Wacker Neuson’s Dual View dumpers receive Rental Product of the Year.
Dual View allows the operator to conveniently and quickly change the seat position through a 180-degree rotation of the entire operator control panel and the seat console. This always gives the operator a perfect view in the direction of travel – during transport, loading and unloading. The three models with a payload of six to ten tons have now been awarded the European Rental Award in the category of Rental Product of the Year in an award ceremony that was held online on 30 June 2020.
Alexander Greschner, CSO of the Wacker Neuson Group, accepted the award and thanked the company in his video message: “I am delighted that our Dual View dumper has been awarded Rental Product of the Year 2020. Dual View is the result of very close collaboration with our customers, particularly rental companies, who have accompanied us throughout the entire product development process. With these dumpers, we are setting new standards in terms of operator and construction site safety, flexibility and economy – and that makes our Dual View dumpers ideal for rental companies”.
The Dual View dumpers DV60, DV90 and DV100 provide unrestricted view in every situation. The seat console and the control panel can be rotated conveniently from the operator’s seat by simply unlocking the console and then turning it to define the direction of view and travel. Dual View unfurls its strengths in particular on small confined construction sites, such as in urban areas, in tunnels or on busy roads: The operator steers the wheel dumper with the skip in the travel direction on the construction site, loads or unloads it with a full view of the loading area and, after a 180-degree rotation of the seat, drives away again in the same way with a free line-of-sight without having to turn the vehicle. In this way, he always has the working environment in full view, which means significantly more safety. Even a fully loaded skip no longer blocks the view, because the operator leaves the skip behind during travel, as with a truck.
Other time-tested and proven safety features, such as the hydrostatic drive, the wear-free spring-loaded parking brake, as well as the operation via joystick, which can be used to guarantee that the operator always keeps a hand on the steering wheel, ensure the simple and intuitive operation of the Dual View dumpers.
