The 8085T is the only all wheel steer loader with a telescopic boom available and with an extended reach of over 15 feet, the applications are endless for loading, stacking and dumping materials. Because of the all wheel steer design with a constant center of gravity in the middle of the machine, the 8085T is extremely stable and provides a constant payload regardless of whether the machine is going straight or turning.
The 8085T is available with a standard travel speed of 12.4 miles per hour with 19 gallons per minute auxiliary flow making it an excellent machine to use on a variety of job sites with most standard attachments. The 8085T has the option of high speed/high flow that allows it to travel up to 25 miles per hour, the fastest wheel loader in its class. With the high flow auxiliary hydraulics of 30 gallons per minute, this 8085T is ideal for operating high performance attachments such as blowers, brooms and mowers. The high flow edition comes standard with a manual travel speed and manual throttle control to more efficiently operate hydraulic attachments.
Wacker Neuson’s new 8085T also offers three steering modes that sync electronically. (Previously, all wheel steer units were all wheel steer all the time.) With the 8085T, operators can change between 2-wheel mode for faster forward travel speed to all wheel drive for travel over rough terrain, and to crab steer that moves the machine horizontally in order to fine-tune placement in tight spaces. The operator can simply change the steering mode with the flip of a dashboard switch and the machine will automatically synchronize to the desired steering mode.
Adding to this machine’s versatility is the hydraulically operated universal attachment plate which enables the operator to quickly switch attachments without leaving the operator’s station, saving time and extra effort. In addition, the universal plate allows owners to use their current or new skid steer attachments on this versatile wheel loader which increases their return on investment and provides new job opportunities.
The 8085T wheel loader features a long wheelbase for smooth driving and easy handling. The center of gravity located in the center of the machine and counterweights located far behind the rear axle allow for higher payloads and increased stability. The deluxe cab takes operator comfort to a new level with extra space, air-ride seats, premium HVAC and a panoramic view all standard.
The 8085T is powered by a Tier 4 Final, 74-horsepower Deutz diesel engine with maintenance-free DOC after treatment that provides power and efficient operation. Weighing in at 12,236 pounds, the 8085T has a tipping load of 6,435 pounds and extended reach height to the hinge pin of 15-feet, 5-inches. When extra reach is needed, such as placing materials in flower beds, snow removal to free up parking lot space and stacking construction and agriculture materials, the 8085T allows you to move the load further and faster.
