The EZ17e zero-emission excavator has been a success in Europe and will launch in North America in late 2023 or early 2024

Construction professionals are invited to explore “All it takes for the challenges you face,” in the Wacker Neuson exhibit at CONEXPO-CON/AGG, March 14-18 in Las Vegas.

Wacker Neuson will preview a variety of new products in Booth W43501, where those in attendance can celebrate the company’s dedication to helping contractors meet their daily challenges on the job site.

A central focus of Wacker Neuson’s booth will be a 1.7-ton battery-powered excavator, the EZ17e.

“This zero-emission excavator has been a success in the European market and will launch in North America in late 2023 or early 2024,” explained Gert Reichetseder, president and CEO of Wacker Neuson America Corporation.

“This machine will provide a solution for contractors and rental houses looking for a quiet, zero-emission excavator to expand their businesses into new applications, while meeting environmental regulations.”

In addition to the EZ17e, Wacker Neuson will further highlight its zero-emission portfolio for battery-powered compaction and concrete consolidation equipment in the “Meet the Future” area of the booth. This includes the debut of the industry’s first battery-powered reversible plate with direct drive, the APU3050e.

All of Wacker Neuson’s battery-powered plates and rammer, as well as its concrete vibrator, are powered by the Battery One battery and charger system. This new vendor-agnostic brand is a single solution, making the use of zero-emission construction equipment on the job site more practical.

Other excavators to be showcased will include Wacker Neuson’s all new EZ26, a 2.6-ton zero tail excavator and the 5.8-ton ET58 tracked excavator. Both of these machines offer contractors all the newest innovations for comfort, performance and efficiency.

Also on display will be Wacker Neuson’s new additions to the utility track loader family.

“The SM60 and SM120 will be premiered at the show and are great complements to the very successful SM100 mini track loader that was introduced in 2021,” said Reichetseder.

These versatile, stand-on utility track loaders are designed for operator comfort, ease of operation and designed to reduce maintenance costs and total cost of

“We look forward to meeting with contractors and dealers at the show to share our new products plus the original job site mainstays Wacker Neuson is known for,” Reichetseder said.
