Weidemann Consistently Continues the Engine Conversion
23 November 2019
Into the emissions-optimised future with three additional models.
New models 2080LP and 2080LPT
After the final discontinuation of the popular and successful 2070LP and 2070LPT models with 80hp due to the current exhaust emission standards, Weidemann is presenting the two successor models 2080 and 2080LPT: both of these models have been reworked and are now equipped with a Deutz TD 2.9 (45 kW / 61 hp) engine as a standard. A Deutz TCD 2.9 (55.4 kW / 75 hp) is also optionally available. Both engines are equipped with DOC (diesel oxidation catalytic converter) and DPF (diesel particle filter) and meet the current exhaust emission standard V.
The reworking of the 20 LP series is also reflected in the new dynamic machine design, based on the existing 30, 40 and 50 series. In this connection, the machines can optionally be fitted with the comfort cab with LED work lights. An air conditioning system is also available as an option. The similarly optional proportional control via the multifunction joystick now enables more convenient working: in addition to the function of the 3rd proportional control circuit activated on the joystick, the continuous operation of the 3rd control can also be activated using the button toggle switch – also in both directions by moving the thumbwheel. For the wheeled loaders, the function of the 4th control circuit can also be operated proportionally via the joystick. For the telescopic wheel loaders, the telescoping is possible via the scroll wheel. The operating speed can thus be individually adjusted. Both electrical functions can also be operated on the joystick in a detenting or latching manner. Both electric functions are independent so that they can be individually configured by the operator.
At Weidemann, LP stands for "Low Position" Thanks to the lower driver’s cab and seat position, the machine has a lower overall height. This means it can easily travel through narrow passages. It also allows the operator easy entry and shifts the centre of gravity towards the ground. The Weidemann LP models come standard with an operator's canopy, which meets the current European machine directive (2006/42/EC) for ROPS and FOPS protection. You can choose from various versions of the operator's canopy and cab.
Revision of the telehandler T5522 with Perkins engine
Of course, the Weidemann telehandler product range will also be reworked in connection with the exhaust emission standard. The T5522 with 5.50 m lifting height and 2.2 tonne payload is just the start. In the future, the powerful all-rounder will be available on the market with the Perkins 404J- E22T with 60 hp and DPF (diesel particle filter). The developers chose this engine, because it has a higher torque, even at lower speeds, and therefore more of an ideal performance curve. In addition, the lower noise level of the engine was impressive. The nearly service-free exhaust after-treatment increases the telehandlers easy handling for the operator. The always- transparent after-treatment regeneration offers an overview and guarantees a smooth operation, even of a heavily stressed work machine.
In addition to the integration of an exhaust after-treatment in the form of a particulate filter, the adaptation of the machines to exhaust emission standard level V also requires an additional optimisation of the cooling capacity. A positive side effect is that these new components not only contribute to reducing emissions, but also that the performance of the machines can be greatly improved and the fuel consumption can be reduced by approximately 5 % – convincing arguments!
