Doosan Construction Equipment has announced several new developments in the company’s DA30 and DA40 articulated dump trucks (ADTs) aimed at increasing safety and productivity.
Doosan ADTs have an articulation hinge behind the turning ring to provide equal weight distribution and keep full contact between the tyres and the road surface. The trucks also have an flexible undercarriage with a free-swinging rear tandem bogie that further guarantees permanent 6-wheel drive for equal power distribution. The sloping body design also enhances the stability of the trucks, the designers say, because it lowers the centre of gravity. It allows makes tipping quicker and easier.
The combination of the forward turning point, the unique tandem bogie and the sloping rear frame does away with the need for electronic aids such as traction control, Doosan says.
Demolition firm SER (Sanierung im Erd und Rückbau GmbH) from Heilbronn is deploying four Case crawler excavators on a large scale demolition project.
While working on the upcoming yearbook of the National Federation of Demolition Contractors (NFDC), this update from Case caught my eye so thought I would share it with you.
You may recall that Case first showed us the new C Series crawler excavators at last year’s Intermat show in Paris. SER has put its new machines to work clearing the remains of on old factory, which is being redeveloped.
Digger Blog reader Jalbuu from Newcom Mining Services, a Terex dealer in Mongolia, wanted to share with us his team's role in the construction of Mongolia's very first wind farm.
Salkhit Wind Farm, owned by Clean Energy LLC, is the first wind farm and also the first privately-funded energy project in Mongolia, which hasn’t added any capacity to the central grid since early 1980s.
Gloucestershire-based Valley Trading has purchased the first new generation Doosan DL200-3 Stage IIIB compliant wheel loader in the UK.
Valley Trading, run by the husband and wife team of Reino and Barbara Kahkonen, processes about 50,000 tonnes of material a year at its site on the Babdown Industrial Estate near Tetbury.
It also supplies aggregates and hires out skips, tippers and grab lorries. But it is for handlign waste that it needs the new loader.
The last remaining brickyard in Buckinghamshire has taken delivery of a new Volvo L45G wheeled loader.
HG Matthews is the only brick producer using a biomass heating process for drying clay prior to firing in the UK and is pioneering the use of raw timber as the fuel source for firing its bricks. The company provides bespoke styles and colours of brick for new house builds, renovations and extensions to fulfil local planning consents.
Its new Volvo L45G wheeled loader has been supplied with three identical 1.2m³ rehandling buckets which are dedicated to the three main types of clay arriving at the stock yard. By utilising the Volvo attachment bracket, swapping buckets is very simple and saves a good deal of time ‘de-contaminating’ from one material to another.
