The designation LP stands for Low Position at Weidemann. This already has a long tradition and means that the machine has a lower clear height and a low machine center of gravity. With the Hoftrac 1260LP, you can pass under 2 m without having to fold down the overhead guard. On the other hand, the loader is characterized by improved stability, which makes it unbeatable in handling heavy loads. Added to this is our Direct Wheel Drive (dwDrive), a powerful and efficient drive concept in which all four wheels are driven directly. This purely hydraulic wheel hub drive provides an increase in efficiency, excellent acceleration and thus enables lively handling and high shearing forces.
Direct Wheel Drive (dwDrive)
•With Direct Wheel Drive (dwDrive), 4 wheel hub motors are placed directly on the wheels. This means that each wheel has its own motor, which drives the respective wheel directly.
•The wheel hub motors are driven directly by the travel hydraulic pump, eliminating mechanical losses. The wheel hub motors are also protected against pressure peaks by a high-pressure safeguard. An anti-cavitation valve between the wheel hub motors optimizes the oil supply when cornering.
•This type of drive is advantageous for machines with an operating weight of up to 3 t. Due to the purely hydraulic drive, there is no power loss through axles or gears. The dwDrive also enables high thrust forces, excellent acceleration and lively driving performance.
