The Dual View dumpers DV60, DV90 and DV100 set new standards for unrestricted view in every situation. The seat console and the control panel can be rotated conveniently from the operator’s seat by simply unlocking the console and then turning it to define the direction of view and travel. The concept optimizes the line-of-sight both in the new main direction of travel as well as in the working area facing the skip. “With our new Dual View wheel dumpers, we have completely redefined the topic of safety in this segment. Together with customers from a variety of markets, we were able to develop a solution that is easy to handle and at the same time has a big effect,” reports Alexander Greschner, Sales Director of the Wacker Neuson Group.
Optimal view = more safety
The operator changes the direction of view and the forwards travel direction with the seat position. Time-consuming turning and maneuvering are therefore no longer necessary. Dual View unfurls its strengths in particular on small confined construction sites, such as in urban areas, in tunnels or on busy roads: The operator steers the wheel dumper with the skip in the travel direction on the construction site, loads or unloads it with a full view of the loading area and, after a 180-degree rotation of the seat, drives away again in the same way with a free line-of-sight without having to turn the vehicle. In this way, he always has the working environment in full view, which means significantly more safety. Even a fully loaded skip no longer blocks the view, because the operator leaves the skip behind him during travel, as with a truck.
In order to keep the environment around the skip in view, a rear-view camera can be installed as an option, which is well-protected in a frame. An optional front-view camera completes the perfect view. Both cameras as well as the display meet the highest protection class rating IP69 (dustproof and protection against water ingression during steam jet cleaning), making them ideal for the harsh conditions on the construction site.
Overall, with the Dual View dumpers, Wacker Neuson offers its customers 20 different models of track and wheel dumpers, which are in particular characterized by simple and safe operation as well as their comfort. They can be flexibly outfitted and used to meet individual customer needs.
