WE2350 Wheel Loaders

Have a massive amount of material to move? Then the WE2350 is your machine. The world's largest wheel loader, it’s designed to center load ultra-class 400+ ton trucks with ease. And it does so with remarkably fast cycle times, and at a fraction of the initial cost of large excavators.

  • 1,715 kW / 2,300 HP
  • 266,259 kg
  • 40.52 m³

Fuel efficient SR Hybrid Drive

The SR Hybrid Drive system is fully regenerative. During braking or retarding, electrical motors become generators and feed power back into the electrical system. This allows for up to 45% less fuel consumption than comparably sized mechanical drive wheel loaders. 

Largest available payload option

Built for productivity. The L-2350 wheel loader can center load haulage trucks with payload ratings ranging from 320 to 400+ tons.

Attuned to operator comfort

The spacious, environmentally controlled cab offers great visibility, a comfortable ride and room for a trainer seat. Digital joysticks give your operators easy and responsive control, while the highly adjustable, heated/cooled seat helps minimize driver discomfort.
