Wacker Neuson at Plantworx 2017

Wacker Neuson at Plantworx 2017

For the third time, Wacker Neuson exhibits at trade fair Plantworx.

At the booths K1 and K2, highlights like the cabbed dumper DW90 with the new optional safety system OPS+ and the ET90 excavator with excellent engine and hydraulic performance as well as the award-winning electric wheel loader WL20e will be presented.

“We are looking forward to Plantworx as we will have the opportunity to show our products and service solutions to a professional audience there”, said Richard Harrison, Managing Director Wacker Neuson UK.

“A highlight at the Wacker Neuson booths will be the electric wheel loader WL20e which has been awarded “Highly Commended” in the Environmental Innovation category of the Plantworx Innovation Awards 2017.

We are very happy about this honor, as it is a confirmation by industry experts that Wacker Neuson is taking the right steps towards the future with its zero emissions line.”

With two electric motors, one for the drive system and one for the operating hydraulics, the wheel loader WL20e works purely electrically. The two electric motors ensure that the performance features of the wheel loader with a bucket capacity of 0.2 cubic meters match those of the conventional machine.

Contractors who opt for the compact battery-powered wheel loader therefore do not need to compromise in terms of performance, but can benefit from the advantage of zero emissions. This saves costs, ensures higher machine utilization and expands the application areas of the wheel loader considerably.

Zero emissions is becoming increasingly important, for example on construction sites in urban areas, and when working indoors, such as in greenhouses, during building restorations or in parking garages.

Another big topic at the Wacker Neuson booths: The new cabbed dumpers can be equipped with OPS+ – OPS stands for additional operator protection system. An additional protection frame can be fitted to all cabbed Wacker Neuson dumpers, which will offer the operator greater protection in the event of machine overturn or frontal machine impact.

Also on display: The 10-ton track excavator ET90 with improved engine and hydraulic performance. The fuel consumption of the ET90 is up to 30 percent lower than with comparable models, which reduces the operating costs significantly.

This efficient combination provides for first-class digging power with up to 20 percent more bucket breakaway force. Conversely, the economical load sensing hydraulic system allows for finely controllable lifting arm movements with a full performance at the same time. Whether power or precision – the ET90 is the right excavator for any application, even for highly demanding jobs.
