No cords, no fumes
Wacker Neuson’s battery-powered rammers and plates provide an alternative power source for indoor applications and job sites with noise and emission guidelines. The same battery system can be used to power all products across the two product lines. At the heart of the AS50e and AS60e rammers and the AP1840e and AP1850e plate series is Wacker Neuson’s BP1000 lithium-ion battery. One system, including battery and charger, is designed to easily exchange between all products. The BP1000 can be inserted into any product without the need of special tools. No cords and no fumes mean the operator can move around the job site freely and is no longer exposed to heat, exhaust fumes and engine noise. The smart-battery technology is designed to recognize which product it is powering, providing for the most efficient operation. Additionally, there is no liquid fuel source to spill during refueling, transportation and operation. Wacker Neuson’s BP1000 maintenance-free battery uses an easy push button start and provides constant power output over the entire discharge phase, providing full compaction performance from the first to last minute of work. Under typical working conditions, two batteries with a charger can fulfill the needs of a standard working day. Should the battery need to be changed, it can be easily removed without tools and replaced with a charged battery within a few simple steps. The battery-powered AP plate series is available with or without a water tank for soil and asphalt compaction. Like the rammer, the plates offer a new solution for contractors and rental centers looking for a cordless, emission-free plate compactor for a variety of applications. These are the only single-direction plates on the market without a V-belt. The virtually maintenance-free electric motor is mounted directly on the baseplate, which requires fewer wear parts and reduces service time when compared to a gas or diesel engine, contributing to the low total cost of ownership.

AP/GP18 single direction vibratory plates from MBW are available with or without a water tank. A patented suspension system reduces hand/arm vibration and also better isolates all upper mass components, including the engine, from vibrations produced by the machine’s exciter. These plates are perfect for confined areas of granular soils including sands and gravels as well as placing interlocking pavers, bricks and blocks with the optional UHMW paving pad. The 18 had some recent modifications to the spray bar and added clearance, which now allows for a paving pad to be used on the asphalt version. Additional updates also include a standard Honda GX160 engine and new side plate handles, making lifting easier. Weighing 130 to 184 pounds, these plates are easy to lift and manoeuver around the jobsite. Accompanied by intense vibration, MBW’s 1000 Series vibratory plates are ideally suited for a number of compaction application needs.
