Dynapac North America's new material transfer vehicles boast capacity of up to 4,000 tph
At World of Asphalt, Dynapac North America introduced the new MF2500CS material transfer vehicle (MTV) product family featuring two new models, the MF2500CS and the MF2500CS with SwingApp. These innovative models offer unmatched production capabilities and lowest overall cost of ownership, boasting a capacity of up to 4,000 tons per hour. The units are also extremely versatile and able to handle a variety of material applications, including asphalt, concrete, sand and base material.
"With the addition of these two new models to our comprehensive material feeder lineup, we're confident we have the most productive feeder solutions on the market today," said Vijay Palanisamy, product manager, pavers and feeders at Dynapac, North America. "Not only are these machines extremely productive, but they also provide best-in-class ergonomic features and total-cost-of-ownership benefits that will bring a lot of value to Dynapac customers."
In terms of productivity, the Dynapac MF2500CS MTV features a high performance and durable conveyor belt system that can empty a standard 35-ton truckload in as little as 35 seconds, significantly reducing truck cycle times and boosting overall productivity. With an MTV width of 8 feet 4 inches (2.55 m), the Dynapac MF2500CS is simple and cost-effective to transport, adhering to standard North American transportation requirements. The models feature a maximum transport mass of 22 tons (20 metric tons).
The MF2500CS is also available with SwingApp functionality, which can transform the unit to an offset feeder by swinging the conveyor belt up to 55 degrees in either direction. This allows for optimal versatility of the MF2500CS, with the capability to handle a variety of feeding applications, including feeding two pavers in a side-by-side configuration, feeding one paver from a different lane or filling medians. SwingApp can be mounted on any Dynapac MF2500CS unit, providing optimum fleet management flexibility. The SwingApp can typically be mounted in less than an hour.
Total cost of ownership is one of the most important benefits of the new MF2500CS. There are a number of contributing factors that help the new product line achieve low total cost of ownership, including well-engineered conveyor belt design, to reduce wear to the components, and simple transportation of the feeder due to its compact transport dimensions. Additionally, averaging less than three gallons per hour of fuel consumption can help reduce operating costs.
There are also a number of ergonomic features integrated into the new MF2500CS. For example, Dynapac's Clearview platform can raise the operator station three feet with the touch of a button, allowing excellent visibility of the jobsite. The operator platform on each side of the feeder also allows for swing-out functionality and can pivot 90 degrees for maximum visibility regardless of the specific complexities of the jobsite. Additionally, the controls of the MF2500 product family are intuitive and simple to use, allowing operators of varying skill levels to effectively operate the machine. The new models are fully automated through the integration of distance control and feeding sensors, and the multifunction joystick integrates main drive and SwingApp functions to put full control at the operator's fingertips. The large LCD monitor delivers all necessary procedural and diagnostic information along with camera feeds in an easy-to-use interface.
In regards to durability, the new MF2500CS is engineered with heavy-duty components to maximize the longevity of the machine. The belt is fully supported by slat bars and mechanical fastening, and features patented mechanical connections for simple serviceability.
The MF2500CS models are powered primarily by a Cummins QSB 6.7-C220 diesel engine and can reach operating speeds of over 80 feet (25 m) per minute, and a transport speed of approximately 2.5 mph (4 km/h).
As one of the latest models in the R2-Series excavator lineup, the Bobcat® E88 delivers durability, performance and quality for more productivity. Technically speaking, it's a compact machine, but it brings big performance with its redesigned engine and optimized lift performance, plus undercarriage and counterweight improvements. All these enhancements make this excavator one of the highest-performing models in its size class. With impressive over-the-side lift capacity, you can dig with greater confidence over the side of the machine. Put it to the test against similar models from other manufacturers. You'll see that the E88 can outwork the competition.
