AUSA's new mid-range dumper features 12 percent more heaped capacity over previous generation
After completing the launch of its entire range of dumpers with higher payloads, AUSA is continuing to upgrade its equipment with the new D301AHG dumper, which has a 6,600 lb payload. The new dumper was designed with the aim of delivering higher productivity and a better return on investment for the customer, as well as improved operator safety.
With the D301AHG, AUSA has upgraded its first mid-range dumper. The machine is suitable for large-scale construction work, public work, or earthwork in open spaces.
The dumper is equipped with a Kubota four-cylinder 24.8 hp engine with no diesel particulate filter, DPF, which complies with the Tier 4 low emissions standard. Additionally, the machine's low weight and permanent all-wheel drive give it ideal off-road capability and 50 percent gradeability.
Productivity of AUSA's new D301AHG dumper
This new dumper has been designed to achieve ideal productivity. A new skip has been devised with a heaped capacity of 2.28 cubic yards, which is 12 percent higher than in the previous model. With this increase, the number of journeys operators need to make to transport the same amount of material has been reduced.
The power-to-weight ratio has also been updated, resulting in a machine that is more manoeuvrable, quicker, and has greater off-road capability than previous models.
The cost-effectiveness of the D301AHG dumper
Calculating the return on investment is crucial when it comes to choosing the right equipment.
The new design has angular lines to the rear, which include large engine covers on both sides. The engine covers can be easily reached without using a step. All of the regular maintenance components such as filters and fluid tanks have been arranged to make them fully accessible. Additionally, the counterweight's large central grille makes it possible to quickly access the cooler, making it easy to clean and remove.
AUSA has updated the D301AHG dumper's power-to-weight ratio which means that fuel consumption is lower than the previous model.
The new D301AHG dumper includes a set of safety features.
Firstly, the power is transmitted via hydrostatic transmission, ensuring a smoother operation. The operator's driving position is equipped with a seat that has a presence sensor and a seat belt with a buckle sensor, to prevent the machine from being started if the recommended safety measures have not been taken and to avoid any inadvertent movement of it. Additionally, the machine has been equipped with an electronic negative brake, which is automatically engaged when the dumper's engine is switched off to prevent any movement.
The new D301AHG dumper has an extensive range of optional accessories, so the machine can be customized. These include the AUSAnow fleet manager and lighting equipment.
