Wacker Neuson showed a cross-section of the product and services range with numerous innovations. The focus was on emission-free drives for various products, such as the battery-powered rammers, the electric track dumper and electric wheel loader as well as the mini-excavator with dual power (optionally diesel or electric drive).
All products have one thing in common: They can work ideally in enclosed, poorly ventilated spaces or in the urban sector without being inferior to conventional machines in terms of performance.

To make the brand even more visible on construction sites in the future, Wacker Neuson introduced a new product branding at the trade fair. The eye-catching Wacker Neuson symbol will be the dominant trademark on the products in future, which could already be seen on numerous machines at Bauma.
Further highlights were the Vertical Digging System (VDS for short) for excavators, with which the operator can compensate for uneven surfaces of up to 15° at the push of a button from the cabin and thus can work much more efficiently and more comfortably, just as the dual view concept of a 5-ton wheel dumper that was presented for the first time, which the operator can use to rotate the entire driver's cabin by 180° and thus (especially with a fully loaded bucket) always enjoy an unobstructed view to the front.
Within the range of compaction, Wacker Neuson presented several innovations: the rammer product range has the lowest total emissions on the market and can therefore score particularly well in poorly ventilated environments, such as in trench applications.
Wacker Neuson also introduced a new series of heavy plates that can optionally be ordered with a center pole or a remote control and that are above all characterized by uncompromising functionality and performance. Wacker Neuson therefore offers the broadest range of plates on the market, of which most walk-behind models have such low hand-arm vibrations that the documentation duty is no longer required of the contractor.
Furthermore, Wacker Neuson could score with its broad offering of services rendered, which ranges from individual financing solutions to maintenance and repair to rental and used machines. The quick availability of original spare parts, accessories and attachments increases the flexibility of the customers. The company therefore acts as a solution provider and reliable partner for customers from around the world.
The Wacker Neuson E-store will act as a supplementary information and sales instrument in the future. In this way, the company can meet customer requirements in a more targeted manner and at the same time take into consideration the growing importance of Internet research.
Via the Wacker Neuson E-store, customers can very conveniently find information on products, spare parts, accessories and services as well as place purchase orders at any time. Currently, the E-store is available in Germany, the UK and France and will be successively rolled out in other countries.
Within the range of concrete compaction, Wacker Neuson also presented its broad product range of internal vibrators of the Basic, Economy and Premium line. The modular internal vibrator IRFUflex from the Premium line was introduced just in time for Bauma.
This consists of a universal converter that can be combined with different protective hoses and vibrator head versions. This makes it particularly economical and therefore of interest especially for rental yards and contractors with frequently changing applications
