3 excavators ET18, ET20 andET24 during excavation work

Tracked conventional excavator ET18: Overall performance that’s impressive

With the excavator ET18, Wacker Neuson sets new standards in the 1.7 to 2.4 metric ton class. The combination of time-tested and proven elements and intelligent development approaches are demonstrated in the extra performance and efficiency. Well thought-out features such as a large cabin and the two-part front windshield mechanism also increase the operator’s comfort.

Powerful drive system

  • Thanks to the high performance of the drive system, the maximum power of the excavator is available at every point of operation. This brings up to 30% higher power for an even better performance.

Hydraulic telescopic travel gear with dozer blade extension

  • The hydraulically telescoped travel gear with a max. outer width of 1300 mm gives stability. In no time, it can be retracted to a width of 990 mm. With the foldable dozer blade extension, this makes individual adjustment to the job site conditions possible. Meanwhile, the extension elements are always connected to the machine and thus do not get lost.

VDS Vertical Digging System

  • The vertical digging system compensates for slopes of up to 15 degrees, making it possible to vertically excavate on a slope. This is not only ergonomic for the operator, but it also saves time and also means less excavated material.
  • Up to 25 percent material and time savings when excavating and filling. Safe working and higher stability in sloping spaces.
  • The same swing power over 360 degrees allows fatigue-free work with the seat position remaining the same.

Second cabin door for entry and exit on both sides

  • The excavator cabin can be optionally equipped with a second driver’s door. This makes getting in and out easier, especially in narrow or sloped spaces.

More Features

Thermal resistance

  • The excavator can work under full load up to an ambient temperature of 45°C/113°F. The stable temperature level results in a longer service life for the hydraulic components and increases productivity.
  • Lower temperature level - longer life, work without loss of performance.
