What's New in Plant & Equipment
With the introduction of the T6027, Weidemann is bring-
ing a substantially modified model to replace the dis-
The new , top of the range, model is driven by a level
III-B turbo engine with 55.4 kW/75 hp with maximum
payload capacity of 2,700 kg and 6 m lift. There are four
models in the Weidemann telehandler range.
To ensure the operator can work with maximum
flexibility and efficiency, 3 new speed stages are available
(0–7 km/h, 0–15 km/h and 0–20 km/h) — and 30 km/h
is available as an option. The maximum payload can also
be increased to 2.7 t, which allows the machine to be
employed over a wide range of applications.
The VLS (Vertical Lift System) is already well estab-
lished in Weidemann telehandlers and has been imple-
mented in the T6027. The operator can now even choose
between 3 different modes — bucket, stacking and
manual mode. This
allows for faster
loading cycles dur-
ing each work op-
eration and gives
the operator max-
and the load-de-
d i s t r i b u ti o n
for faster load-
cyc l es .
There is also an
et return option.
The automatic bucket return pro-
vides the operator with added con-
venience, comfort and speed during
repetitive jobs, such as stacking
with pallet forks or filling bins at a
fixed height or travelling over high sides with the
The telehandler also offers a special feature that is
helpful for coupling and uncoupling hydraulically oper-
ated attachments: The knob for the pressure release
lever of the 3rd control circuit is placed outside on the
telescopic arm so it is easily accessible.
As a result, different attachments can be changed
more quickly and efficiently. This even works when the
ignition is on or the engine is running.
The T6027 offers excellent all-round visibility with an
especially good view to the right, thanks to a deeply
drawn, sloping engine hood.
All wheel steering, front axle steering or crab steering
allows the telehandler to manoeuvre in restricted
The telehandler is suitable for trailer operation. Various
optional trailer couplings are available: from a simple
shunting coupler to a semi-automatic to an auto-hitch
trailer coupling. The unbraked trailer weight is 750 kg
with a braked axle of 3,500 kg, and with two axles braked
at 8,000 kg. With hydraulic brake system, a trailer weight
of up to 11,250 kg can be moved. A hydraulic connection
for connecting a tipper can be added.
Durable and Reliable
Weidemann equipment is primarily designed for agri-
cultural purposes and, as such, emphasis is placed on
versatility, reliability and durability as well as being able
to cope with difficult ground conditions. These attributes
are also demanded by companies in the construction
