A simple hinge and hydraulic cylinder allow the excavator to be leveled to one side.
Wacker Neuson's Vertical Digging System allows the operator to plumb a mini excavator's boom and level the cab on slopes up to 27%.

Wacker Neuson's Vertical Digging System (VDS) for its compact excavators compensates for height differences on uneven terrain. The cab and boom can be tilted by up to 15° with the push of a button, compensating for slopes up to 27%. The excavator can then be used to dig more precisely in a vertical position, which speeds up excavation and backfilling work. Operators remain in an upright position, making it easier and more comfortable to operate.
- Up to 25% time and material savings when excavating and backfilling
- Up to 20% increased stability at full load
- Optimized swiveling performance and dumping height
- Especially suited for such applications as digging on embankments, straddling concrete curbs and digging in narrow areas
