Last Month we sold more Yanmar C50 tracked dumpers to National Tracked Dumper Hire.
NTDH specialise in the hire of tracked dumpers and carriers, with many depots across the UK including; Wembley, Manchester, Cardiff and Birmingham.
These recent purchases are in addition to the ones taken in the Summer. These dumpers are the new C50R-5 models, with a 180° swivel tip skip, the C50R-5 also comes with a standard straight tip as well.
You many remember that the C50's underwent a series of upgrades at the end of 2015, which has vastly improved the machine, as mirroed by an upturn in interest and sales in 2016.
Some of the new and popular features are outlined as follows:
Very Low Ground Pressure
Being equipped with one tof the largest track gauages on the market gives these dumpers a large ground surface. 32 rollers on the ground evenly distribute the weight and fully loaded the machines ground pressure is as low as 32.4 kPA. This improves the all terrain capabilities and means the C50R-5 can work in the worst ground condiitons. So much so Yanmar have dubbed this machine as 'light-foot'.
The visbility on the new models has been improved through; wider windows, a re designed right corner of the machine and 3 rear view mirrors. Hence making the surrounding work areas more visibile and safer.
Reversible Travel Levers and Seat
Both the drivers seat and the travel levers are mounted on a 180° turning pivot, meaning the operator is always facing the direction of travel. Apart from the obvious safety benefits this gives it also saves time due to less manoeuvring required, which in turn means less impact on the ground as constant turns of the machine aren't required.
New Cab Design
Now with a large ROPS, FOPS & TOPS standard cab that has improved steps and rails for easier entry and exit. Inside the cab the seat has be chaged to a more comfortable model, as well as all the istruments being positioned on the far side of the cabin. This is so all the switches and the LCD screen are together improving the visibility and ease for the operator.
The latest Yanmar common rail engine equipped with a particle filter is found in these machines. It gives a high engine output whilst still falling in line with the latest engine regulations.
The engine also comes with anti-stall technology, which controls the primary side pilot pressure when travelling up banks and in second speed so stalls can be prevented.
