Wacker Neuson

Like most companies adapting to these challenging times, Wacker Neuson shifted its annual in-person dealer meeting into the digital world. On Oct. 20, 2020, the construction equipment manufacturer presented the latest company news, outlook and product information through an interactive Zoom Webinar.

Wacker Neuson's battery-powered rammers, plates and backpack vibrator are real game changers, according to the manufacturer. These zero-emission compaction and concrete consolidation products provide an alternative power source for indoor applications and job sites with noise and emission guidelines.

In 2019, Wacker Neuson introduced its largest articulated wheel loader model, the WL95, and has additional models planned for later in 2020. The WL95 has received excellent reviews for its performance and high payload in a compact design, allowing operators to load, move and place material more efficiently, according to the manufacturer.

Wacker Neuson's dual view dumpers bring a new perspective to material handling. The unique concept allows the entire operator's console to swivel 180 degrees so the operator is always facing the task. Now available in North America, the DV series of dumpers provide optimal visibility, regardless of the working direction or payload size, according to the manufacturer.

Wacker Neuson has expanded its growing skid steer and compact track loader line with a selection of 100-hp models. The SW32 skid steer and ST40 and ST50 compact track loaders bring maximum power and efficiency to the job site. These new models have been optimized to provide more working power to achieve faster cycle times when pushing or digging heavy materials.

Wacker Neuson is now offering a triple boom configuration on select models of its excavator line. The mobile excavators, EW65 and EW100, will feature a standard triple boom while the ET90 tracked model will offer it as an optional configuration. While triple booms are more common on larger excavators and in Europe, compact models such as the 6.5-ton EW65 are more unique to the United States and Canadian marketplace.

Wacker Neuson is introducing a new 4.2-ton excavator that offers large machine features in a smaller package. The ET42 conventional track excavator is an excellent fit for the North American market and was designed with voice-of-customer research to assure that the performance and features offered meet the operator's demands, according to the manufacturer.

A popular New England tourist attraction is undergoing major changes. Work is under way on a new seal exhibit and 4D theater at Connecticut's Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk, in response to the scheduled reconstruction of a railroad bridge adjacent to the facility.

Wacker Neuson's ConExpo/Con-AGG 2020 show theme, ALL ACCESS TOUR, features new and traditional products that encompass the company's full line of construction equipment. The music festival layout of the booth (F2548) features four music genre stages designed to play well with the ConExpo/Con-AGG theme, "The only heavy metal show you need to see." "Each of the stages in our booth will feature Wacker Neuson equipment that coincides with a musical genre and includes interactive video kiosks to show the equipment in action," explained Gert Reichetseder, Wacker Neuson CEO and president of North America.

Through its acquisition of Wacker Neuson Group's ride-on and walk-behind trowels, Husqvarna can support contractors the whole way through pouring concrete to a finished floor — no matter the type, size or ambition level of the project. "Power trowels complement our current range in a great way, connecting the entire process from ground compaction to polished concrete floors, and fits well into our divisional strategy to grow our concrete surfaces and floors business.
