What is a wheel loader?

Wheel loaders are known by many names, such as front-end loaders, front-end loaders, wheel loaders, bucket loaders, shovel loaders and dump loaders. A wheel loader is a heavy-duty piece of equipment that is typically used on construction projects and building sites. A wheel loader uses an arm to raise and lower its bucket, and a crank to open and close its bucket. A wheel loader can lift almost anything, such as debris, gravel, dirt, mud, pallets, etc. Because it uses wheels, it offers better maneuverability on the road and does not cause any damage to asphalt or concrete. Attachments are also available to make it suitable for any type of project you have.
