The boost for every construction site

Both new Tracked Excavators in the 4- or 5-metric ton class, ET42 and EZ50, enable working even more efficiently and comfortably.

High performance, compact dimensions, comfortable operation: these are the demands being put on excavators of this class. With the tracked conventional tail excavator ET42 and the tracked zero-tail excavator EZ50, Wacker Neuson offers the ideal combination of these requirements. The powerful drive allows customers to deploy the machines for demanding tasks as well. Both excavators are impressive for their high lifting and digging power for quick work cycles and the 3-point kinematics for more break out force, insertion depth and dumping height.

Efficient and safe work

The innovative hydraulic system “Load Sensing Flow Sharing” ensures precise control and high performance efficiency: the machine adjusts automatically to the load and the joystick movement remains constant for the operator at all times. This makes working with the excavator particularly comfortable. Four additional control circuits allow the use of a great variety of attachments. For the end user, this opens up many more varied application areas. In addition, with the new pressure release switch, hydraulic attachments can be changed more easily and quickly, making the sequence of operations on the construction site smoother and operation more comfortable. The optional auto-stop function switches off the engine after a longer period of inactivity, which makes working with the excavators more efficient.

Both excavators also score points in the area of safety: The new Active Working Signal (AWS) guarantees a higher level of safety for persons in the work area of the excavator: when the excavator is ready for use, a red LED strip, integrated in the engine hood, lights up. This way, all persons on the construction site know that the excavator is in service – a simple but effective feature for more construction site safety.

Roomy cab for even greater comfort

The cab of the excavators ET42 and EZ50 is designed spaciously in a way that the operator has optimal view of all sides, especially of the right-hand track and the attachment. “The operator should feel good in the cab and be able to get his bearings quickly and easily,” Bogner adds. “For this reason, we placed great value on intuitive operation and the greatest possible overview.” The machine is operated simply by means of a joystick, jog dial, 3.5-inch display and keypad. For example, using these elements, the quantity of hydraulic oil required for each individual attachment can be stored and saved. This makes changing the attachments easy and comfortable and prevents possible damage due to incorrectly set oil quantities.
