New plate offers 7 t roller power says Wacker
By Murray Pollok07 April 2010
Wacker Neuson says its new DPU 130 vibratory plate offers the same compacting power as a 7 t roller. A key feature of the remote controlled unit is the use of two ground plates that make it more maneuverable.
Also in the compaction sector the company unveils a new range of WP-series vibratory plates up to 105 kg. Wacker Neuson says the new design of base plate means that compaction performance is good along edges and "without damaging hot asphalt surfaces when they are turned quickly."
In the light equipment sector, the company is adding the EH 25 electric breaker, a model that has vibration levels below 5 m/s2, allowing a worker to use it for an entire 8 hour shift.
Also new are the BTS 630 and BTS 6354 cut off saws, replacing Wacker's existing models. These will feature a new air filter concept that will reduce maintenance requirements and downtime. Finally, Wacker is expanding its pump range with additional PS submersible pumps, although there are no advance details available.
