The industry leading hydraulic system paired with pilot controlled joysticks are the back bone of the K562 for fast and smooth response time. New, simplified, hose routings and cold oil bypass valve maximize hydraulic system component reliability.


Bar saw slasher, circle saw slasher, and live heel hydraulic options enhance machine versatility for specialized job applications. Additional options such as an extended boom length, hydraulic tank vacuum pump, and standard side mirrors for maneuvering make the K562 a go-to loader for mill yards.


Stage 5 Cat® engines provide a simplified engine arrangement by reducing engine Electronic Control Modules (ECMs) from 3 to 1, new direct drive fan, and increased horse power for peak performance. Low Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) consumption lowers overall operating costs.


The Weiler control system uses the standard joysticks for stick steering and propel functionality paired with an additional foot pedal propel feature that allows the boom and stick to be used while traveling. A creep mode allows the carrier to operate at a low speed while in a high gear.


Weiler factory installation of the self propelled ready knuckleboom loader onto customer or dealer supplied carrier allows for full integration with the loader controls and factory testing to ensure maximum quality and functionality.


The fixed cab riser option raises the overall height perspective of the operator. This gives the operator better visibility when stacking high piles, loading or off loading trucks, or loading out rail cars. The riser can be manually folded over if transporting the loader off of a mill yard or other site.
