HTC expands Duratiq linePublished 3/7 at 12:55
HTC has added the entirely new Duratiq 5 to its award winning line of grinders. The Duratiq 5 has a grinding width of 515mm (20.3 inches) and is available in two models: one with a 2.2 kW (3HP) motor and the other a 4.0kW (5.4 HP). Both models have an entirely new design with the focus on ease of handling and power.
The Duratiq 5 also boasts features that are unique for its size, and will replace the existing HTC 420 and HTC 500 models. Some of the new features include a digital control panel that provides full control of capacity and functions, a new grinding head which is hermetically sealed and dustproof for maximum reliability. Additionally it comes complete with effective and energy efficient motors for higher grinding performance on a modular chassis, with grinding head with quick couplers for easy transport and optimal handling.
The mist cooler system increases productivity by 78%, with its easy to handle weight enables three different grinding pressures. 20 different handle settings are provided for optimal ergonomics. With its compact dimensions, the Duratiq 5 is suitable for both small and medium sized surfaces. Versatility is ensured with the new machine being able to utilise HTC’s 120 compatible tools, meaning it is able to handle everything from grinding concrete and other rough surfaces, to polishing natural stone and sanding wooden floors.
Cathérine Königk, HTC’s head of marketing, says of the Duratiq 5: “We're happy to be able to continue the traditions from the popular HTC 420 and 500, and offer our customers a more powerful yet ergonomic machine. Operators gain a complete overview of the machine’s capacity and functions in an entirely new way with the digital control panel. We believe this is something that will be much appreciated. We’re tremendously proud of how our R&D department has succeeded in utilising the technology from the larger models, and adapting it, and the associated benefits to this compact format.”
The Duratiq 5 was launched globally on 11 April 2018.
