Intermat gives gold star to Wacker’s plug-and-play excavator

Wacker Neuson’s dual power 803 mini-excavator has won the gold award for innovation in the construction equipment category of the 2015 Intermat innovation awards.

The Wacker Neuson 803 has a regular diesel engine but can also be plugged into a HPU8 electro-hydraulic unit for emissions-free operations with no loss of performance, which can be handy indoors but just watch out for those cables.

The accolade is well enough deserved but I find it slightly strange that a product first presented at Bauma 2013 is still eligible for Intermat’s prizes two years later.

There is a corporate video that you can find on YouTube but I prefer this rather simpler snippet of it at work in appropriately respectful silence in what appears to be a German church.
