The cleanest rammers on the market… Waker Neuson

by | Nov 7, 2016 | Featured Slider, Latest, News

Low overall emissions at full power:  Wacker Neuson has the right model for all customer needs.


The topic of compaction has a long tradition at Wacker Neuson. After all, Hermann Wacker invented the rammer in the 1930s. The first rammer was actually an electric rammer, but over the course of time was replaced with combustion engines due to the urge for more mobility. Many developments and innovations followed. Today, just as then, the cleanest rammers on the market bear the logo of Wacker Neuson.


Battery-powered rammers

They are emission-free, cable-free and easy to operate: With the two battery-powered rammers AS30e and AS50e, Wacker Neuson once again proves its position as an innovative leader, because they are completely free of emissions compared to other solutions on the market. The smaller AS30e model is a special rammer for compacting pipe spandrels. The AS50e can be used for all traditional rammer work.


The battery is independent of the model and can be replaced in a few quick steps without any additional tools. Because of the zero emissions, both battery-powered rammers easily stand up to strict requirements for urban construction areas or working in trenches. A clean solution – BG Bau [a professional association for the construction industry in Germany] also thinks so, which rewards the battery-powered rammers from Wacker Neuson with an bonus for occupational safety that is very attractive to the customer.


The two battery-powered rammers are characterised by their low total operating costs, since typical maintenance work on conventional rammers, such as on the carburetor, are not applicable here.


Additional savings can be achieved when it comes to the energy costs: Around 55 percent in energy costs can be saved by operation with electricity. Wacker Neuson uses lithium iron phosphate batteries. These are above all characterized by their long service life: Even after 1,500 charging cycles, at least 80 percent of the original battery capacity is still available. Another positive point is the high temperature stability at operating temperatures between –10 and +50 degrees. This makes it ideal for global application in various climate zones. A special safety concept prevents the battery from self-igniting or catching on fire if damaged.


Two-stroke rammers

The time-tested and proven, two-stroke rammers from Wacker Neuson are not completely emission-free, but work with very low emissions. The two-stroke models are driven by the WM 80 engine that is specially designed and developed by Wacker Neuson, which, thanks to its catalytic converter, falls well below all exhaust standard limits. A multi-stage air cleaner system efficiently cleans the intake air, thereby ensuring the long-term operational readiness of the rammer. The two-stroke rammers are therefore the gasoline vibratory rammers with the lowest total emissions on the market.
