Ausa showcases its latest dumper – the AR1001AHG, with a fully-reversible cab

The new DR1001AHG dumper is an innovative 10 tonne machine with a reversible driving position. As well as a new-look bodyshape, the dumper features a hydrostatic transmission and a closed cab, which can quickly and simply rotate 180 degrees, providing a significant increase in visibility for the operator.

Ausa says this proportionally improves safety for the operator, as well as for people and objects in the dumper’s surroundings.

In addition to the reversible cab, safety on the new dumper is improved with the use of a front camera, a fully closed ROPS/FOPS cab, a seat belt buckle sensor, two rearview mirrors and an audible reversing alarm.

Electronically, the dumper carries many of the same features as the D601AHG, as it comes with ECO Mode, Smart Stop and Hill Holder technology, as well as a digital screen, incorporating telematic systems data.

Along with the introduction of the DR1001AHG, Ausa also recently showcased a prototype of an all-electric zero-emissions dumper – the D100AHA. With a 1 tonne capacity and an electric power unit, delivering 15 kW, the dumper, according to the company, has enough power to for a full working day.

At the end of a shift, the new machine can be connected directly to the main, with charging taking between four and eight hours, depending on the voltage of the supply.
