This year’s Bauma, which was under the motto “#electrifiedbauma” for Kramer and Wacker Neuson, was as usual the most important industry platform for exchanging ideas with customers and interested parties and convincing them of the machines’ performance efficiency and quality. “Once again, Bauma has proven that forward-looking topics and technologies of the construction industry are presented and discussed here.
At Bauma 2019, Kramer once again set new standards in the construction industry through innovative machine concepts, digitisation projects and the latest drive technologies,” says Karl Friedrich Hauri, managing director of Kramer-Werke GmbH.
At the trade fair, Kramer also announced that graduate engineer Christian Stryffeler would take over the management of Karl Friedrich Hauri in July 2019. Since January of this year, Christian Stryffeler is part of Kramer management and active in the construction machines industry since 2004. Karl Friedrich Hauri retires after almost 20 years from Kramer.
"Services generating added value and extraordinary experiences are increasingly coming to the fore among customers. That is why we are particularly proud that we were able to present interactive digitisation projects to Bauma visitors this year, such as our virtual reality cabin simulator or the new telematics offer EquipCare, in order to meet their expectations and needs,” says Christian Stryffeler. “Of course the first all-wheel steer electric wheel loader, the 5055e, which won the innovation award at Bauma 2016, was also there. All in all, Bauma was a complete success”, adds Stryffeler.
Transporting made easy – the 5050 with Smart Ballast
Kramer exhibited a special innovation with the new wheel loader 5050, which is characterised by its very low dead weight with up to 2,650 kg and a tipping load of up to 1,700 kg. Additional weights, called “Smart Ballast” at Kramer, which can easily and unobtrusively be attached to the rear of the machine, make it possible to adjust the weight or the tipping load, depending on the user requirement. The adjustability guarantees machine transport on a 3.5 ton trailer. Due to the nature of the machine and the easy and lower priced transport capability, the opportunity for using the 5050 lies mainly in gardening and landscaping.
Machines with the exhaust emission stage V are available at Kramer since the beginning of 2019. Kramer is one of the first manufacturers to present machines that comply with the fifth stage of the European emission legislation as early as 2019 – these include the wheel loader 5065 from the 5-series and the 8095 from the Kramer premium series, which were presented at Bauma 2019. These Kramer machines already fulfil the stricter limit values for particulates and nitrogen oxides. With the introduction of the level V in Europe's mobile working machines, the world's highest emission standards are launched.
