Wacker Neuson’s compact showcase
By Helen Wright10 February 2014
Wacker Neuson plans to introduce a variety of new products at ConExpo-Con/AGG 2014, including a new range of skid steer and compact tracked loaders.
It said four new vertical and radial lift models would be available through the company’s US and Canadian distributor network starting in mid-2014 – two wheeled skid steer models, the SW 24 and SW 28, and two compact tracked loaders, the ST 35 and ST 45.
Like others, the manufacturer said it would reveal more details of these new launches at the show. It said it also plans to introduce a new mini excavator in the form of the 1 tonne class 803. It said this machine could fit through standard interior doors and was available with a dual power option – it can be changed from diesel to electric power for use indoors.
Other new machines on show from the company will include an ET 20 compact tracked excavator, examples from its latest generation of vibratory rammers and new compaction control technology known as Compatec for its DPU 6555Hec reversible plate.
In addition, Wacker Neuson said it would showcase its line of heat products. These including its HI 770XHD with new gas detection system and its new HIF 690 and HIF 1200 flameless heaters, both designed for potentially hazardous environments, as well as the new HDR 155 radiant heater and E 1250 surface heater for thawing and curing applications.
