Whoever proves manoeuvrability always has an advantage.
The Vertical Digging System (VDS) from Wacker Neuson is in a league of its own.
The intelligent upgrade for Wacker Neuson excavators.

1988 – Wacker Neuson designs and develops the first intelligent solution for efficient excavating on uneven ground conditions: The Vertical Digging System (VDS). Unique to this day and only available at Wacker Neuson.

The sturdy tilting console allows for the variable tilting of the revolving superstructure by 15°. In this way, the operator compensates for gradients of up to 27% at the push of a button. It is used everywhere that different height levels are to be compensated, e.g. when working on slopes or sidewalk edges. And there are plenty of these in everyday excavator operation.

The VDS option is available for the following models:
