Wacker Neuson's Improved Wheeled Excavator

Wacker Neuson’s next generation replacement for the 9503 wheeled excavator, the EW 100, features a more powerful engine, significantly reduced turning radius, increased digging depth and simplified operation. 

The EW 100 is powered by a 117-hp Perkins 854 Turbo Engine, a 4-cylinder, 3.4 liter engine delivering more horsepower and torque than the previous engine. The Tier 4 interim engine uses a common rail fuel injection system, charge-air cooler and diesel particulate filter (DPF) and delivers 15% more power with 17% lower fuel consumption compared to its predecessor.

WN EW 100It can drive at up to 25 mph and, with a new all-wheel steer system providing a 13-foot turning radius, the excavator is maneuverable on tight, urban job sites.

The new EW 100 can dig deeper and reach farther than its predecessor, improving overall productivity. The upgrade includes a new boom that has a 24-foot reach and dig depth of more than 14 feet. 

Simple operation was a key design requirement for the new EW 100. It starts with a single driving pedal and easy transitions between the different operating modes and speed settings. Operators will also appreciate the new easy to use dial control system. Using this automotive-style feature, operators can easily select and save the auxiliary hydraulic flow settings depending on the attachment, eliminating the need for manual adjustments. The EW 100 also delivers improved operator comfort with air conditioning, automatic climate control, new joysticks and a simplified layout making it easier to operate for longer periods of time.
