Innovation and surprises from Ausa at IntermatPublished 10/10 at 16:25
Intermat 2018 saw Ausa, with the global manufacturer of compact, all terrain industrial vehicles for loading and moving materials, capturing the attention of visitors to its stand with its latest innovations exhibited.
Technology, safety and ‘unstoppability’ are the three concepts that define the new D601AHG Ausa dumper which was unveiled at Intermat. This is the first dumper equipped with hydrostatic transmission and limited slip differential on both axles, giving it excellent all terrain traction. It incorporates three automatic operating modes - eco, which automatically regulates the engine's revolutions for greater efficiency and lower consumption; start & stop, which switches the engine off when it is not in use; and transport, which increases the engine's power for greater speed during journeys. It also incorporates a digital display on the dashboard that provides the driver with all of the machine's information.
A surprise from Ausa
Also unveiled at the show was the D100AHA electric which is the first electric dumper with a driver's cab. The prototype of the most compact dumper in Ausa’s catalogue possesses an electrical power unit that delivers 13kW with a capacity of 6h at maximum power; enough to power the machine for an entire working day. With an external transformer, it can be connected directly to the mains (220V), completing the charging process in just 5h. As with the base model, it possesses a loading capacity of 1t.
Full visibility system
Incorporated in the new D450AHG dumper, with a loading capacity of 4.5t and hydrostatic transmission, is Ausa’s full visibility system. This provides a safety system that includes two night vision cameras and eight proximity sensors. It is technology taken directly from the automotive sector, whereby the TFT screen in the driver's cab provides the operator with total vision of their surroundings, allowing the driver to be constantly aware of elements in front and to the rear of the vehicle that are lost in their direct field of vision.
The new T144H is Ausa’s highly compact telescopic handler, with a loading capacity of 1350kg up to a maximum height of 4m. In addition, thanks to the side position of its telescopic arm, it has the widest driver's cab of the sector, which is also claimed to be ‘very comfortable’. With its highly advanced driver's cab design, it provides the operator with excellent visibility.
Completing the line-up on the stand, Ausa also presented the models that are already known, such as the T204H compact telescopic handler, with a loading capacity of 2000kg with a reach of up to 4.2m, the renowned C250H and C500 forklifts, with loading capacities of 2.5t and 5t respectively, and the BD202HL mechanical sweeper, with a capacity of 1.2m3.
