Hillhead 2018: Wacker Neuson shows new zero emission machines and the unique dual view trucks

At Hillhead 2018 Wacker Neuson exhibited its brand new and unique dual view trucks along with new products from the zero emission range, which included the all-electric Zero Tail excavator EZ17e and the electric wheel dumper DW15e.

“We are very satisfied with the outcome of Hillhead exhibition, meeting professionals and having valuable conversations with experts within our industry. For us, Hillhead is the best opportunity to show visitors and customers our new products and let them experience the uniqueness and high quality of our machines”, states Richard Harrison, Managing Director of Wacker Neuson UK.

One of Wacker Neuson highlights sets new standards in terms of operator and construction site safety, flexibility and cost effectiveness. The new dual view trucks from six to ten tons of payload allow the operator to conveniently and quickly change the seat position through a 180-degree rotation of the entire seat operating console. This always gives the operator a perfect view in the direction of travel – during transport, loading and unloading. The rotation is easily accomplished from the operator's seat using a single handle to unlock the seat console and then rotate the complete console. Time-consuming turning and maneuvering are therefore no longer necessary on small confined construction sites, such as in urban areas, in tunnels, on motorway improvements or on busy roads.

In order to keep the environment around the skip in view, a rear-view camera is installed as standard in a well-protected frame. An optional front-view camera completes the perfect view. Both cameras as well as the display meet the highest protection class rating IP69 (dustproof and protection against water ingression during steam jet cleaning), making them ideal for the harsh conditions on the construction site. When compared to conventional dumpers, the dual view technology exceeds ISO 5006:2017 by 90 percent. This gives the operator an unrivalled view of the site which in turn makes the site safer in operation. Due to stronger regulations and a development towards environmental friendly alternatives Wacker Neuson pushes the development of zero emission machines for its customers, to enable them to meet emission and noise regulations and laws - especially in inner cities - now and in the future. With the EZ17e Zero Tail mini excavator, Wacker Neuson is strengthening its positon as an innovation leader in the zero emissions segment. No other manufacturer offers such a broad portfolio of electrically powered light and compact equipment. The fully electric EZ17e, powered by lithium ion batteries, performs and handles like a diesel-powered model, has zero overhang, and makes it ideal for environments where emissions and noise has to be kept to a minimum, for example in urban areas or indoors.

As the EZ17e also the new electric DW15e wheel dumper is a good choice - wherever the work should be carried out emission-free and as quietly as possible, for example next to hospitals, schools or in parks. The newest member of the zero emission family comes with all-wheel drive and 1.5 tons payload, which is particularly suitable for material transport. The DW15e is each equipped with its own electric motor for the travel drive and for the working hydraulics in order to reduce power consumption as required and independently and to minimize energy consumption. When the machine brakes or goes downhill, the energy is fed back into the battery. This is therefore not converted into heat as usual, but used to charge the battery. The maintenance-free battery is supplied with an integrated charger that can be plugged into a conventional socket. Like all other zero emission machines, the DW15e has the same dimensions and performance parameters as its conventional relative, the 1501.
