The W60C, W70C and W80C LR are the newest additions to the New Holland Construction compact wheel loader portfolio. The company says the models have been engineered to elevate efficiency, productivity and comfort for operators and owners, regardless of the jobsite or task.

“The development of these advanced CWL models was driven by our goal to enhance the operator and owner experience and the need to put more options with more versatility in their hands,” stated Dan Kakareka, product manager for New Holland Construction North America. “What’s also evident with the three new models is how they provide exceptional stability, enabling operators to handle larger loads with ease, maneuver confidently in challenging conditions and enjoy smoother travel, even on rough terrain.”

Each model delivers a distinct need for the market.

The W60C shares the same frame as the W50C but with enhanced horsepower to elevate output. Notable upgrades to horsepower and the Z-Bar boom design tailor the W60C for applications such as landscaping, material handling and snow removal.

Customers can expect the W70C to tackle the same jobs as the W60C but with more horsepower, speed and performance. With a lighter operating weight of 12,000 pounds and 74 horsepower, this model is ideal for light construction, landscaping, contracting and municipalities.

The W80C LR model is a high-speed option designed for the agricultural market. It employs a lift capacity of 10,600 pounds and an operating weight of 13,000 pounds.

All three models offer new features geared toward improved comfort and ease of operation. Updates like a new spacious ROPS/FOPS-certified cab with advanced climate control options and a fully sealed, pressurized cab to minimize noise and keep out dust help create a conducive work environment for the operator.

New Holland FleetForce Telematics comes as a factory-fit addition on all the new models. This allows fleet owners to make better use of their machine data and gain valuable insights into machine performance, fuel efficiency and ROI.

Other key features include automated boom control, creep functionality, cruise control, auto ride control for a comfortable ride on uneven surfaces, and a seven-inch monitor with multifunctional panel.

The three new CWLs are powered by a four-cylinder, 3.4L FPT Industrial F5H engine, meeting Tier IV final emission standards. With these new models, the manufacturer has eliminated the need for a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF), which significantly reduces the required downtime associated with regeneration and costly filter replacements.

The exterior design of all three models is built to make the machines compatible with more than 250 attachments, including buckets, brooms, snow blowers, bale grabbers, skid steer and CTL attachments.
