Wacker Neuson Group presented its zero emission offerings
The Wacker Neuson Group presented its zero emission offerings which included a number of machines and services such as special zero emission financing and solutions in the field of charging infrastructure. “With our zero-emission portfolio, an entire inner-city construction site can now be operated with no local emissions,” explained Alexander Greschner, Chief Sales Officer at Wacker Neuson Group. “The next step for us is to provide the entire ecosystem for our customers - from charging infrastructure to services, financing offers, and different usage models, to a life cycle approach of the battery.”

For the first time, Wacker Neuson showcased the new TH412e electric telehandler, the RD28e electric roller, a Charging Box for mobile power supply, and the very compact DT05e dumper. Also presented was Battery One - a standardized and user-friendly battery system that focuses on carbon-free and sustainable use of construction equipment. The battery can be used not only in all battery-electric equipment from Wacker Neuson, but also in construction equipment from other manufacturers.

A highlight was the reversible battery plate APU3050e with the DireX direct drive developed by Wacker Neuson, which ensures efficiency and longer run times. In addition, the third generation of the WL20e e-wheel loader with a powerful lithium-ion battery was unveiled.

Kramer also showed innovations in the zero emission sector; in addition to the 5065e electric wheel loader, the successor to the proven 5055e, Kramer presented the 1445e E-telescopic handler – both machines rely on the latest lithium-ion battery technology.

Innovations & Practical Solutions
Wacker Neuson and Kramer demonstrated that innovation is part of their DNA. A highlight was the Wacker Neuson EW100 wheeled excavator, which heralds a new era in compact wheeled excavators. It stands out in terms of safety with its excellent sightlines and stability. The 10-ton excavator’s powerful drive hydraulics and high basic working capacity enable it to perform tasks that would otherwise require a 14-ton excavator.

In addition, the EW100 comes with all the preparations needed to implement future developments in attachment management or assistance systems simply by updating the software. This eliminates the need for complex conversions, which saves time and money and makes the machine fit for the future. Another innovation is the Dual View Dumper DV45, the smallest Dual View model. The electro-hydraulically rotatable cab can now be rotated 180 degrees forwards and backwards and 90 degrees to the side at the touch of a button on the joystick. In this “Multi View” mode, the DV45 can also be driven with the cab turned sideways.

Wacker Neuson also showcased numerous highlights in the construction equipment sector, including the extremely lightweight BH40 gasoline breaker. With the 20-kg breaker, Wacker Neuson is offering the lightest gasoline breaker with well-known high performance.

Kramer presented its full range of all-wheel steering wheel loaders and telescopic loaders and, as a highlight, the fully hydraulic “Smart Attach” quickhitch system. With Smart Attach, attachments with hydraulic auxiliary functions, such as a sweeper or folding bucket, can be coupled and uncoupled in seconds without the operator having to leave the cab. This saves time and costs. Operation of the quickcoupler system remains as simple as ever and is carried out via the joystick directly from the cab. The special feature of the Kramer system is that existing attachments can continue to be used due to the consistent dimensions of the quick change plate. The Smart Attach attachments also fit corresponding Kramer wheel loaders in the existing portfolio. The Kramer telescopic loader series from 3 to 5.5 tons payload was also presented.

Real Benefits through Digitalization
The new assistance system for concrete consolidation from Wacker Neuson – ConcreTec - enables concrete components to be compacted easily and transparently and in high quality in a reproducible manner. Wacker Neuson’s cloud-based software solution EquipCare Pro enables customers to manage, schedule, and evaluate all telematics-based machines, implements, and construction site equipment, regardless of manufacturer or brand, thus boosting productivity of their machine fleet.

The company’s mixed reality “Smart Glasses” have already been implemented for real-world use in South Africa since the beginning of the year. When a customer needs help, the dealer’s service technician, equipped with the Smart Glasses, can connect live with the experts, and share his view of the machine or transfer the support screen to the glasses.

Digitalization also plays an important role in the development of machines: The new EW100 wheeled excavator includes an intelligent Attachment Management System that supports the operator during attachment changes via the 10-inch display. For example, it automatically adjusts the machine dynamics to the attached tool.
