Gardening and landscaping company HOFFMANN-Gärten®
Roland Hoffmann and his team have been in operation in Murnau for around six months. After the core renovation of their house, the owners wanted a new garden. They put the implementation into the hands of Roland Hoffmann.
On the construction site of the terraced garden, the compact telescopic loader TH412 and the mobile excavator EW65 are used to transport perennials and trees. The ET18 chain excavator is excavating the plant holes.
When the a whole truck full of shrubs and trees arrives, things have to go fast. With the TH412 telescopic loader with a lifting height of up to 4.5 meters and a maximum payload of more than a ton, the plants can be unloaded from the truck. easily. "This saves us a lot of time and real bone work," says Roland Hoffmann. "The telescopic loader is still far from its load limit."
In a next step, the team is preparing the holes for planting with the excavator ET18. The VDS option for Wacker Neuson compact excavators, which compensates differences in height on uneven terrain at the push of a button, is the ideal solution for increased productivity and efficiency. "Right here in the mountains, we have many construction sites on the slope. We have an excavator with VDS and one without. For all construction sites with gradients, we always plan the ET18 with VDS from the outset, "adds Roland Hoffmann.
The fence of the garden was already installed a few days ago. Thanks to the reach of the 6.5-ton EW65 mobile excavator, the transport of the trees into the garden is no problem. With a cultivation and lifting tool, small trees and shrubs are simply lifted over the fence. Not only does the Wacker Neuson mobile excavator EW65 prove to be extremely practical here. One day working in Murnau, in the afternoon it can travel to the next construction site on its own axis at around 30 km/h.
"Wacker Neuson has many machines that I need for my daily work in gardening and landscaping. This starts with cutters and goes up to the excavators. The reliability and serviceability of the machines and the price / performance ratio convinced us. And also the fast support from my local dealer works very well ", says Roland Hoffmann.

Plant equipment hiring company Catmech from South Africa
Catmech, a leading plant equipment hiring company based in Gauteng, South Africa, was initially established in 1990 to repair machines for customers. “We decided to start the plant hire when we recognised the market potential for hiring compact and light equipment,” explains Sean van Heerden, owner of Catmech Plant & Services.
With construction as the hiring company’s core industry, typical machines required by Catmech customers in this market segment include wheel loaders, excavators, concrete breakers and compaction equipment.
When Wacker Neuson was first introduced to Catmech a couple of years ago, Sean decided to try out the Wacker Neuson product. “My customers were initially reticent to try out a new product but after experiencing the versatility and user-friendliness of the Wacker Neuson machines, they were sold!”
Catmech’s current Wacker Neuson fleet of over 55 machines include wheel loaders, excavators, rammers, plates and rollers. “Wacker Neuson is willing to go the extra mile”
Sean is particularly impressed by the unique features offered by the Wacker Neuson equipment and he highlights the unique VDS (vertical digging system) available on the excavators. The VDS adds to the excavator’s versatility and can lead to substantial savings in material and time for the end-user by enabling progressive tilting of the machine by up to 15° to compensate for slopes.
Wrapping up, Sean says that in addition to the fact that Wacker Neuson equipment has zero breakdowns and is easy to maintain, the company provides excellent after-sale service and has a quick response time to all customers. “Wacker Neuson is the best, cost effective piece of equipment I’ve had and they are truly willing to go the extra mile as a committed supplier.”
