Hinrich Weyhausen KG was founded by Heinrich Weyhausen in 1919 as a trading company. The production of agricultural machinery began in 1921. The first hydraulic excavator was manufactured in 1950. In 1986, the Atlas trademark, under which the products were manufactured, became part of the company name - Atlas Weyhausen GmbH.
In 2002, the line of construction equipment was sold to Terex Corporation. The machines were produced under the Atlas-Terex brand. In 2010, Atlas-Terex production was acquired by Atlas Maschinen GmbH, a spin-off from Atlas Weyhausen GmbH.
Atlas Weyhausen is currently a group of companies that includes ATLAS Weyhausen GmbH and F. Weyhausen AG & Co. KG. Both are legally independent, independent organizations, but they provide their products under a unified brand name. The range of manufactured equipment includes frontal mini-loaders and rollers.
Perfection of ATLAS tracked excavators
ATLAS is a manufacturing company that, along with wheeled excavators, manufactures caterpillar machines. This device is used to carry out all sorts of difficult work, mainly earthwork. And what is characteristic is that the type of soil is absolutely not important for such a machine. And this is always a full-revolving unit, which in its work ensures reliability, quality and efficiency of the result. This performance is made possible by the full cab revolution (with working bucket). And the unique design of this device can easily perform work on any type of terrain. In urban conditions, despite the caterpillar equipment, the device can also be used for digging trenches or backfilling pits.
this type of mechanism is represented by a tracked vehicle;
all types of crawler excavators are equipped with a working bucket with a volume of 0.45 to 2.5 m3. And some models are also equipped with working bodies (buckets) with increased performance.
The lineup of these machines differs in the following characteristics:
wheel drive type;
cab turn (radius);
reserve and power of the course
type of chassis (wheeled or tracked, in this case we are considering all tracked excavators).
Also, as an addition, attachments (hydraulic hammer, hydraulic drill, blade, digger of trenches and foundation pits or loading bucket) are put on these Atlas devices. And in order to determine the right model, you need to know the technical characteristics of each modification of tracked equipment that Atlas produces.
