New fuel-saving excavators from Wacker Neuson
Compact models designed to deliver more productivity and fuel efficiency than previous machines
WACKER Neuson have unveiled a new range of compact excavators (six to 10 tonnes) specially developed to deliver more productivity and fuel savings (up to 20%) than its predecessor range.
These key factors have contributed to the company awarding the new excavator models with the ECO seal in recognition for its environmentally friendliness and economical product solutions.
The machines provide higher torque and an increase of the bucket’s angle of rotation to 200° helps make the new models the best in their class in terms of excavation performance across the Wacker Neuson range.
Furthermore, the excavators’ innovative kinematics allow the operator to insert the bucket further deeper into the ground, delivering significantly more power during excavating dutires. The compact units also feature a load sensing hydraulic system – also known as load independent flow control – to ensure operating speed of all movements always remain constant and independent of the load, even if multiple movements are performed simultaneously.
For added safety, the compact excavators have good all-round visibility as well as an operating view of the tracks and attachments on both sides.
With the tracked, six-tonne ET65 model, the operator can work safely and accurately in the tightest of spaces on a constructions site, thanks to a low height of just 2.5m and a width of less than 2m. The 10-tonne ET90 excavator has been designed for demanding applications, such as highway construction due to its strong hydraulic performance, high engine output and excavation power.
Also in the range is the wheeled, six-tonne EW65 excavator which has a maximum speed of 30km/h and can be operated as a carrier for equipment.
