The Kramer wheel loader KL38.5 while transporting straw bale with a bale spike.

Wheel loader KL38.5 - The powerhouse rooted to the soil

The machine KL38.5 is impressive due to its intuitive operation and high payload. The bucket capacity of 0.95 to 1.5 m³ with a low overall height characterise the machine in this size category. The efficient high-pressure drive system enables high tractive effort. Additionally, the optional fast speed opens up more application areas.

Benefits at a glance

  • Long loading system: An extended mast is available, making the machine more flexible in terms of reach and stacking height
  • P-Kinematics: Combines high lifting and tearing forces with precise parallel guidance of the loading system over the entire lifting range
  • Traction: The switchable 100 % differential lock in the front axle enables optimum traction
  • Smart Driving: When the maximum speed is reached, the motor speed is automatically reduced
  • Hydraulics: The working hydraulics are supplied by powerful gear pumps, which enable fast working cycles of the loading equipment


All-wheel steering

  • High stability even with full steering angle thanks to the undivided frame
  • Maximum maneuverability thanks to steering angles of up to 40° on the front and rear axles
