GaLaBau 2014: Yellow Diversity, Green Future

Wacker Neuson and Kramer, strong brands of the Wacker Neuson Group, are exhibiting products at the joint booth 412 in Hall 7 that are “green” in a dual sense: They meet the requirements of the “green industry” and some are awarded with the ECO label, which is given to products that are particularly environmentally friendly (ECOlogy) and economical (ECOnomy).


Under the motto “Yellow Diversity, Green Future”, the Wacker Neuson Group welcomes visitors to trade fair GaLaBau in Nuremberg, Germany. The manufacturer of compact machines and light equipment is exhibiting products and solutions that will ease everyday work in gardening and landscaping. “Our comprehensive range of products and services makes us a competent partner for the green industry”, says Cem Peksaglam, CEO of Wacker Neuson SE. “Our trade show news will excite visitors to GaLaBau, for example the wheel loader WL20e which marks a big step towards electro-mobility. The battery-driven wheel loader operates completely emission-free and is particularly low-noise. In addition, Wacker Neuson has developed the first battery-powered rammers AS 30 and AS 50, which we will also be presenting to the public. Kramer is launching the first tele wheel loader with a tier IVi engine at the trade fair. There is a lot to discover at the Wacker Neuson Group booth.”

Solutions for emission-free work

With the WL20e, which has a shovel capacity of 0.2 cubic meters, Wacker Neuson is presenting the first wheel loader with an electric drive system for emission-free work. The wheel loader awarded with the Wacker Neuson ECO seal – for particularly economical and environmentally friendly products – has a similar performance as the conventional model WL20. In addition, entrepreneurs and users benefit from the advantage of zero emissions which is becoming increasingly important on construction sites in urban areas, when working indoors, such as in greenhouses, building restorations or parking garages. Once the battery is fully charged, a work application of up to five hours can take place with the wheel loader WL20e – enough time for typical applications, such as loading and transporting goods over short distances. Wacker Neuson is presenting the prototype of the wheel loader at GaLabau for the first time. The series launch is planned for the first quarter of 2015.

Also new are the battery-powered rammers AS 30 and AS 50. With compaction work in trenches in particular, the operator is thus protected from exhaust pollution – and the contractor saves considerably on operating costs: Around 63 percent in energy costs can be saved by operation with electricity. In addition, there are no typical maintenance jobs of conventional rammers with the battery-powered rammer, for example maintenance work on the carburetor. The batteries of both machines can be removed without tools so that the operator can exchange the discharged battery with a charged battery in a few simple steps. These properties, zero emissions and particular economic efficiency during operation are also reasons why the battery-powered rammers have been awarded the ECO seal by Wacker Neuson.

Also an ECO product: the Wacker Neuson excavator 803 dual power. With the dual power option, the excavator can – in addition to the standard diesel engine – be connected to the external electro-hydraulic drive unit HPU8. The excavator is driven by the unit purely electrically and entirely emission-free – a topic that is becoming increasingly important. Contractors owning the excavator 803 dual power thus have a machine that offers the features of a conventional compact diesel excavator, but at the same time, if necessary can be turned into a machine for emission-free applications – while its performance and flexibility remain unchanged. This saves costs, ensures a higher machine utilization and significantly expands the application areas of the mini-excavator.

New tele wheel loaders from Kramer

On the occasion of GaLaBau, Kramer is presenting the first tele wheel loader with a tier 3B/IVi engine. The tele wheel loader 8095T has a height of 2.8 meters and a width of below two meters. Thus, it can move in confined gardening areas without any problems. Its wheel base guarantees stability, even on uneven ground. In particular, the undivided chassis and the all-wheel steering, for which Kramer is known on the market, make the wheel loaders, tele wheel loaders and telehandlers extremely maneuverable and stable. The hydraulic quick coupler system provides for the fast and easy exchange of various attachments here, which meets the everyday needs of gardening and landscaping firms.
