The latest addition to the expanding ride-on trowel line features a more powerful Tier IV final engine and heavy-duty hydraulic cooling system. Contactors can use this trowel to pan the floors “tight” in high ambient air temperatures.
Wacker Neuson has upgraded its 10-ft. (3 m) hydraulic ride-on trowel to reflect the demanding needs of the professional concrete contractor. The latest addition to the expanding ride-on trowel line features a more powerful Tier IV final engine and heavy-duty hydraulic cooling system. Contactors can use this trowel to pan the floors “tight” in high ambient air temperatures. The new CRT 60-74L is powered by a 74-hp Kohler, non-DPF Tier IV final engine. The boost in horsepower provides for better finishing by providing a stable, consistent engine and blade speed. The CRT 60-74L can easily maintain blade speed under a high load finishing condition. A newly improved hydraulic drive system includes a cooler to the open loop hydraulic system that keeps the overall hydraulic system temperature down, improving performance and the life of the machine.
Wacker Neuson’s CRT 60-74L provides a unique driving experience. A newly added gyro assisted steering feature compensates for any unwanted machine rotation and allows the operator to stay on a steady course with less fatigue. The unit continues to feature a power steering system. Wacker Neuson was able to combine fully hydraulic drive performance with a dual mode power steering system that makes operation more comfortable and the trowel more responsive to the operator’s command. The dual mode system allows the operators to select the response of the joysticks to meet their preference and best suit the concrete condition.
The engine power regulation system continues to be an important feature of Wacker Neuson’s 10 ft. professional rider. Similar to an automatic transmission in a car, this system will constantly monitor engine speed and adjusts the hydraulic load, allowing the unit to seamlessly run at optimal engine and blade speed for maximum power input to the concrete.
Other features that concrete finishers will appreciate include the built-in hydraulic wheel kit. This allows operators to easily raise the machine on the front and back wheels to change blades or install pans without the need of a forklift or cranes. The built-in system also allows for easier movement around the job site or shop. Operator comfort features include an electronic cruise control, adjustable seat, plenty of legroom, ergonomically positioned arm rests and simple joy stick controls, fully hydraulic blade pitch and six working lights.
Wacker Neuson’s 60-in. (152 cm), CRT 60-74L is the largest model of Wacker Neuson’s extensive concrete ride-on trowel line. Contractors and dealers will find that this new model with the latest Tier IV final turbo charged engine and additional improvements meet or exceeds competitive model’s specifications. The unit offers a high blade speed of up to 150 rpm, hydraulic blade pitch, 2-speed engine throttle and large 12-gal. (45 L) fuel tank that offers four hours of uninterrupted run time. Weighing in at 2,650 lbs. (1,202 kg), with six blades per rotor and a path width of 123-in. (312 cm), Wacker Neuson’s CRT 60-74L is an ideal machine for professional concrete contractors looking for high performance on large jobs.
