VIDEO: Red Dot design award for Wacker EZ50 excavator


Wacker Neuson’s Zero Tail EZ50 excavator has been awarded a Red Dot Award in the area of product design. The five-ton machine offers considerable power as well as a number of safety measures.

The five-ton-excavator EZ50 is a powerful Zero Tail model without any rear projection. The rear of the upper carriage does not overhang the tracks – thus, safe working without the risk of damaging the machine while turning is possible. Safety also plays a key role in other design aspects: the large windows and intelligent layout of the components in the cabin, combined with a fast-descending hood concept provide ideal all-round visibility.
