Thanks to the intelligent charging management, the EZ17e from Wacker Neuson can be used battery-operated or connected to the power supply system and even be charged while being operated. This makes the EZ17e particularly suitable for environments where exhaust fumes and noise are to be avoided.
The EZ17e is powered by state-of-the-art lithium-ion technology, which has been used by Wacker Neuson for years and is constantly being developed. It is characterized by a particularly long service life. The all-electric excavator thus remains operational for a full working day.
An ordinary household power outlet (110-230V) is sufficient to charge the battery overnight. A quick charge by high voltage power supply in four hours is also possible. For the maintenance no additional training of the service personnel is necessary. This makes the electric excavator particularly attractive for rental parks.
Martin Lehner, CEO Wacker Neuson SE:
„Our many years of experience and expertise with emission-free product solutions are demonstrated by our first mini excavator with battery and electric drive.“
Completely emission-free working.
- No compromises - just as powerful as our diesel mini excavators
- Batteries of the latest lithium-ion technology installed in the rear
- Integrated charger - charging at any regular or high voltage power outlet
- Up to 5 hours self-sufficient operating time in power mode and up to 7 hours in ECO mode
- Extended range of applications: interior, emissions- and noise-restricted areas such as inner cities and residential areas
- Zero tail excavator without rear overhang for working close to walls and other restrictions
The mini excavator is also a zero tail excavator, designed without rear overhang. Thus, the operator does not need to worry that he will damage the machine or the surroundings while working near the walls or in confined spaces.
The rear of the electric excavator never reaches beyond the undercarriage. This makes the EZ17e ideal for use in tunneling, demolition and renovation work in a small spaces or for interior restorations: here a powerful machine with compact dimensions is required, which can be operated without exhaust emissions.
All hydraulic functions have the same performance level as the conventional model. The battery is integrated in the existing engine compartment. The weight is almost identical to the diesel version, so the EZ17e can also be easily transported on a trailer.
„An immense advantage of the use of electric drives is the freedom from maintenance, which reduces service time and costs and ensures maximum machine availability.“
