A wheel loader is easy to identify, thanks to its articulated mainframe. Its use is to support the attachment at the front end of the equipment. It also has an engine and vehicle compartment that has its own transmission at the back.
Often, wheel loaders are used in scrap applications, but they can also handle other tasks. For example, they can carry a grapple and shovel bucket.
In general, wheel loaders are designed to load and transport materials. These materials must have the right attachment, such as lift forks and grapple. Unlike other pieces of equipment, wheel loaders are not made to compact or rip apart the loaded material.
Wheel loaders have four wheels and are operated on their own. They do not work like trailers that require another vehicle to push or pull them. These earthmoving machines are attached to a bucket, which is mounted at the front. Its lift arm will then raise or lower this bucket based on the need of the job site.
