There’s More To Wacker Neuson Than Just Rammers

Wacker Neuson

Wacker Neuson is globally recognised as a leading manufacturer of compaction equipment. But “there’s a lot more to Wacker Neuson than meets the eye”! A number of new products will be released at Diesel Dirt & Turf 2018 by Wacker Neuson “the innovator”.

Wacker Neuson are once again exhibiting at Diesel Dirt & Turf in 2018 (Sites 2 and 128).

On display will be a wide variety of equipment from Wacker Neuson’s impressive range of German engineered products. These include internal and external vibrators for concrete compaction; trowels and screeds for concrete finishing; rammers, vibratory plates and rollers for soil compaction; demolition products and saws; lighting; generators; pumps; and heaters; as well as compact construction equipment, including excavators, wheel loaders, telehandlers and dumpers.


Wacker Neuson have chosen Diesel Dirt & Turf 2018 for the official new product release of their EZ80 tracked excavator. The EZ80 is the biggest zero tail excavator from Wacker Neuson.

Compact dimensions, reduced fuel consumption and high performance are united in one machine. With a digging depth of more than 4m and an efficient digging power, excavation jobs are completed quickly. Working close to walls or other environmental obstacles provides no issue for this zero tail machine in any operating position.

This and its compact design make the EZ80 the first choice excavator when it comes to narrow inner city job sites. On top of that the EZ80 also convinces with up to 20 per cent less fuel consumption and thus significantly reduced operating costs.

The latest generation of oil injected 2-stroke rammers from Wacker Neuson will also be released at Diesel Dirt & Turf 2018. These innovative rammers come with intelligent automatic systems that set the standard in terms of reliable, powerful and low-emissions compaction work. The Plus-Series rammers from Wacker Neuson provide all the advantages of their classical two-stroke rammers but additionally offer practical work facilitation as a plus. By using two separate tanks for fuel and two-stroke oil the pre-mixing is no longer necessary.

Both liquids are filled in separately and the patented oil lubrication system automatically generates the correct mixing ratio. For more safety the oil tank can be locked, which avoids a wrong refuelling. The rammers of the Plus-Series are available in three weight classes. The low centre of gravity provides strong propulsion and great stability, which prevents tilting and guarantees easy operation for the operator.


The most powerful vibratory plate with centre pole on the market comes from Wacker Neuson, the specialist in matters of compaction, will be on display. Many well thought out and intelligent features provide the pure functionality of the DPU110. The two-piece hood with a steel tube frame and detachable side panels offer a convenient maintenance access. The robust construction design provides a long-service life and great operation results. Low hand-arm vibrations of less than 2.5m/s² provide an operator-friendly ease of use compaction plate. One of the impressive features of these vibrating plates is the water cooled 3 cylinder Kohler diesel engine. These engines are equipped with an intelligent engine management system that allows for operation in ambient temperatures of up to 45 degrees Celsius.

Another innovative feature is Wacker Neuson’s “Compatec” compaction system.

The system offers a guide to reaching optimum compaction; this may help prevent premature compaction tests but also helps protect the machine from damage caused by over compaction.


Wacker Neuson will be releasing their battery powered articulated wheel loader to the Australian market at this year’s Diesel Dirt & Turf. The WL20e wheel loader model is the first purely electrically operated wheel loader from Wacker Neuson. As with all of their wheel loaders, it convinces through firstclass performance. Two electric engines, one for the drive system and one for the work hydraulics, ensure that the performance features of the WL20e correspond to those of the conventional machine. At the same time, the wheel loader works completely exhaust free and with significantly lower noise emissions. For the end user, this means greater flexibility in application, environmental protection and significant savings with operating costs. The WL20e fits perfectly into Wacker Neuson’s range of Eco products that include battery operated rammers, dumpers, loaders and duel fuel 1 tonne excavator.

Wacker Neuson’s Eco range provides 100 per cent performance, 0 per cent emissions.

Looking for a roller that really packs a punch then Wacker Neuson has the machine for you. Their recently introduced, German designed and made, articulated RD roller range is powerful and versatile rollers that will provide years of trouble-free compaction.

The new range has an offset feature that widens the width of the machine for greater productivity. Their RD18-100 is a 1.6 tonne roller and comes standard with offset drums.

With the “Offset” drums you have clear sided curb clearance that allows flush rolling on both sides and can move the roller directly up to walls or curbs. This helps to reduce the use of secondary machines to finish the asphalt project.
