Application area 


The L500 was used for loading gravel, excavated material, snow, etc. It was also used in the sawmill industry where it was a popular all-round machine, partly thanks to its long reach.




The L500 wheel loader was based on the Z1/Z2 tractor and succeeded the tractors with front end loaders used earlier. The L500 had loading units with parallel linkage, which attracted attention at this time, and made it particularly suitable and appreciated in pallet handling. The wheel loader on display came to the Munktell Museum in 2006 after a thorough renovation from the company's facilities in Konz.
