Visitors to the Wacker Neuson exhibition area will be able to see the entire zero emission portfolio, which will be expanded at Bauma to include a number of machines and services – such as special zero emission financing offers, as well as 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," explains Alexander Greschner, Chief Sales Officer at the Wacker Neuson Group. "The next step for us is to offer the entire ecosystem for our customers: from charging infrastructure, services, financing offers and different usage models to a life cycle view of the battery."
Innovations in compaction
In the construction equipment sector, Wacker Neuson is unveiling an innovation at Bauma: the first reversible battery-powered plate with direct drive: APU3050e. The vibratory plate with a working width of 50 centimeters and a centrifugal force of 30 kilonewtons is notable for its excellent maneuverability and is also suitable for use in narrow trenches thanks to its low overall height. A special feature is the DireX direct drive developed by Wacker Neuson, which ensures greater efficiency: The vibratory plate does not require any V-belts. As a result, there are no transmission and friction losses, the plate is extremely low-maintenance, and offers a longer service life. A real trade show innovation is the RD28e electric roller with an operating weight of just under 2.8 tons and a drum width of 120 centimeters. The roller is powered by a powerful and proven lithium-ion battery that provides up to 3.5 hours of operating time. It is easily and quickly charged at any 230 V or 400 V socket.
Making its debut at Bauma is Battery One, a standardized and user-friendly battery system that focuses on CO2-free and sustainable use of construction equipment. The battery can be used in all battery-powered equipment from Wacker Neuson, i.e. battery-powered rammers and plates and the ACBe internal vibrator system, but can also be used in equipment from other manufacturers. The concept: A battery standard simplifies construction site operations enormously, as only one battery and one charging system need to be considered in construction site logistics.
Making its debut at Bauma 2022: the first electric telehandler from Wacker Neuson, the TH412e. It impresses with its lifting height at the hinge pin height of 4.5 meters and is a useful addition to the zero emission portfolio. Its compact design enables it to work in confined spaces without local emissions. The telehandler features a Battery Management System (BMS) that monitors the lithium-ion battery, increases its efficiency and safety, and also rules out deep discharge. The charging port at the rear of the machine is easily accessible and enables fast, uncomplicated charging. The well-known WL20e e-wheel loader has already been in series production since 2015 and will be presented at Bauma in its third generation with a powerful lithium-ion battery. In the future, customers will have the option of choosing between three battery variants. Another new feature is the option of a cab. This means the machine can be used all year round – a bonus in terms of efficiency and comfort. Another new addition to the zero emission portfolio is the DT05e track dumper. Its compact dimensions make it ideal for maneuvering and working in confined spaces. Customers can choose between a front and high tip skip.
At Wacker Neuson, the focus is on the entire zero emission construction site, which includes not only the machines and equipment, but also the charging infrastructure. At the trade fair, Wacker Neuson will be presenting the Charging Box, a power bank for the construction site. This mobile energy storage device based on lithium-ion batteries enables a continuous supply of energy. The Charging Box has an energy content of 25 kWh and an output power of 45 kVA. This means that even cable-connected devices with a high starting current can be operated without any problems. It has already been field-tested and will be available in spring 2023.
With Operate Lease, a financing solution for zero emission compact equipment, customers use the machine for the agreed term at a low monthly rate and do not commit to purchasing it. This allows them to see for themselves how the machines perform in practice and over a longer period of use. In addition to leasing the zero emission solutions, Operate Lease is another attractive way to get started working with zero emissions.
