The Wacker Neuson DW60 dual view concept for wheel dumpers that allows an unobstructed view in every direction has been revealed at INTERMAT 2018 in Paris earlier this year

The new range of Wacker Neuson wheel dumpers will have the ability to carry anywhere from six to ten tonnes.

Dual view allows the operator to conveniently and quickly change the seat position through a 180-degree rotation of the entire operating and seat console.

This always gives the operator a perfect view in the direction of travel – during transport, loading and dumping.

This is especially useful on small confined construction sites, in urban areas, in tunnels or on busy roads.

After loading or unloading; a 180-degree rotation of the seat allows the operator to drive away the same way they came in, with a full field of vision and without having to turn the vehicle. In this way, the operator always has the working environment in full view.

The concept allows the operator to turn the seat and control panel of the dumper 180 degrees, thereby determining the direction of view and travel.

The rotation can easily be done from the operator's seat using a single handle to unlock the seat console and then rotate the console.

 

Optimal view, better safety

The operator changes the direction of view and the forwards travel direction with the seat position, so time-consuming turning and manoeuvring are therefore not as necessary.

Even a fully loaded bucket no longer blocks the view, because the operator leaves the bucket behind him, as with a truck. In order to keep the environment around the bucket in view, a rear-view camera is installed by default, which is well-protected in a frame. An optional front-view camera completes the perfect view.

"With our new dual view concept for wheel dumpers, we have completely redefined the topic of safety in this segment," Wacker Neuson SE sales executive Alexander Greschner says.

"Together with customers from a variety of markets, we were able to develop a solution that is easy to handle and at the same time has a big effect."

Intuitive operation

Other time-tested and proven safety features, such as the hydrostatic drive, the wear-free spring-loaded parking brake as well as the operation via joystick, which can be used to guarantee that the operator always keeps a hand on the steering wheel, ensure the simple and intuitive operation of the dual view dumpers.

In addition to the canopy version or fold-down roll over protective structure, the dual view models are also available with a cabin.

A sturdy protective grating on the bucket protects the operator and cabin from falling material and from damage from an excavator bucket.

 

Efficient load carrier

Wacker Neuson wheel dumpers can do all the traditional transport work, but also offer additional advantages.

Thanks to their articulated pendulum joint, dumpers are much more manoeuvrable and off-road capable than trucks and can also be used in uneven terrain.

Even under full load, they always remain in contact with the ground and retain very good traction, even in uneven terrain.

Thanks to the variable 180-degree tilting, a flexible swivel tip skip ensures that material can be precisely distributed.

Overall, with the new dual view dumpers, Wacker Neuson will have 20 different models of track and wheel dumpers available internationally.
