The construction equipment manufacturer, Atlas Weyhausen, is expanding its range of large wheel loaders. This includes the introduction of a new model designation and, in future, four new size classes: S, L, XL and XXL to help customers pick the best product. Atlas Weyhausen will present the new XXL wheel loaders, a representative cross section of wheel loaders with a new type designation and solutions for exhaust gas purification at bauma 2019.
In future, in accordance with the stage 5 emissions standard set out by the EU, all diesel engines with an output over 19 kW must be fitted with a diesel particle filter as a minimum. This therefore affects almost all wheel loaders made by Atlas Weyhausen. There will be a variety of solutions available which ensure compliance with the new emissions standard, depending on the output of the specific engine. Depending on the engine output, Atlas Weyhausen provides the technical solution DOC/DPF or the combination DOC/DPF/SCR. The new emissions standard was also the catalyst for a fundamental decision made at Atlas Weyhausen. In order to make it absolutely clear which models comply with the new standard, the company has decided to introduce a new model designation.
