The latest excavators from Wacker Neuson save up to 20
percent fuel with higher performance to score significant-
ly well in terms of economic and profitable work.
With features such as the load sending hydraulic system
for a simple and precise operation, innovative kinematics
for powerful excavation and a revised machine and cabin
design for an improved all-around visibility of the entire
working area, Wacker Neuson will be setting standards for
precise and efficient work.
Gert Reichetseder, managing director of Wacker Neu-
son Linz GmbH explains:
"The customer and his daily challenges are the
focus of the design and development work at
Wacker Neuson. This is clearly reflected in our
new models of excavators. Technical innovations
provide both a simple and intuitive operation of
the machines as well as efficiency and profitability
in application, especially in tight spaces.
"Above all, high fuel savings of 20 percent
compared to previous models and simultaneous
higher productivity were decisive to all models be-
ing awarded the ECO seal immediately. "
Improved Visibility for the Operator
A good all-around visibility as well as a view of the tracks
and attachment on both sides is indispensable for safe op-
eration and quick working in the construction site sector.
Due to the lateral offset of the boom, as well as the
rounded valve hood to the front, the new excavators meet
A higher torque and the increase of the bucket's angle
of rotation to 200 degrees contribute to improved excava-
Up to five auxiliary control circuits are available with
the new models: the fast, continuous adjustment of the
individual circuits takes place via a "jog dial," a system
that is known from
the automotive in-
age, as well as set-
tings, of attachments can therefore be performed without
any problems, even during operation.
A 3.5 inch display allows for convenient control of all
equipment functions. In connection with a 7-inch display
that is optionally available, the ET65, EW65 and ET90 ex-
cavators can also be equipped with a rear view camera.
Compact dimensions, wide reach
With the new 6 ton track excavator ET65, the operator
can work safely and accurately even in the tightest of
spaces on the construction site, since the excavator is ex-
tremely compact and manoeuvrable - a low height of just
2.5 meters and a width of less than two meters.
There is an optionally articulated boom for more flex-
ibility, extra reach, digging depth and dumping height.
The ET90 10-ton track excavator is among the market
leaders in terms of performance with excellent engine
and hydraulic performance.
On the go on its own axles
Wacker Neuson is introducing another model in the 6-ton
range with the EW65 wheeled excavator.
It is characterized by the infinitely variable drive sys-
tem up to a maximum speed of 30 km/h in combination
with compact dimensions.
The wheeled excavator is also an optimal equipment
carrier: This is ensured by five control circuits (three are
adjustable), load sending hydraulics and a closed driving
circuit for optimal synchronization and no impairments
between the working and driving circuit.
