New engine already low emission according to Euromot 5 The new installation height of the cab also meant that a new engine was required. Cologne-based engine manufacturer, Deutz, is providing the in-line four-cylinder engine block. The powerful and smooth-running unit supplies, on the one hand, the hydrostatic drive and, on the other, the hydraulic lifting system via two hydraulic pumps. In addition, the state-of-the-art engine fully complies with the Euromot 5 emission standard while the previous drive unit conformed only with Euromot 4 low emission criteria. For new working machines, Euromot 5 is mandatory as from the beginning of next year. Steplessly and thus without any tedious gear changes, the Wiesel is set in motion. Likewise, the direction of travel can be changed just as conveniently through one-handed joystick operations. The driver´s arm rests on a pulse pad and is thus in a relaxed position throughout. The smoothness of the engine in combination with the cabin design also ensures an overall lower noise level in the cab itself according to driver Brandt. 4 /8

Powerful hydraulics facilitate quick lifting and lowering operations The second hydraulic circuit drives the lifting frame system. Four single-stage cylinders complete with automatic-hydraulic parallel lift raise the lifting frame by five centimetres per second. The high operating speed is a major benefit because time is everything when it comes to goods handling - the logistics machine must not come to a standstill! "At the lifting frame in particular, you notice the improved performance of the hydraulics thanks to the new engine. Lifting and lowering procedures are so much faster. We certainly work much more efficiently with the new Wiesel", reports Kaspar. For optimum illumination at the rear, KAMAG has installed LED working lights attached to extendable arms fitted on both sides of the cabin rear wall. As a result, they do not protrude beyond the width of the vehicle when they are not required. Using stair access with two steps, the driver reaches the lifting frame, for example, in order to plug in the connections for the brake and air supply. "It's child´s play to access the connections", says Philippe Brandt who, as a trained mechatronics technician, cares deeply about the technically perfect condition of the working equipment. Lightning fast service is a matter of course at KAMAG Apart from regular vehicle maintenance, almost no other work is required to be carried out on the highly reliable Wiesel. In addition, KAMAG has extended the maintenance intervals with the introduction of the new engine. A situation that for vehicle operator Kaspar is particularly pleasing because this means low running costs. If, however, repairs are necessary or a wear part must be replaced, then the past has shown that KAMAG has always acted in the best interests of the customer. "If necessary, the vehicle manufacturer will deliver the required component to the partner workshop in twelve hours", says Kaspar.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
