Neuson is introducing its Vertical Digging System (VDS) to select compact
excavators in 2011.
compensates for height differences on uneven terrain and quickly sets the
operator in an upright position, greatly increasing productivity.
innovative system enables operators to tilt the cab and boom of the excavator
by up to 15 degrees with the push of a button, allowing the
operator to compensate for slopes up to 27%.
excavator can then be used to dig more precisely in a vertical position,
which significantly speeds up excavation and backfilling work, resulting in
time and material savings of up to 25%. Operators can remain in an upright
position, making it easier and more comfortable to operate. Increased stability
is a further benefit, creating a safer environment for operators and across the
construction site as a whole.
Neuson is the only excavator manufacturer in the industry to offer the unique
Vertical Digging System. The benefits include greater productivity and improved
efficiency, thanks to shorter digging times; up to 25% time and material
savings when excavating and backfilling; up to 20% increased stability at full
load and optimized swiveling performance and dumping height.
The job site uses for the VDS are many. Not many
sites actually provide a level working surface, so Wacker Neuson’s VDS can be
engaged in a variety of applications. These compact excavators with the VDS are
ideal for such applications as digging on an embankment, straddling concrete
curbs and digging in narrow areas. The VDS also allows for vertical holes to be
dug on an incline with an auger and bit attachments.
