AUSA, manufacturer of compact all-terrain industrial vehicles, will be displaying its lineup of dumpers, rough-terrain forklifts and telehandlers at CONEXPO-CON/AGG, March 14-18 in Las Vegas, including its new zero-emissions electric dumper, the D151AEG.
First unveiled at Bauma 2022, the new 1.18-cu yd/3,300-lb. D151AEG is powered by lithium-ion batteries and can complete a full shift on a single charge, the company says. It features an integrated charger that can quick charge the battery from 20% to 80% in just two hours.
Clean and quiet, the new D151AEG is designed to help contractors comply with increasing environmental and noise regulations in urban areas.
Also on display will be the DR601AHG reversible drive dumper. Its 4.3-cu-yd swivel skip, along with the rotating operator’s position, makes this model ideal for road construction or confined space projects, according to the company.
Other machines that will be showcased in Las Vegas include the 2.78-cu-yd/7,700-lb. capacity D350AHG dumper, the 5,000-lb. and 11,000-lb. capacity C251H and C501H rough-terrain forklifts, and the T235H telehandler, with a 5,000-lb. payload and maximum lift of 16.4 feet.
“We are looking forward to a great show and to introduce our first electric dumper to the North American market,” said Ignasi Moner, AUSA country manager. “Our dumpers are proving to be very popular here in the U.S., and with demand for zero emission equipment growing, we think this is the perfect time to introduce this new model to the market.”
In North America, AUSA products are sold and supported by a network of more than 75 dealer locations. AUSA says it is continuing to expand this network and expects to have 100% nationwide coverage by the end of 2023.
