All wheel drive buggy for muddy sites
25 March 2008
Multiquip has launched the WPB-16EAWD, an all wheel drive power buggy with a 16 m3 (453 l) capacity, allowing operators to transport concrete and other materials around a job even in difficult soil conditions.
The WPB-16EAWD's traction assist valve allows users to activate the all-wheel drive by flicking a switch, without having to restart the engine. Driven by a 13,4 kw Vanguard engine, the power buggy can load up to 2500 lb (1125 kg) of material on dual wheels and 1000 lb (450 kg) on single wheels and can run for up to 8 hours with a 5,5 gallon (21 l) fuel tank.
It also features a 6 in (15,2 cm) dump height and offers an 8 to 10% dumping angle, a hydrostatic drive system, multiple lift points for easy loading, a fully hydraulic dump action that can be controlled by hand lever or foot pedal, and removable tyres for access to narrow work areas.
