Wacker Neuson has expanded its skid steer and compact track loader line with several new 100-hp models.
The SW32 skid steer and ST40 and ST50 compact track loaders have been optimized to provide more working power to achieve faster cycle times when pushing or digging heavy materials.
The new skid steer and CTLs provide the needed power when operating high demand hydraulic attachments, such as forestry mulchers and cold planers.
All three Wacker Neuson machines are powered by a Kohler KDI 3404 turbo diesel engine that offers a maintenance-free diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) and a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system as an exhaust aftertreatment.
Wacker Neuson selected the Kohler KDI engines for all of its skid steers, due to its advanced design, power, performance and ease of maintenance.
The SW32 skid steer offers a rated operating capacity of 1,450 kg and the vertical lift arm offers a hinge-pin height of 3.4 metres, which is ideal for using pallet forks and loading high-sided trucks.
The ST40 is a radial lift compact track loader with a hinge pin height of 128.3-inches and a rated operating capacity of 1,180 kg (35 per cent) and 1,840 kg (50 per cent). With the radial lift arm, the ST40 provides the horizontal reach which is ideal for loading and unloading flatbed trucks. The extra power makes digging in hard soil much easier.

The ST50, a vertical lift machine, has a hinge pin height of 3.46 metres and a rated operating capacity of 1,587 kg (25 per cent) and 2,268 kg (50 per cent). Offering more tractive effort, faster travel speeds and the power to easily handle hydraulic attachments, the ST50 is a workhorse on any job.
The Wacker Neuson cab fully tips forward with the loader arms down, providing complete access to all maintenance components. The machines are engineered to be user-friendly with a simple, open design and efficient layout that requires less time on daily service checks and more time on the job.
A new era of comfort features is integrated into Wacker Neuson’s skid steers and CTLs. The high visibility cab includes angled pedals and foot bed, as well as conveniently located switches that significantly reduce operator fatigue.
Access in and out is easy with a wide door and step, plus there is no restrictive lap bar. Control options for any operator include mechanical hand-foot (SW models), electric-hydraulic (EH) hand-foot and selectable EH (ISO and H-pattern). This ensures operators with varying experience can efficiently operate the machines with ease.
All Wacker Neuson skid steer and compact track loaders were designed, engineered and built in North America.
