LiuGong wins back-to-back Red Dot awards with new crawler dozer
Company celebrates second win following its 2019 Red Dot Product Design Award
The new dozer features a mid-cab design over a mid-mounted, automatic, dual path, hydrostatic drive train. It also comes digital ready and with a standard 6-way angle blade. Controls are easily accessible, intuitive, and easy to use due to the electro-hydraulic joysticks. With an operating weight of 19,090 kg (42,090 lb) and net horsepower of 170 hp (127kW), it provides both power and performance.
The Dressta team designed non-slip steps at the rear of the machine, negating the need to step onto the tracks. Complete with safety handrails, these steps allow easy access to and from the cab with three points of contact maintained. The TD16N is the only dozer in its size class with this type of "no tracks" access. The design team also ensured that all access points for daily checks, maintenance and fueling were reachable from ground level.
The LiuGong Dressta design team will receive their award on June 22, 2020, and the Dressta TD-16N dozer will join the LiuGong 4180D motor grader in the Red Dot Hall of fame.
