The compact KL12.5 while transporting dung.

Wheel loader KL12.5 - The compact wizard with best dimensions

With a very compact design, KL12.5 is a desired helper in work done in narrow spaces. Given its height, the machine can be used in several ways and therefore facilitates applications in buildings or while driving on pavements. Due to its very low net weight, the wheel loader can be transported without any problems on 3.5 t trailers.
