraulically driven. A hydraulic-driven snowblower is also available."
Prices range from $22,900 to $42,900 (Canadian).
