Chinese construction equipment manufacturer Shantui has introduced what it claims is the largest bulldozer in China at the Bauma China show – the 105 tonne SD90-5.
Powered by a 708 kW engine, the tracked dozer is designed for large-scale earthmoving projects. It is equipped with a 45 m3 capacity blade and a ROPS and FOPS-certified cab.
On-board technology includes colour display instruments with automatic fault detection systems and a remote monitoring system to allow real-time diagnosis of servicing needs.
The SD90-5 also features a new hydraulic fan system which adjusts its speed according to working conditions – technology that Shantui claims helps reduce fuel consumption.
