Wacker Neuson’s 550 Compact Wheel Loader features a 4-wheel steer system that delivers maneuverability and a rigid frame design that produces stability. Additionally, the long wheelbase on the new 550 offers smooth driving and easy handling even across the roughest terrain. The 550 AWS model is powered by a 47-horsepower Tier 4i diesel engine. The powerful engine allows the unit to offer a high drive force for digging and moving materials efficiently. This also sets the stage for the addition of an optional high performance high flow, which allows for increased hydraulic horsepower to run larger attachments such as snow blowers, brooms and trenchers. A faster travel speed option also is available providing up to 19.5 mph. It is available with canopy or cab. Both versions offer a spacious and functional layout designed for operator comfort. The cab model provides a roomy work area with heat and air conditioning for added operator comfort.
