The Kramer Expert Days were held on the 29th and 30th of May at Kramer’s Pfullendorf plant. Several hundred visitors accepted an invitation to experience this medium-sized construction machine manufacturer’s range of machines up-close and personal.
The Expert Days have long since been a tradition at Kramer, and this year was no exception. “Kramer is constantly expanding its product portfolio. Developments, such as the new 5055e, an all-wheel-steered electric wheel loader and a world first in its size class, always give us a reason to invite our dealers and customers to come and take a look. It is more important than ever that we are able to demonstrate to interested parties and customers the possibilities and scope of use that our machines can offer,” says Karl Friedrich Hauri, management spokesman of Kramer-Werke GmbH.
As well as a vast static exhibition of the full product range, from wheel loaders and telescopic wheel loaders to telehandlers in various fields of application, great emphasis was also placed on the machine experience. Guided plant tours through one of Europe’s most cutting-edge production facilities in operation were very popular. However, the demo shows that took place regularly over the two days also attracted visitors’ attention.
The e-wheel loader, hugely popular with customers, was the focal point of the event. The world’s first all-wheel-driven electric wheel loaders in the 0.65 m³ size class was explained in detail at one station, batteries were carefully examined and experiences exchanged. Participants also had the opportunity to test the e-wheel loader 5055e on a test track and demonstrate their skill with the machine. “We have been manufacturing the 5055e as standard for a year now and we are consistently receiving positive feedback from the industry. Tunnel construction work or inner-city applications are just some examples of the benefits of the emission-free and noiseless wheel loader,” explains product manager Daniel Fechtig.
The aim of these Expert Days was to enter into dialogue with the customer and to present the Kramer brand and product portfolio to dealers and their customers. “We are very pleased with the feedback that we have had from this year’s Expert Days. The concept has once again proved its worth and we are sure that many projects will be generated on the back of this event,” says Karl Friedrich Hauri in summary.
