Dressta TD-20M LA crawler dozer

Dressta TD-20M LA crawler dozers were made for all methods of waste disposal, tearing through ground cover and compacting over refuse. 

A variety of special attachments, including perforated side doors and track shoes with clean-out holes, ensure the machine is tailored to the landfilling industry, with the result protecting against contamination while ensuring an optimal performance. 

Semi-u or full-u blades equipped with a waste rack work to provide a smooth compaction, while the rack prevents unwanted materials, such as rods and wires, from entering the radiator area. In addition, centre clean-out holes in track shoes reduce the packing of materials between the sprocket and track chain bushings, which can cause accelerated wear of the track components. Striker bars also prevent debris from riding up the track and damaging fenders. 

The operator cab was designed with safety and comfort as key traits, while working to boost productivity. It can also be equipped with screens of the windows and cab lights to protect against damage. Large cab windows and a sloped hood provide an excellent view of the mounted equipment and an all-round viewing area. An audible and visual warning system also ensures safety is front of mind. 

Gradual turns are supported by a two-speed geared steering module, while keeping full power to both tracks, in addition to conventional clutch-brake performance for tight or pivot turns.

Cat 826K Landfill Compactor

The Cat 826K Landfill Compactor was designed for maximum safety and comfort, easy serviceability and a variety of applications. 

The new compactor boasts numerous production improvements, including three new wheel and tip configurations available to meet a particular application. This comprises a paddle tip for high performance and less fuel burn with more traction and weight, a plus tip for increased side slop stability and a combination tip of paddle and plus to maximise performance and fuel economy with side slope stability. An automatic engine and electrical system shutdown works to conserve more fuel, in addition to a lock-up torque converter. 

In terms of reliability, the compactor uses the fuel-efficient Cat C15 engine with ACERT Technology which works to offer a consistent performance, long life and low emissions. Engine regeneration for Tier4 Final is automatic and does not interrupt the machine’s work cycle. 

To maximise operator safety, a throttle lock maintains the engine speed which aims to reduce fatigue. Visibility has also been enhanced with an optional rearview camera, in addition to the VIMS 3G machine monitoring system, which helps to keep operators informed on machine conditions and operations. 

The compactor’s serviceability is supported by an electronics bay located inside the cab, which offers easy access in a controlled environment.

Ahead of the curve

For the latest diagnostics, vehicle tracking and geofencing, businesses as dissimilar as SCT Logistics, with its road haulage for an extensive rail network and Australian Pacific Touring, which handles outback tours with built-for-purpose all-wheel trucks, rely on Mercedes-Benz Telematics. Both are uncovering data to help spike efficiencies now vital to the demands of their expanding operations.
