 Most Important Wheel Loader Specifications ?

When buying a wheel loader, what specifications do you put the most emphasis on?
Rated payload, bucket capacity or engine type and power?

Or some other elements, such as gradeability, traction force and breakout force?
Could you help me out about this ?

Reliability, a solid dealer with parts in stock and a well-equipped service department.

A broken machine in the yard is no bargain at any price.

I wouldn't even consider buying something that had zero dealer and/or distributor backup regardless of how cheap it is.

Even if it was far below the cost of a big brand machine.


Best of luck.

Depends on how you'll use it (excavating hard stuff is different than carrying light material). And it's not just the machine itself but how it's equipped (bucket, tires, engine).

The fixed cost is simple but they last so long that operating costs can be more important, but calculating fuel, maintenance, repairs, and depreciation is complex.

Also, easy maintenance is very important, and cost performace count a lot, too. Do you have some preference for brand ?

As the old saying goes, "you have the shoe on the wrong foot.".

A machine that isn't easy to maintain is a sign of a very inferior design, and likely isn't built well either.

To say something like "this wheel loader is easy to maintain" is like saying it has a steering wheel. It's just something that's expected and there's no reason not to have it.



Best of luck.

I would say to try to access a shop that repairs them and talk to the technicians, but looks like you're in China, and I have no idea how you'd do such research there. But you managed to find us, so maybe there's a site for loader repairers that you can tap into.
