Wacker Neuson adds two compact wheeled excavators, the 6.5-metric ton model 6503 and the 9.5-metric ton model 9503. Marketed toward urban users, the machines can move within a 25-mile radius instead of being trailered, the company says. The 6503 can travel at speeds up to 19 mph, the 9503 up to 25 mph. The 6503 is powered by a 58.7-horsepower Yanmar and has a maximum digging depth of 12 feet 7 inches. The 9503 has a 101.8-horsepower Deutz and digs to 13 feet. Both have tiltable cabs for serviceability.
