Smart solutions for all operating conditions.
At Weidemann, LP stands for "Low Position". Thanks to the lower operator's standing and sitting position, the machine has a lower overall height. It can readily travel through narrow passages. It also allows the operator easy entry and shifts the centre of gravity towards the ground.
The Weidemann benefits at a glance
Weidemann articulated pendulum joint
The backbone of the Weidemann design: The legendary articulated pendulum joint. All four wheels remain in constant contact with the ground and the machine moves with maximum traction. In addition, the machine has unrivalled manoeuvrability.
High quality powder coating
Quality creates added value. The powder coating is a key feature of the Weidemann quality standard. In contrast to the conventional wet painting, it greatly increases the service life and is more efficient and also environmentally friendly in the process. Learn more about powder coating here »
High shear forces from planetary axle
The drive via the planetary axle increases the torque on the wheel and thereby improves the shear force. Due to the optimal ratio between the shear force and machine capacity, you work flexibly and economically at the same time.
100% differential lock
The connectible 100% differential lock provides maximum traction and thrusting force if necessary. It also keeps the tire wear low (switched off during normal operation).
Two strong lift cylinders
Weidemann always installs two lift cylinders in all Hoftrac and wheel loader models. This guarantees that the load distribution is always optimally transferred to the loading arm. In addition, the entire loading system gains stability. The size of the lift cylinder is adapted to the respective size of the machine.
Perfectly matched P-Z-kinematics
The angled loading arm is designed to be particularly sturdy and torsion resistant. At Weidemann, the kinematics are adjusted to the size of the machine: this ensures optimal balances of power for every machine. The P-Z kinematics is a combination of P-kinematics and Z-kinematics. It allows significant lifting and shearing forces and has a finely co-ordinated parallel motion in the process.
Stainless steel steering stops
At a full steering stop, the front and rear carriage of the machine touch. With Weidemann, this area is particularly well-protected by the stainless steel steering stops and there is no corrosion. This provides for value preservation!
Large selection of attachments
Use your machine as a multi-tool: you have a wide selection of attachments available for your Weidemann. Here you can find which attachment in what size is right for your machine »
Large selection of tyres
The optimal tyres for every subgrade: you have a wide selection of different tyres available for your Weidemann. You can find which tyres are right for is right for your machine »
Select your driver’s cab
Overhead guard “low”
Overhead guard “tall”
LP = Low Position
The lower seating position of the operator allows for a lower overall height of the machine. This makes low passages no problem, even with a permanently mounted overhead guard or a cabin.
Quick and easy tool change
Tool change 1
Tool change 2
Tool change 3
Thanks to the hydraulic quick-change system, attachments can be easily and conveniently exchanged. In this way, your machine is again ready for application at once. This increases productivity and profitability. The exchange of the tool takes place through 2-hand operation, which makes an unwanted change impossible — safety always comes first at Weidemann!
Optimum ease of servicing
Good maintenance accessibility for all LP models
The driver’s seat can be removed and the engine hood can be opened backward widely. This makes the engine, hydraulic system and electrical system easily accessible for our LP models.
Easily accessible lubrication points
Regularly greasing all lubrication points of the machine is crucial for the proper and effective maintenance and therefore value retention of the machine. In order to save time and facilitate the work, the lubrication service points are always in an easily accessible position at Weidemann. Optionally, a central lubrication system is available that takes over the lubrication for you.
Short hydraulic hose lengths
Weidemann machines have short hydraulic hose lengths; the hoses are split in several places. If a hydraulic hose needs to be exchanged, the entire hose in the hydraulic circuit does not need to be exchanged, but rather just the affected part. This speeds up work enormously and saves money.
A working area that motivates
Adjustable steering column
The steering column can be individually adjusted according to the operator’s request. This ensures that every operator can work with the machine ergonomically and fatigue-free.
The joystick lies securely and comfortably in your hand. The control is sturdy and sensitive at the same time. In this way, you always have the machine and its key functions under control.
Good all-round visibility — ergonomic workplace
Plenty of legroom, clearly arranged instrument clusters, a comfortable operator’s seat and an optimal visibility of the attachment. A working area that motivates and fully supports the operator.
Pleasant working environment
The working environment in the cabin is excellent, thanks to an efficiently working heating and ventilation system with a fan, fresh air filter and well-placed air nozzles. With the comfort cab, air conditioning is available as an option.
Vibration-damped working area
Vibrations and impacts are absorbed by the machine. Your body is very well-protected and you also work for a longer time, relaxed and fatigue-free, and are therefore simply more focused.
In Weidemann machines, the hydrostatic all-wheel drive is combined with the brake pedal. Through the "inching”, this enables creeping until standstill. With the brake-inch pedal partially depressed, it is possible to travel at millimetre precision at crawling speed at full engine speed while quickly lifting. If the pedal is pushed further, the machine will stop. The advantage of the brake-inch pedal is the optimal distribution of the engine output. Stalling of the engine is also not possible.
New wheel loader generation
New exhaust emission standard stage V — new engine technology
At Weidemann, we have already completed stages I to IV for pollutant reduction in the past few years. However, new and stricter limits in level V and subsequent levels still need to be met. However, because we would like to adapt our machines to the new legal situation and continue to develop our machines, we have put a great deal of developmental work and know-how into the new machine types
Digital display & wedias diagnostic and analytic system
With the digital display, you obtain an overview of your machine. In addition to standard displays like temperature, tank filling, or operating hours, active functions are also displayed in the cab, like activated electrical functions, the continuous operation of the 3rd control circuit, or the activated differential lock. Using the Weidemann diagnostic and analytic system wedias, it is possible to quickly and clearly assess many functions, such as the driving function, telescopic functions, the 3rd and 4th control circuit, the engine data, as well as the electrical functions. Error messages in the display immediately notify the operator of possible failures and make a rapid response possible. Thanks to the exact designation of the error number, the dealer can come to the machine prepared and with the right spare parts. The subsequent error analysis by trained dealers simplifies further diagnosis and troubleshooting. This saves time, money and nerves.
Thanks to the optional trailer coupling, all Weidemann wheel and telescopic wheel loaders can pull a trailer with a total weight up to 18 t – depending on the model. An automatic trailer coupling is available (fixed or height adjustable), as are a height-adjustable ball trailer coupling and a “hitch” trailer coupling. In Germany, the machine must be approved as a self-propelled work machine with ball hitch or as a tractor. To find out about international regulations, please contact your local Weidemann distributor.
