By Patrick Hill27 October 2008
Italian manufacturer Tower Light has launched the 850 kg capacity, tracked mini Dumper 850. Powered by a Honda 5.5 kW GX 270, the 390 kg machine is "ideal to transport all types of concrete", as well as being suitable for general material transport, said the company.
Tower Light, based in Villanova d'Ardenghi but wth its sales and marketing functions based in the UK, mounted a steel sheet bucket with a hydraulic tipper on a carrier with three cast iron rollers on each track to create the Dumper 850. Its hydrostatic transmission has two forward and two rear speeds, and overall dimensions are 1100 (L), 800 mm (W), and 590 mm (H). Noise level is 101 dB.
A 490 kg Pro version, with self-loader, is available, and prices of the models range from €8000 to €12000. An electric starter is optional on both models.
