Uro­mac Lac­er­tis site dumpers fea­ture ro­tat­ing seat and con­trols

The new Lac­er­tis Se­ries site dumpers from Uro­mac have a fully ro­tat­ing seat base plate, which means the en­tire seat, dash­board and steer­ing wheel all turn with the op­er­a­tor.

As this en­ables the driver to face the for­ward driv­ing di­rec­tion or the rear-mounted hopper when op­er­at­ing the Lac­er­tis dumpers it gives bet­ter vi­sion, im­proves safety and pro­duc­tiv­ity be­cause fewer ma­noeu­vres are needed, and low­ers driver fa­tigue.

Uro­mac Aus­tralasian agent Fork­lift Finder Ser­vices says the heavy-duty site dumpers “meet the high­est stan­dards of safety and ser­vice life de­signed to op­er­ate in dif­fi­cult con­di­tions in con­struc­tion and mines while de­liv­er­ing ex­cep­tional power, low run­ning costs and in­creased driver sat­is­fac­tion”.

The Lac­er­tis trucks have an ar­tic­u­lated chas­sis with a 9-tonne pay­load and fea­tures such as a rear-mounted hopper for bet­ter vis­i­bil­ity, safety and com­fort.

They are mul­tipur­pose ma­chines de­signed for a wide va­ri­ety of at­tach­ments, such as a three-way dis­charg­ing hopper, brush cut­ter or con­crete mixer.

The dumpers are pow­ered by a Cat 106kW (142hp) en­gine, which FFS says de­liv­ers a size­able in­crease in the power of the ma­chine.

The pow­er­train’s high torque of­fers more power at lower revs and im­proves re­sponse on steep gra­di­ents or poor ground con­di­tions.

The road-rail ver­sion of the Lac­er­tis site dumper is equipped with a rail-wheel sys­tem to cir­cu­late on 1435mm track gauge (oth­ers on de­mand).

It’s de­signed for rail­way ap­pli­ca­tions to trans­port con­crete from the truck to the site, bal­last to the track or earth and rub­ble from the rail yard to an outer area.

A shunter ver­sion is avail­able with ca­pac­i­ties from 700 to 1500 tonnes.

Spain’s Uro­mac has more than 70 years of ex­pe­ri­ence in the man­u­fac­tur­ing of 4X4 ve­hi­cles and ma­chines such as site dumpers and fork­lifts for the con­struc­tion, rail­way, min­ing, for­est and mil­i­tary sec­tors. The com­pany spe­cialises in road-rail ve­hi­cles and ma­chines.
