Wacker Neuson: 50 years of dumper expertise

24. August 2021, 08:08

Dumpers have become indispensable at the construction site as flexible, compact and powerful helpers. Wacker Neuson comes with long years of expertise in the development and manufacture of wheel and track dumpers: a whole 50 years of dumper expertise!

Equipped with a skip for transporting construction material and excavated material, dumpers, also called dump trucks, have become helpers in demand on many construction sites in the last few decades. Wacker Neuson takes pride in its 50 years of dumper expertise: at the turn of the millennium, Neuson Baumaschinen GmbH took over the company Ebbs & Radinger. At that time, this company already had decades of dumper experience. Together with the Lifton company in Great Britain, dumpers were initially still produced in Vienna and Wales until production was relocated to Austria in 2008. With the merger of then-Neuson Kramer Baumaschinen AG and Wacker Construction Equipment AG, this comprehensive expertise came to today’s Wacker Neuson SE. Some employees who have been part of the company for decades took their knowledge further – and continually expand on it. Since 2012, the Wacker Neuson center of expertise for dumpers and excavators has been located at the site in Hörsching near Linz with the areas Research, Development and Production. In total, Wacker Neuson offers ten wheel dumper models, three Dual View dumpers and seven track dumper models. 

“In developing our dumpers, we always think one step ahead,” explains Stefan Kurzmann, product expert for dumpers at Wacker Neuson. “On the one hand, we optimize already time-tested and proven models in matters of safety, ergonomics, performance and handling. On the other, issues such as digitalization and electrification play a growing role in further development.” For example, here’s how the electric dumper DW15e works without direct exhaust emissions. Another dumper innovation from the house of Wacker Neuson is the three Dual View models DV60, DV90 and DV100 with a payload of six to ten metric tons. Dual view allows the operator to conveniently and quickly change the seat position through a 180-degree rotation of the entire operator control panel and the seat console.
