After completing the launch of its entire range of dumpers with higher
payloads, 6 and 10 tonnes, AUSA is continuing to upgrade its equipment with the new
D301AHG dumper, which has a 3,000 kg payload. A completely new dumper, designed
with the aim of delivering higher productivity and a better return on investment for the
customer, as well as improved operation safety.
With the D301AHG, AUSA has upgraded its first mid-range dumper. Machines that are
perfectly suited to relatively large-scale construction works, whether for public works or
quick earthworks in open spaces.
To move the load, the dumper is equipped with a Kubota four-cylinder 18.5 kW engine
with no DPF, which complies with the Stage V low emissions standard. Additionally, the
machine’s low weight and permanent all-wheel drive give it excellent off-road capability
and 50% gradeability.
This new dumper has been designed to achieve optimal productivity. In this new design,
a new skip has been devised with a heaped capacity of 1,742 litres, which is 12% higher
than in the previous model. With this notable increase, AUSA is seeking to minimise the
number of journeys that the operator has to make to transport the same amount of
material, thus speeding up the completion of the works.
The power-to-weight ratio has also been optimised, resulting in a machine that is more
manoeuvrable, quicker and with greater off-road capability.
Calculating the return on investment is a crucial moment when it comes to choosing the
right investment, so basic elements have been prioritised to lower this outlay:
Firstly, the new design has angular lines to the rear, that allows to include large engine
covers on both sides, which can be easily reached on your feet, without using any kind
of step. All of the regular maintenance components such as filters and fluid tanks have
been arranged to make them fully accessible in this area. Additionally, the
counterweight’s large central grille makes it possible to quickly access the cooler, making
it easy to clean and remove.
It is also worth noting that the optimisation of the D301AHG dumper’s power-to-weight
ratio ensures that fuel consumption is significantly lower than in the previous model.
In terms of equipment, the new 3-tonne dumper includes a set of safety features that
make it a top performer in this regard.
Firstly, the power is transmitted via hydrostatic transmission, ensuring smoother and
safer operation. Furthermore, the 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, it has been equipped with an electronic negative
brake, which is automatically engaged when the dumper’s engine is switched off to
prevent any movement whatsoever.
Finally, the new D301AHG all-terrain dumper has an extensive range of optional
accessories, so the machine can be customised to meet each customer’s requirements.
