Compact design, low centre of gravity, tight turning radius and powerful performance – these features have characterised the Hoftrac series for years and still determine the immense success of the machines. The Hoftracs effortlessly fulfil any work task and work quickly, flexibly and safely – a Hoftrac is simply always ready for use.





Weidemann articulated pendulum joint

The backbone of the Weidemann design. The legendary articulated pendulum joint. All four wheels are in constant contact with the ground and the machine moves with maximum traction. This also makes the machine uniquely manoeuvrable.

High quality powder coating

Quality creates added value. A key feature of the Weidemann quality standard is the powder coating, which offers excellent corrosion protection. In contrast to the conventional wet painting, it greatly increases the service life of the machine and is therefore more efficient and also environmentally friendly.

Two strong lift cylinders

Weidemann always installs two lift cylinders in all Hoftrac and wheel loader models. This guarantees that the load distribution is always optimally transferred to the loading arm. In addition, the entyre loading system gains stability. The size of the lift cylinder is adapted to the respective size of the machine.

Perfectly matched P-kinematics

The angled loading arm is designed to be particularly sturdy and torsion resistant. At Weidemann, the kinematics are adjusted to the size of the machine – this ensures optimal balances of power for every machine. The advantage of P-kinematics lies in the exact parallel motion across the entyre lifting area.

Large selection of attachment tools

Use your machine as a multi-tool – you have a wide selection of attachments available for your Weidemann.

Large selection of tyres

The optimal tyres for every subgrade – you have a wide selection of different tyres available for your Weidemann.
