New emission-free products from Wacker Neuson
By Andy Brown13 September 2023
Wacker Neuson has released new products with a strong focus on equipment that is electric powered and emission-free.
One of its new launches is the new e-wheeled loader, WL28e. The OEM already has an electric wheeled loader in its product range, but the WL28e is a larger and more powerful model.
There are three lithium ion batteries available in order to cover different running time requirements for customers. An integrated Battery Management System (BMS) monitors the lithium ion battery.
According to the OEM, the ECO mode helps to extend the battery running time for longer journeys. However, if required, flexible interim charges are also possible.
New to the Wacker Neuson zero emission series is the OEMs first fully-electric operated telehandler, the TH412e. It has a lift height of the bucket swivel point of 4.5m, and the company says it performance correspond to those of a conventional diesel-operated machine.
The installed 96-Volt lithium ion battery is available in two power ratings, which means that the running and charging times can be coordinated to the work requirements of the customer. The telehandler also features a BMS that monitors the lithium-ion battery, increases its efficiency and safety, and also rules out deep discharge.
The German-based OEM has also launched its new Dual View Dumper DV45. The Dual View dumper’s innovative concept, in which the control panel can be rotated 180 degrees, is already commerically available in other models.
With the new DV45 model, the electro-hydraulic, rotatable cabin can be rotated by 180 degrees at the press of a button on the joystick.
In the Multi View mode, it is possible to work in a laterally (partially) rotated cabin, during which the operator is said to have “an ideal view of the side work area”, and can see precisely where they are loading off the material or where the machine is moving along.
An automatic skip return automatically returns the cabin at the press of a button to the initial position, during which time the operator can concentrate on driving.
Other releases include new stroke rammers, BS62-4 and BS68-4, that are said to provide an increased compaction performance thanks to the higher impact frequency and impact force, and an update to dumper models DW20, DW30, DW40, DW60, and DW90.
