 Collectively, the forward turning point, the unique tandem bogie and the sloping rear frame results in ‘best in class’ rough and soft terrain capabilities. The unique body shape and sloping frame ensure equal load distribution on all the wheels making these machines the best haulers for soft terrain work. The design of the articulation also provides equal load distribution on the wheels on both the left and right hand side when turning, which is very important for the traction and stability of the machines. All of these outstanding features are available on the Doosan Stage V DA30-7 and DA45-7 ADT models.
In the new 4x4 ADT, the front truck and cab unit is the same as in the original 6x6 model, with modifications being made on the rear dumper unit only. Featuring a ZF EP8-420 transmission, the 4x4 DA45-7 is a two-axle ADT with twin wheels at the rear, and with a dumper section similar to that on RDTs in the 40-tonne class.
Superior performance in difficult conditions, compared to RDTs
“With superior operation on poorer roads, smoother surfaces and steeper terrain, the aim of our new 4x4 machine is to challenge RDTs in the 40-tonne class, by providing a dumper product that delivers much more than RDTs,” says Beka Nemstsveridze, ADT Product Manager at Doosan.
As well as performing better in conditions that are tough for RDTs, the new 4x4 DA45-7 ADT has a width of less than 4 m to avoid the need for special transportation and offers a better turning radius than a comparable RDT. The shorter turning radius and the design of the rear dumper unit, which is more suited to carrying flat and heavy rocks, provide particular advantages in the mining and tunnelling industries.
The latter are growing markets for ADTs, and include pioneering, short-term mining projects, quarrying and contract mining industries, especially those in southern Africa, the UK and Australia. Construction and bulk earthmoving contractors involved in roads, dams, airports, landfills and development projects are also large users of ADTs. Together these areas make the ADT market a wide and varied one, thereby ensuring a large customer base.
DXB Pump & Power achieve ISO9000/14000/45000 certification of its process systems underwriting its focus on environmentally designed pumps for quarries
  DXB Pump & Power the UK’s leading environmental pump manufacturer has recently been approved and certified by the British Standards Institute to ISO9000, 14000 and 45000.
The company, which is the only wholly British owned pump manufacturing company has, since its founding in 2017, developed a range of market leading Stage 5 and electric pumpsets for the quarry and mining markets in the UK and Europe that has seen it save its customers substantially on fuel costs CO2 and NOx emissions.
Speaking from their new 13000sqft factory in Suffolk, Matt Flack- Director of Operations, said “Starting as a brand new facility in 2017 enabled us to use best practice methods in designing and manufacturing the cleanest pumpsets for our quarry customers easily, but now having certified these processes with our ISO certifications, ensures that we continually produce high quality, environmental equipment for our most important market.”
Sue Alsop who joined the company in 2022 as Director of QHSE, has worked hard to design and install their process systems to ensure that the company would not only achieve its ISO approvals but also more importantly, allow the business to design and develop the most advanced pumpsets on the global market consistently to the highest quality and environmental standards.
