Kramer launches flagship wheel loader


Kramer-Werke has unveiled its flagship wheel loader. The new 8155 all-wheel steer loader is a 9-ton machine equipped with powerful load-sensing hydraulics, an eco-speed travel drive and a reliable Deutz engine.

With a bucket tipping load of 5,600kg, a stack payload of 3,900kg and an operating weight of 9,150kg, Kramer expects the new model to meet industry demands for powerful but efficient machines.

Karl Friedrich Hauri, managing director of Kramer-Werke, said, “When we look at the wheel loader market, we see that the performance class of the 1.5m³ loaders has experienced a significant upturn in the last two years. With our new flagship in the Kramer wheel loader portfolio, we serve this segment. Naturally, our customers also benefit from the Kramer quality of this machine.”

The new Kramer flagship is powered by a 100kW Deutz TCD 3.6 engine of exhaust-gas stage IV. The exhaust gas aftertreatment is carried out by a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) and selective catalytic reduction (SCR). The even more powerful Deutz TCD 4.1 with 115kW is available to the customer as an option. Here, the exhaust gas is treated with DOC, SCR and diesel particulate filter.

The company expects the machine to be appropriate for the recycling industry as well as the more demanding tasks in road and path construction.

As a special innovation, the 8155 wheel loader features the new eco-speed pro hydrostatic wide-angle travel drive with an optional 370cc absorption volume for increased tractive effort and driving dynamics.

Kramer co-developed the continuously variable hydrostatic transmission with 45° swivelling angle of the hydraulic motor. In addition to the positive properties known for hydrostatic drives, such as simple reversing, good dosing and inching, the wide conversion range of the 45° technology also allows the entire speed range from 0km/h to 40km/h to be driven through without shifting and thus without loss of thrust and tractive forces.

In typical working situations, such as handling work in the Y-cycle, there is a high demand for constant thrust and traction forces at low travel speeds. The eco-speed pro gear unit exactly meets these requirements.
