Tight space conditions on the construction site, but nevertheless can still transport high loads – the ideal application for the WL28. Pallets with paving stones or other transport goods up to 1600 kg are easily mastered by the WL28 and, thanks to compact dimensions and a low passage height of less than 2.3 m, it can go almost anywhere. If the access to the work area is even narrower and lower, the WL28 is optionally also available with the manually or hydraulically lowerable operator's canopy (EPS).
  • Powerful and flexible: Universally applicable machine thanks to very good performances with tipping load, lifting force and lift height.
  • Easy to transport: Due to the low weight, the WL28 is suitable for transport via car trailer.
  • Everything in view: The low front carriage allows for a very good view of the work area.
  • Open service access to hydraulics, engine and air cleaner through fold-down driver's canopy – shortens the maintenance and therefore also downtimes.
  • Powerful hydraulics with many options: Highflow allows for the operation of attachments such as snow blowers.

The articulated pendulum joint

The guarantee for the best possible stability and maneuverability. Due to the joint, all four wheels remain in constant contact with the ground and the machine moves with maximum traction. In addition, the machine is therefore uniquely maneuverable. It is therefore possible to turn curves at an angle of up to 45° degrees.

Inch brake pedal

  • Full power for the hydraulics and at the same time reducing the travel speed: To do this, you only need one pedal with the Wacker Neuson wheel loaders.
  • You can regulate both mechanical as well as hydraulic braking ("inching") via the brake-inch pedal.
  • The advantages are obvious: less wearof the service brake and optimal power distribution of the engine output.

No pressure on inch brake pedal: full power for the drive system

Slightly depressed brake-inch pedal: The speed is reduced, more power to the work hydraulics.

Further depressed brake-inch pedal: The speed is reduced further, even more power to the work hydraulics

Further depressed brake-inch pedal: The wheel loader stands still, full power to the work hydraulics


  • Transport easily with the car trailer thanks to a shipping weight of about 3,000 kg and compact dimensions in width and length

Choose your driver's cabin

All three driver's cabins are perfectly designed for the requirements of everyday construction site life and meet high safety standards.

The cabin

  • Comfortably equipped
  • A high degree of ergonomics allow for fatigue-free work – for hours
  • Corresponds to the current European Machinery Directive (2006/42/EC) according to ROPS and FOPS protection
  • Multifunctional joystick
  • Air conditioning system is optional

Fixed operator's canopy

  • State of the art safety: Operator's canopy with restraint system
  • The operator is optimally protected by the lateral metal bracket
  • Corresponds to the current European Machinery Directive (2006/42/EC) according to ROPS and FOPS protection

Fold-down operator's canopy (EPS)

  • Manually lowerable operator's canopy
  • Through lowering, the machine can also manage low passages of less than 2 m
  • Corresponds to the current European Machinery Directive (2006/42/EC) according to ROPS and FOPS protection


  • Easy service access to hydraulics, engine and air filter for quick maintenance and shorter downtimes – this saves money
  • The driver's canopy is tilted with a few moves
  • Easy to open service flaps

Two lift cylinders

  • For even more stability of the loading system, all wheel loaders from Wacker Neuson are equipped with two lift cylinders.
  • The hydraulic power is thus optimally distributed to the load arm.

Differential lock

  • The 100% connectable differential lock engages in order to work reliably on difficult terrain.
  • The result: maximum shear forces with excellent ground grip.
  • During normal driving, the lock is not connected. This protects the tires from wear.


Everything runs perfectly if the wheel loader and tires are optimally matched to the substrate and application area. Four treads are available to choose from at Wacker Neuson:

RP tread: Suitable for application on lawns. The ground is not disturbed due to the large contact surface.

AS tread: With tapered slats that are suitable for particularly greasy and heavily soiled floors.

EM tread: With almost parallel slats for loose grounds like sand, gravel or crushed stone. This type of tire achieves a large contact surface, thereby achieving a high shear force transmission and is very quiet on the road.

MPT tread: Offers the perfect combination of good traction in uneven terrain as well as quick road crossings.

MTP Gold Medal 2017
The wheel loader WL28 received the "MTP Gold Medal" at the Polish Horticulture and Landscape Architecture Fair, Gardenia 2017. This prize is awarded to particularly innovative products.
