Wacker Neuson EZ36 compact excavator boasts big machine features


Wacker Neuson‘s new EZ36 compact excavator is designed to provide the comfort and technology of a larger excavator in a 3.6-ton size.

The company touts the EZ36’s zero tail swing, dig depth of 11 feet 6 inches and reach at ground level of 18 feet 6 inches.

The cab is designed for more head and leg room and features a four-position adjustable windshield. The joystick is ergonomically designed. The automotive-style jog dial allows the operator to select operating modes and options. The seat and armrests can be adjusted.

The cab also features storage compartments, a mobile phone docking station and USB port. Sliding side windscreens provide all-around visibility and air circulation. Windscreens can be stored under the cab roof.

For production, the EZ36 has a four-way angle dozer blade and standard thumb bracket. The operator can easily switch from the thumb to another hydraulic attachment without disconnecting lines, as auxiliary hydraulics are plumbed to a diverter valve on the dipper. Operators can choose Eco mode to save fuel and Power mode for max pump performance.

The EZ36 also features Wacker Neuson’s Vertical Digging System, which makes vertical digging on uneven ground, like slopes and sidewalk edges, easier.
