The new compact 5035 and 5040 wheel loaders from Kramer are suitable for flexible and all-year-round use.
From now, Kramer-Werke GmbH is supplying two newly developed compact wheel loader models with different power ratings. On the one hand, the well-known 5035, which has an 18.5 kilowatt / 25.2 HP Yanmar engine, a bucket tipping load of 1,140 kilogrammes and an operating weight of 1,920 kilogrammes. On the other hand, the new 5040 model. This all wheel steer loader is equipped with a 28.5 kilowatt / 38.8 HP Yanmar engine. The machine has a higher operating weight at 2,070 kilogrammes, in addition to a bucket tipping load of 1,400 kilogrammes. Both models possess a completely new cab design, as well as some modern comfort features and power options.
Both of the 5-series models are compact and manoeuvrable wheel loaders. With their dimensions, they are predestined for low clearance heights and tight passages, therefore an indispensable companion for the construction industry. With a width of just 1.26 metres, journeys on the foot path are effortless. In addition to this, due to their low transport weight, it is possible to transport the machines on a car trailer; a quick run over to a different area of application is therefore not a problem. The machines are built on a new framework concept that enables enormous manoeuvrability whilst remaining stable. The three types of steering also provide a plus in terms of flexibility. The all-wheel steering in the series continues to favour maximum manoeuvrability and fast loading cycles in the tightest of spaces. This is complemented by the optional steering types: front wheel and crab steering, which are available for the first time for this class size. Crab steering is perfectly suited to all works along trenches, walls and hedges. This type of steering not only enables movement around obstacles, but keeps the consistent working distance parallel, thereby ensuring a lower risk of damage. The simple and quick switch between all-wheel, front wheel and crab steering occurs via a mechanical steering type changeover.
Modern cab design with a plus for comfort
The new 5040 wheel loader model is equipped with a 28.5 kilowatt / 38.8 HP Yanmar engine as standard. The exhaust after-treatment is carried out by DOC and DPF. Smart Driving PRO is also optionally available for the all wheel steer loader. This is a new feature with three different operator modes that support and relieve the operator in the respective applications whilst being fuel-efficient. In the Power Mode the complete engine output is available. This provides an ideal basis for fast loading cycles and also for work in excavated material. In comparison to the Power Mode, the machine drives the same travel speed in Eco Mode with a reduced engine speed. With the aim to reduce the noise level and to save fuel, this operator mode is above all suitable for stacking work in which the full system power is not required. The third operator mode presents a further development of the known “Low-Speed Control” option. This is operated via the accelerator pedal. Thus when the engine speed is freely adjustable, the forward travel speed can not only be controlled via the handset control but also comfortably and sensitively using the accelerator. This operator mode is best suited for application with attachments, such as a rotary sweeper or a mower. In doing so, the speed can be most sensitively adjusted to changing situations using the accelerator pedal. This means more flexibility and safety for the operator. A fast change between the three mentioned operator modes is now available at the simple press of a button.
Versatile application guaranteed
The quick coupler system continues as standard for efficient work when frequently changing attachments. The large lift and tearout force, in addition to a precise parallel guidance throughout the total height can be achieved through the loader unit with Z-kinematics. The visual position display for bucket and fork is an immense benefit to inexperienced operators or those constantly changing in plant hire businesses or large operations. The 5040 wheel loader continues to impress with optional powerflow auxiliary hydraulics. The compact wheel loaders are therefore ready for application as an all-rounder – no matter whether in use with a snow blower, mulching device, plate compactor or a cultivation device. The new Kramer 5035 and 5040 wheel loaders are versatile and powerful machines for the greatest demands in construction.
