The Wacker Neuson Vertical Digging System (VDS) for compact excavators: The craziest ideas sometimes bring about the most efficient solutions.

ECOThe infinitely variable tilting of the revolving superstructure by 15 ° easily compensates for gradients of up to 27 % with just a few steps. This makes difficult work easier. Thanks to the Vertical Digging System (VDS) from Wacker Neuson, you'll always keep on top of your job. This creates more productivity, higher efficiency and shorter digging times due to an exact vertical digging. On top of that, you save up to 25 % in materials and time when excavating and backfilling and, as a consequence, also fuel and emissions.
