Wacker Neuson has redesigned its smallest tracked dumper, the 900 kg capacity TD9, with the unit now using a more powerful 9.4 kW Yanmar L100N diesel engine and a fuel tank with almost double the volume of the previous model.

The German manufacturer said the new TD9 is "even more efficient in handling material, with two travel speeds, low-maintenance hydrodynamic drive and a maximum gradeability of 58% as well as a reduced sound power level (LwA) of 100 dB (A)." The machine is 800 mm wide.

The redesigned engine hood is solidly attached to the chassis and servicing and maintenance access is easy through its two lockable side flaps. The left-hand flap provides access to the air and oil filters, fuel injection lever, diesel pump, fuel filter and newly-developed water separator with drain hose. The right-hand flap provides access to the silencer and exhaust pipe that expels the exhaust gases beneath the machine.

A further innovation is a lockable cover hatch on the control console. This conceals the filler caps for both the hydraulic oil and fuel tanks, offering good protection against theft and vandalism.
