Wacker Neuson excavator

Wacker Neuson continues to expand its range of excavators with the addition of two new compact models. 

The 3.6-ton EZ36, and 2.6-ton EZ26, compact excavators with a minimal tail swing design are suitable for a variety of applications. 

The 3.6-ton class excavator is among the most popular size in the market, so Wacker Neuson looked at features and benefits that would stand out in the crowded market. 

The Wacker Neuson EZ36

The EZ36 combines the technology and operator comfort of a larger machine in an economical package. 

With a dig depth of 3.5 metres and reach 5.64 metres, the EZ36 offers the performance of a conventional track loader with improved maneuverability and stability on a minimal swing machine. 

The user-friendly operating concept and cab starts with an ergonomic joystick, jog dial, key pad and 9 cm display all within easy reach and view. 

The large cab offers ample head and leg room, adjustable seat and armrests, as well as ample storage compartments, mobile phone cradle and USB port. 

The ISO/SAE control pattern change over switch is located in the cab, allowing operators to select their preferred pattern quickly. 

For operator comfort, the machine is equipped with air conditioning and a unique four position adjustable windshield that is ideal for ventilation and job site communication.

The dual flange roller system on the undercarriage improves lateral stability while digging and loading, as well as reduces noise and vibration while travelling.

When it comes to power, the EZ36 combines the 24.5 hp Yanmar engine with a load sensing hydraulic system to optimize a powerful machine in the less than 25 hp class.  

To boost production, the machine may be equipped with the optional power angle dozer blade with float function. 

All daily service checks are easy to see and reach with removable covers and a large hood. The tilting cab and removable ROPS make routine maintenance more convenient and less time consuming.


The EZ26 also offers a modern design, comfortable cab with wide entry, ergonomic controls and quick maintenance access. 

The 2.6-ton unit is ideal for working in tight spaces and for landscape and backyard projects. 

As well, the excavator is easy to transport with eight tie downs, six on the track and two on the dozer blade. Powered by a 20.4 hp Yanmar Tier 4 Final engine, the EZ26 has a dig depth of 2.75 metres and a maximum reach of 4.7 metres. 

Both the EZ36 and EZ26 are available with the Wacker Neuson’s exclusive Vertical Digging System (VDS). VDS allows progressive tilting of the superstructure by up to 15 degrees to compensate for slopes, saving up to 25 per cent on material and time costs.
