Wacker Neuson’s newest dumpers, the DW60 and DW90, feature articulated steering, hydrostatic four-wheel drive, and a 75-horsepower, Tier 4-Final Perkins engine. The DW60 has a capacity of 4.2 cubic yards and is a perfect match, says the company, for 5-to 10-ton excavators; the DW90 is rated at 5.6 cubic yards and is a match for excavators in the 14-ton class.
The DW60 and DW90 dumpers are designed, says Wacker Neuson, to carry full payloads across rough terrain, through muddy underfoot conditions and up steep hills. Turf tires allow the machines to work in more sensitive ground conditions.
According to Wacker Neuson, the dumpers have a smaller footprint than conventional dump trucks and can easily maneuver around confined job sites. The machines’ impact- resistant buckets swivel and dump from the front or either side for accurately placing loads. The buckets are operated with a single joystick controller.
Operator’s stations that are accessible from both sides of the machine, and dashboards display a full range of instrumentation. The new dumpers are available with heated/air-conditioned cabs, and a ROPS version is available with an optional awning to help protect the operator from rain and sun.
