Dual-power excavator for indoor/outdoor use

Wacker Neuson excavator has dual power, two drive systems for indoor/outdoor use.

Wacker Neuson two-drive excavator.

The demand for machines with low emissions, ergonomic operation and less vibrations is increasing continuously. At the same time, however, versatility in use and economic efficiency also play a major role.

To address those needs, Wacker Neuson has developed the Eco HPU8 power system that offers a conventional diesel drive system as well as an emission-free electro-hydraulic drive system for the compact excavator 803.

The additional drive unit is an electro-hydraulic generator that is separately connectible to the excavator. The compact excavator is thus permanently suitable for indoor use as well as for conventional outdoor construction sites – a concept that pays for itself quickly, Wacker Neuson sources report.

The unit allows 360-degree freedom of movement in both modes of power. The proven diesel drive of the compact excavator remains unchanged.
