Safety redefined: The Wacker Neuson “dual view” concept for wheel dumpers allows an unobstructed view in every direction

New standards in terms of operator and construction site safety, flexibility and cost effectiveness are set by the dual view concept for the Wacker Neuson wheel dumper from six to ten tons of payload. 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.

Dual view sets new standards for unrestricted visibility in any situation, because 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. The new concept perfects the field of vision both in the new main direction of travel as well as in the working area facing the bucket.

Optimal view = more safety

The operator changes the direction of view and the forwards travel direction with the seat position. Time-consuming turning and maneuvering are therefore no longer necessary. Dual view unfurls its strengths in particular on small confined construction sites, such as in urban areas, in tunnels or on busy roads: The operator steers the wheel dumper with bucket in the travel direction on the construction site, loads or unloads it with a full view of the loading area and, after a 180-degree rotation of the seat, drives away again in the same way with a full field of vision without having to turn the vehicle. In this way, the operator always has the working environment in full view, which means significantly more safety. 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. Both cameras as well as the display meet the highest protection class rating IP69 (dustproof and protection against water ingression during steam jet cleaning), making them ideal for the harsh conditions on the construction site.

“With our new dual view concept for wheel dumpers, we have completely redefined the topic of safety in this segment. 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. We are already pleased about the high level of orders on hand even before the official product launch,” reports Alexander Greschner, sales executive of Wacker Neuson SE.

More Safety Through Time-Tested and Proven Comfort

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. The optional air-conditioning system ensures a high level of comfort and less fatigue for the operator.

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 maneuverable 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 offers its customers 20 different models of track and wheel dumpers, which are in particular characterized by simple and safe operation as well as their comfort. They can be flexibly outfitted and used to meet individual customer needs. Especially in rough ground conditions, the dumper is indispensable as a transport vehicle.
