Wacker Neuson ideal for installing utility poles

The Cornwall based specialist contractor, E.J. Fry Transport & Plant Hire of Launceston, has recently added a pair of Wacker Neuson excavators to its feet in order to assist with the installaton of electricity poles across difcult terrain and in tght access areas. The two most recent machines consist of a 1703 and a triple boom 6003 weighing 2 tonne and 6 tonne respectvely. The smaller unit has been specifed with Wacker Neuson’s unique Vertcal Digging System (VDS) which enables the operator to hydraulically tlt the complete superstructure at the touch of a buton in order to keep it in the upright positon on gradients of up to 27%. This system was chosen by Mr. Fry because it is highly efectve for digging vertcal holes at minimum width on sloping ground.

The triple boom configuration of the 6003 also greatly helps when planting poles as it not only provides greater lift height but also makes it possible to work effectively when space is at a premium, even when handling poles up to 14 m in length.
