What's New in Plant & Equipment


Weidemann Telehandler

With the introduction of the T6027, Weidemann is bring-

ing a substantially modified model to replace the dis-

continued T6025.

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-

imum safety.

Other fea-

tures include

electric pilot-op-

erated joystick

and the load-de-

pendent flow

for faster load-

cyc l es .

There is also an

automatic buck-

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


Added Versatility

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
