Ottawa Transportation Company Puts Their Wacker Neuson Machines to Good Use

Based out of the nation’s capital, C&C Transportation is a transportation and logistics company that has been serving clients in Ontario and Quebec for the past 20 years, but with much longer history in dairy. The company is a subsidiary of E. Cousins Ltd., which has been serving the dairy industry since 1889.

“About 2 decades ago, we decided to diversify into tow, flatbed, and dry box,” says Alain Chenier, president / co-owner, C&C Transportation. “That is when we founded C&C Transportation.”

C&C Transportation now has satellite locations in Montreal and Toronto, 55 powered units (trucks), and 110 employees. They deliver everything from dairy products to dry goods to heavy equipment. “We deliver all of the equipment for Wacker Neuson dealer, Sontrac Equipment, based here in Ottawa, as well as the Wacker Neuson warehouse in Mississauga, Ontario,” says Mr. Chenier.

The company had a backhoe that they wanted to replace with a newer machine. Obviously, they considered what Sontrac Equipment has to offer, so Alain Chenier asked Sontrac Equipment president Denis Desjardins to help find equipment solutions that meet the company’s needs.

In response, Sontrac Equipment sent over a Wacker Neuson WL60 wheel loader and a Wacker Neuson TH412 telehandler for the company to demo.

“From the first day, we loved the machines,” says Mr. Chenier. “The loader is a little smaller than the backhoe, and it has great maneuvrability; it can easily maneuvre through the yard and parking lot, around trucks and other obstacles.”
The WL60 offers the speed, payload and hydraulic flow (up to 150 l/min) to handle a variety of jobsite needs.

“The WL60 provides a versatile wheel loader with the power, performance and maneuvrability to tackle most operations of yard and loading operations. Loading, hauling, levelling and clearing snow are simple and easy with the WL60,” says Denis Desjardins.  

Powered by a 102 hp Tier 4 final engine, the WL60 is the most powerful compact wheel loader in its size class. The machine also boasts class-leading travel speeds up to 40 km/h and a class-leading hinge pin height of 3.66 m that allows for loading and unloading high-sided dump trucks and hoppers.

“The WL60 is the machine of choice when you need to get things done at a construction site,” says Wacker Neuson’s Mike Edyvean, business development manager – Construction Equipment – Ontario and Manitoba. “Best-in-class operator comfort, high efficiency with attachments and more productivity for load and carry applications thanks to the 40 km/h driveline, and a 102 hp engine makes this machine unique in its class. Plus, there is no need for DPF (diesel particulate filter) regeneration. A tiltable cabin provides stress-free maintenance, and the machine’s powder coating increases the residual value. These features contribute to the loader being a useful companion for all of our customers.”

Until recently, C&C Transportation’s WL60 primarily performed light material handling, snow removal, and lift and carry work, but it is now being used to move dirt and rocks as C&C Transportation builds a new warehouse and office on their Ottawa property.

Wacker Neuson telehandlers are high-quality, highly maneuvrable compact machines that can be equipped with numerous different attachments to increase the machine’s versatility and utilization, as well as to tailor the machine to the task at hand, making the machine more efficient and productive.

C&C Transportation found diverse and unique applications for their Wacker Neuson telehandler.

“Our mechanics love them – not only for their easy serviceability, but because they are so very useful when it comes to taking a hood off a truck when we to do any kind of engine repair,” says Mr. Chenier. “We also use them around the property to meet our other lifting needs and for loading and unloading trailers.”

The TH412 is also deployed in C&C Transportation’s towing and recovery operations, which the company began 20 years ago.

“We load the TH412 on a tilt and load tow truck, and then bring it to the scene of the accident,” says Alain Chenier. “It works great on recovering parts, by pulling or dragging parts. As well, the telehandler has the strength to lift trailers and refers (refrigerated trucks), and the telescopic booms means we can reach the heights that we need.”

“The TH412 is an ideal complement to WL60 as it is a smaller machine which increases maneuvrability in confined spaces without sacrificing on versatility and lift performance and height,” says Denis Desjardins.

“The TH412 is a very versatile machine that can be used in many applications,” says Mike Edyvean. “With a small turning radius and tremendous lifting capacities, it can be considered the Swiss army knife among telehandlers. The VLS (Vertical Lifting System) operator assistance system and an excellent view on all 4 tires provides a maximum level of operational safety, even in narrow environments.”

“I would recommend Wacker Neuson products and Sontrac Equipment to anyone,” says Alain Chenier. “Wacker Neuson provides quality equipment while Sontrac Equipment provides excellent service.”
