An example of Wacker Neuson's continuing product development is the new five model range of tracked dumpers with payload capacities spanning 500kg to 2.5tonnes. The three smaller units DT05, DT08 and DT12 are walk-behind/stand-on models with buyers of the smallest two having a choice of either petrol or diesel engines
The bigger DT15 and DT25 are ride-on models and with the heaviest unit the operator's seat can be rotated through 180° so the driver can either look towards or away from the load when moving. A 'Steering logic' system means the machine will always travel in the direction the operator is facing when the seat-mounted joystick is pushed forward.
All except the DT05 and DT25 can be specified with a self-loading facility and there are Proline versions of the DT08 and DT12 with more powerful engines variable displacement pumps and pilot controls.
