Advantage series bottom dump trailers hold 22 cu yd and are 39 - 42-ft long. Full-width aluminum fenders are sloped to effectively shed material. The one-piece design of the hopper and frame provides strength and weight savings, while lightweight cross-braces tie the frame together to minimize flexing and twisting. Additional features include pin-style landing legs, aluminum windrow deflectors, and rear manual control.
The Model 7600 truck features an 11 - 13-liter engine and a frame-rail system that allows for quick moving of heavy loads. Dual power steering gears and up to a 50-deg wheel cut offer maneuverability. The truck features an electrical system that allows the engine, transmission, instrument panel, and other components to directly communicate with each other.
Equipped with a 285-hp engine, the redesigned 300D articulated dump truck has increased hydraulic flow to improve cycle times. The body tipping angle reaches 70 deg, and the truck has a maximum speed of 31 mph. The machine weighs 40,100 lb and has a capacity of 21.6 cu yd.
