The new tracked excavator ET16 from Wacker Neuson is especially suitable for excavation work in confined spaces and offers the operator a generous cabin for best working conditions
Wacker Neuson has introduced a new tracked mini- excavator. The new ET16 from Wacker Neuson is especially suitable for excavation work in confined spaces and offers the operator a generous cabin for best working conditions. The ET16 can reach hardly accessible spots without problems and is therefore particularly suitable for work indoors, the inner-city area or for landscaping - simply for all those places where working in confined spaces is often necessary. Its telescopic undercarriage, which can be extended from 990 to 1,300 mm, allows the operator to drive through narrow passages and also ensures a high level of stability when the telescopic undercarriage is extended. An operating weight of 1.5 tonne makes the new mini- excavator ideally suited for use on sensitive soils as it can easily be controlled there. Due to its low transport weight which is 1,400-1,600 kg, a normal car trailer is sufficient to transport the ET16. The side elements of the dozer blade are firmly connected to the plate, making installation or additional tools unnecessary.
The machine design provides the operator with a maximum of legroom and headroom. A powerful and fuel-efficient 3-cylinder diesel engine (13.2 kW) and a second travelling speed of up to 4 km/h allows quick switching between different working positions and makes the mini-excavator a fast and flexible helper on the construction site - thanks also to its digging depth of about 2.240 mm and a maximum dump height of 2,500 mm.
A direct access to the engine compartment provides easy and quick access to all relevant service points and allows for shorter maintenance and downtimes.
