The T14R can now go up to 5% faster - at 8 mph - than the previous model of the same name

Prinoth has upgraded its next generation Panther T14R rotating dumper, now featuring a 205 kW, Tier 4 Final Caterpillar C7.1 engine and faster travel speed.

According to the company, the T14R can now go up to 5% faster - at 8 mph - than the previous model of the same name. It has a payload capacity of 14.5 tons.

Patrick Hébert, product manager for the Panther, said, “Everyone knows that bigger payloads and faster cycle times deliver more productivity and bigger profit.

“That’s why we worked hard as a team to provide not only exceptional payload, but also the best payload to weight ratio in the industry. With this next generation, we now offer a 15% advantage in this critical category over our closest competitor by carrying less dead weight,” he added.

Major changes have also been made to the tracked dumper’s overall design. The T14R now has “unrestricted cab views” to improve operator visibility and help prevent onsite accidents.

Inside the cab, Prinoth has added new warning systems to the vehicle’s in-cab display and an “exclusive” single-touch drive-direction reset feature allows operators to perform easy turnarounds.

Prinoth said it has also improved the dumper’s hydrostatic drive motor settings to provide drivers with better responsiveness during high-torque activities.
