The Wacker WL38 articulated wheel loader is small but mighty, with a 74-hp turbocharged Deutz Diesel engine. The WL38 can move up to 19 mph! It features a universal hydraulic attachment plate for existing and future attachments. Plus, the quick-connect hydraulic connector allows for simple, fast attachment change outs.

The Wacker WL38 articulated wheel loader was designed with an articulation joint, allowing the loader to pivot. When working in tight spaces with limited space to turn and when working on uneven terrain, the articulated wheel loaders get the job done. This articulation joint lets the WL38 get to and operate in residential spaces and farm buildings like barns and greenhouses. The exceptional maneuverability and stability help workers move materials easier. A 100% differential lock offers increased traction.

The WL38 is small, but has the power of a larger wheel loader, making it a perfect for snow removal work and general construction. The cab is comfortable and includes factory installed heat and air conditioning.

The WL38 is also sold in a fertilizer edition which includes a 60-hp engine with a cabin that includes full HVAC.

Wacker Nueson has been producing and developing wheel loaders for the farm and construction industry in Europe for more than 80 years. In 2007, the company brought its first articulated models to the United States. Since then, the Wacker Neuson wheel loader line has grown dramatically and today the company offers a full line of articulated, all-wheel steer and telescopic compact wheel loaders that work in a variety of industries including construction, agriculture, landscape, snow removal and recycling.
