Page 74 of 135 75 W acker Neuson introduced its compact excavators to the North Ameri- can market in 2008 and today offers 14 models. For more than 35 years, Wacker Neuson has pioneered excavator performance, opera- tor comfort and technology in Europe. This experience and expertise is the foundation for a line of high-quality track and wheeled excavators ranging in size from 1 to 14.5 tons. There are many reasons to choose a Wacker Neuson excavator and with both tracked and wheeled machines, as well as traditional and zero tail op- tions, there is a model suited for most applications. The full line is designed to provide power, maneuverability, stability and precision that enable opera- tors to get more done with less time and effort. That makes them better for your bottom line. In addition to best-in-class performance, Wacker Neuson says it offers reliability that reduces downtime and lowers fuel consumption for greater economic advantages on the jobsite. Sophisticated cab design with thoughtfully placed controls offer the operator the conveniences they require to function efficiently during long days on the job. A closer look will reveal smaller yet important details such as one-piece booms, larger than average steel bushings and tilting cabs to offer maintenance access. Wacker Neuson also sets itself apart by offering the exclusive Vertical Dig- ging System (VDS) on select models. This allows the operator to level the house (operating platform) of the excavator up to 15 degrees to compen- sate for uneven terrain and digging conditions. No matter what the appli- cation or rigors of the site, Wacker Neuson excavators handle attachments and ground conditions effort- lessly, says the company. Wheeled excavator models are the ultimate urban excava- tors. Offering the features cus- tomers have come to expect from a Wacker Neuson exca- vator, mounted on a wheeled platform, these machines are ideal for municipalities and utility contractors. With top speeds of 18.6 mph, the op- erator can quickly travel to, from and around the jobsite. This greatly reduces or elimi- nates time and costs associat- ed with traditional truck and trailer transport. Wacker Neuson excavators are backed by the industry's best and only five-year warranty, says the com- pany. The coverage includes a two-year/2,000-hour (whichever comes first) manufacturer standard warranty, plus an additional three years or up to five years/5,000 hours for the powertrain and hydraulics.

"Look for quality components that are proven to provide the pow- er, maneuverability, stability, as well as comfort you expect. These machines, along with excellent service access, should come with a comprehensive warranty that provides peace of mind that your machine will provide you years of service." *Wheeled.
