Construction equipment and machines are indispensable for the creation, redesign and maintenance of green and open spaces as well as landscape management in general. Wacker Neuson products, which include vibratory plates of all sizes, rammers, rollers, are particularly well suited for the management of parks and green spaces in public or private housing and residential developments. The range also offers first-class products for the design of recreation and sports grounds as well as horticulture and landscape design.
Gardening and landscaping does justice to its designation as a “green industry” in the sense of sustainability. The increased use of low emission machines is catapulting the industry into a leading role. Wacker Neuson can feel that the green industry is growing and thriving based on the good order situation of companies from gardening and landscaping.
Companies in gardening and landscaping require flexible machines that are compact and yet powerful. Work is often done in confined spaces and there are low and narrow passageways or difficult subsurfaces. Wacker Neuson is at home in this area. “Gardeners and landscapers can use our entire product and service offering. This makes us an attractive partner for the green industry”, says Martin Lehner, CEO of Wacker Neuson SE. “In addition to compact machines and construction equipment, we offer financing solutions, maintenance and repair, rentals of our own products and attachments as well as a rapid spare parts availability.”
Innovations for environmental protection and economic efficiency
With a view to environmental protection and economic efficiency, gardening and landscaping is a pioneer in many ways. For example, electric vehicles are being used more frequently and, where possible, walk-behind machines with electric drives – and batteries – are used. The advantages are obvious: Electric motors are significantly quieter than comparable combustion engines and they also do not cause any exhaust gas emissions. Private clients as well as communities know to appreciate this just as the operator of the machine does.
Wacker Neuson has placed focus on economic efficiency and environmental protection for some time in product development and marks products and solutions that stand out especially here with an ECO seal. One innovation by Wacker Neuson in the area of emissionfree work is the 803 dual power excavator. With the dual power option, the miniexcavator can be connected to the external electro-hydraulic power unit HPU8. The excavator is then operated purely electrically and entirely free of emissions – without a loss of engine performance or versatility. Another novelty is the first rammer on the market that is operated by an electric motor with a battery. As the inventor of the rammer, Wacker Neuson thus introduces a unit that can be used without exhaust gas for compaction work has a comparable compaction performance to conventional gasoline vibratory rammers.
An innovation is also the wheel loader WL20e, which marks another step toward electric mobility. The emission- free electric wheel loader from Wacker Neuson is advantageous, especially in gardening and landscaping, since exhaust fumes and noise emissions must be minimized in many application areas. In addition to innovations in the ECO area and the comprehensive product range, however, Wacker Neuson can also convince through customer proximity. Customers in gardening and landscaping, often smaller and middle-sized companies, place a great deal of value on personal care and contact with their partner. The Wacker Neuson direct sales in many countries and the close co-operation with dealer partners pay off here.
