    Anyone running a Wacker wheel loader?? We have one at the shop to try out. Were going to use it to move wood out of back yards and other odds and ends. Go bad or otherwise I'd like to hear about them.

    Thanks John

    Hi John, I just found out about them this week. Made a few calls to local dealers in South Eastern PA. I'm particularly interested in the 280 or smaller WL30. Which model do you have at the shop? Keep us posted on thes interesting new additions to the articulated wheel loader lineup. Thanks, cybermallinc

    We have the w30 and it worked out pretty good yesterday moving wood out to a waiting log truck. We'll see how it holds up.

    wacker w30

    i presently have a john deere 317 skid steer on wheels w/ a ryan's rotating grapple. i've been happy with this skid steer for moving logs/ firewood except it tears up the customer lawns. that's why i'm thinking about an articulated wacker w30 like yours. let us know how it does on delicate surfaces once you had a chance to try it. also the lifting capacity & handling of logs since it's articulated.
