Thwaites are pleased to announce the launch of their Super Seven Dumper. Showcased at Plantworx 2019 June 11th-13th the new machine embodies the engineering excellence that is synonymous with all Thwaites machines.
With 7 key features, the new 7-tonne machine gives operators greater visibility, stability and ease of use. Launching the Super Seven Thwaites MD Ian Brown said,
“The objective of the Super Seven is to deliver 7 key improvements that will enable enhanced operator visibility and greater stability. Focused on ensuring risk is reduced for both site workers and the operator, whilst increasing payload and productivity”
The machine, designed by the Thwaites Warwickshire based engineering team, who were driven by the vision of improving the operator’s ability to be seen, without sacrificing the effectiveness of the dumper’s capabilities on site. This resulted in the following 7 new features being implemented into the final machine design.
1) Improved Visibility
Designing the skip with a lower front edge provides the operator with a much clearer view of any obstacles that may be ahead.
2) Safer Operator Access/Egress
Day glow yellow steps, grab rails and roll bar highlight the important three-points-of-contact.
3) Advanced 180º Front-Facing Camera
Provides a clear view of the front blind spot for low-speed manoeuvring.
4) Wider Track For Greater Stability
Using axles normally found on our 9-tonne dumper, gives this machine a wider, more stable track.
5) Best in Class Ground Clearance
Allows for effortless travel over ruts and uneven ground on any site.
6) Compliant Stage V Engine (No Ad Blue)
A clean, efficient engine with plenty of power whenever you need it.
7) 7 Tonne Skip Capacity
Intelligent skip design allows an additional tonne of carrying capacity over the 6-tonne dumper, whilst providing greater forward visibility.
The machine further develops Thwaites portfolio following the successful launch and market approval of the Thwaites 7-tonne and 9-tonne cabbed machine launched in 2017.
