Talking to end users pays off for Dressta
By Steve Ducker26 March 2015
Polish company Dressta will launch its TD9 hydrostatic crawler dozer later this year after it came through extensive tests with users in North America.
Dressta said the compact unit had undertaken a series of trials designed to push its performance to the limit, and the company had acted on user feedback to fine tune it further.
Howard Dale, global vice president of sales, said: “The operators’ input in regards to ergonomics and command of control played a key role in refining the design. As a result, the low-effort controls for the blade and dual path hydrostatic drivetrain deliver the required response.”
In total, there are three models in the range, ranging from 74 to 101 net HP.
Components come from suppliers including Cummins and Rexroth.
Dressta’s new range of compact dozers is designed for a range of applications, from power dozing and site preparation, to landscaping, final grade and fine-finishing jobs around houses.
