Dressta North America has rolled out the new TD-40C Tier II Crawler Dozer. It features a 390 kW Cummins QSK- 19C engine with full electronic control, dual overhead camshafts, a variable output turbo system, and oil change intervals of up to 500 hours.
The first thing operators will notice in the TD-40C Tier II is the improved ease-ofoperation. A single left hand joystick controls all machine motion functions – direction, gear ranges, and steering modes. Steering includes 2- speed geared steering, clutch/brake, and pivot modes.
Other improvements include a 4 inch (100 mm) wider track gauge, which at 98 inches (2.49 m) provides improved side slope stability and increased cooling airflow area. The blade lift cylinders have been relocated forward to give more direct blade lift force, and the cylinder crosstube has been eliminated for easier servicing. All hydraulic hoses to the tilt and pitch cylinders are completely enclosed.
