New Material Handlers from Develon
Published: 28/12, 2023
Develon has launched the company’s new 24t DX230WMH-7 and 25.6t DX250WMH-7 Stage V compliant material handlers. Both are designed to carry out the toughest tasks across a wide range of material sorting and handling applications such as those in the handling of scrap metal and other solid waste, recycling, demolition and in the forestry industry. As a result, both machines are built with front and rear stabilizers, and a boom and arm specifically designed for material handling tasks.
These new material handlers are equipped with the latest generation Develon 6-cylinder, turbocharged DL06V water-cooled diesel engine, providing an output of 189 hp (141 kW) at 1900 rpm. Reducing environmental impact is paramount to Develon, so the engine has extremely low emissions as exhaust gases are purified by Selective Catalytic Reduction technology, a diesel oxidation catalyst, and a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF).
A standard feature is the hydraulic cab riser, which gives the operator better all-around visibility of the attachment and work area. When combined with the rearview camera display in the cab, the operator has excellent visibility of the job site.
A special Develon-developed system, Smart Power Control (SPC), improves machine efficiency while maintaining productivity through variable speed control and pump torque control, automatically adjusting RPMs according to the load being handled. The SPC can be used with all four work modes available on the Develon DX230WMH-7 and DX250WMH-7 material handlers, helping the operator manage the balance of fuel consumption and machine power to the working conditions.
Customers can also choose between straight arm and gooseneck arm configurations, depending on the application and preference. The DX230WMH-7 has been designed for standard loads, while the DX250WMH-7 includes a longer front and an additional 1.2t counterweight to ensure high stability to deal with heavier loads. The wide axle and front/rear outriggers also contribute to the high stability of both machines.
