Sophisticated design solutions characterise XPower® wheel loaders
XPower® wheel loaders differ from conventional wheel loaders not only in their use of innovative technology but also in their design. Whilst design development focused on functionality and user friendliness in particular, attention was also paid to the look of the machine. The silhouette is compact and even when not in use these machines create a dynamic and powerful impression.
The XPower® wheel loaders have modern design elements throughout, from the lift arm to the comfort cabin and rear section with the latter characterised by striking lines. As well as being aesthetically pleasing, this has important functional advantages. The tapered engine hood gives the driver excellent visibility towards the rear of the machine and increases safety immediately around it. Heavy components including the motor are installed right at the back of the machine’s rear section, removing the need for additional counterweight. This ideal weight distribution results in high tipping loads and greater handling capacity per hour of operation.
The XPower’s radiator is located directly behind the operator's cab in what is the cleanest area of a wheel loader. In this position, the cooling system can aspirate air with a low dust content, which ensures consistent and reliable cooling performance. This intelligent design solution reduces maintenance and increases machine availability.
