DEVELON DA30-5–ARTICULATED DUMP TRUCKS
WORK HARDER IN DIFFICULT TERRAIN
With the DA30-5 articulated dump truck, you’ll move more materials faster, work harder in tough conditions and navigate roadways and difficult terrain with ease.
The unique DEVELON truck design with a front-mounted turning ring, sloping rear frame and free-swinging rear tandem bogie provides better weight distribution and ensures permanent six-wheel contact with the ground. The limited slip differential provides the highest torque to the wheel, with the best grip for extreme performance in off-road conditions.
To protect against overloading, a standard active payload meter uses traffic light indicators to alert operators.
The DA30-5 includes a hydro-gas, self-leveling front suspension system for superior performance and greater shock absorption. The new system provides a smoother ride and increased operator comfort, especially when operating an empty truck. The system is self-leveling and gives you the option to change characteristics by adjusting the pressure.
When it’s time to head out to another job, this truck’s less-than-10-foot width means it can be transported easily from site to site.
EASY TO SERVICE
Easy service access makes routine maintenance and required daily service checks more convenient. Features include ground-level fuel and DEF fill, more accessible power module and centralized maintenance panel.
Common oil is used in the wheel hubs, tandem rear bogie and limited slip differential, and grease distribution is improved to reduce grease requirements. A diesel-powered engine heater and fuel pump are available options. The DA30-5 articulated dump truck includes DEVELON Fleet Management that monitor the machine’s productivity, location and overall health via free cellular service available for the life of the truck.
UNMATCHED INTERIOR CAB COMFORT
Comfort features include fully automatic climate control, air suspension seat, good visibility, precise steering and low noise levels. Ergonomic controls are at your fingertips for easy operation, and the automotive-like soft-touch dashboard is easier to keep clean.
The vehicle control unit offers more robust hardware, a faster processor and more input channels. The monitor displays critical information, including speed, engine rpm, machine warnings and more — with larger gauges, user-friendly icons and the ability to display multiple camera views. Standard features include electrically adjustable mirrors and a mobile USB charger.
TIER 4 TECHNOLOGY
The DA30-5 articulated dump truck incorporates a high-pressure common-rail (HPCR) fuel delivery system as well as cooled exhaust gas recirculation (CEGR) combined with a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) and selective catalyst reduction (SCR) to reach Tier emissions standards.
HAUL WITH CONFIDENCE
High productivity means more material moved every day. The DEVELON articulated dump truck (ADT) lineup offers larger load capacities in their respective weight class categories along with superior power and traction. Each model is reliable, dependable, and cost-effective. Backed by more than 40 years of excellence in the ADT market, DEVELON ADTs are built for tough hauling conditions and travel over 34 miles per hour. With sure-footed traction, maximum ground contact and a quick-unloading tailgate, they are ideal for applications such as construction sites, road projects, mass excavation, mining, and quarrying environments.
Engine sizes, torque and horsepower have been carefully selected to achieve max performance across criteria including load capacity, driveline ratio performance and transmission efficiency. And DEVELON leads the industry in power-to-weight ratio.
STEADY PERFORMANCE EVERY TIME
A strong frame and body design with lightweight, high-grade, wear-resistant steel reduces the total weight of the truck. This leads to less horsepower required for operation. In addition, the transmission configuration features smooth gear shifting and improves the transfer of power from the engine to the driveline.
For more reliable dumping performance, a center of gravity adjustment assists in managing load placement during dumping. If a load starts to pull the hoist cylinders backward, the system adjusts to slow down the dumping speed of the truck body, letting you prevent spillage or unexpected dumping.
WORK HARDER IN DIFFICULT TERRAIN.
A key feature of DEVELON ADTs is the front-mounted turning ring which, with the free-swinging rear tandem gear-driven bogie, allows permanent 6-wheel contact for smoother rides in very rough and soft terrain. Greater shock absorption from the new hydro-gas, self-leveling front suspension adds to increased stability as the trucks move across jobsites.
A sloping rear frame, in combination with the track width, provides a lower center of gravity, which increases lateral stability and eliminates the need for wide, low-profile tires. A gradient meter helps you monitor the incline and pitch for improved safety.
RELIABILITY & MAINTENANCE
DESIGNED FOR DURABILITY.
The reliability of DEVELON articulated dump trucks sets them apart from the rest. How? Durable components and proven manufacturing processes. Specifically designed engine and transmission components are thoroughly tested to maximize the quality of the trucks.
VEHICLE CONTROL UNIT KEEPS YOU INFORMED
The Vehicle Control Unit (VCU) on DEVELON ADTs displays on a new in-cab monitor with larger gauges and intuitive graphics controlled by display panel buttons. Increased visibility around the truck comes via the rearview camera viewable on the main display. You can also quickly check machine status, service and settings by toggling through the on-screen menu.
MAINTENANCE WITHIN YOUR REACH
DEVELON ADTs are designed to make maintenance easy. Ground-level filling for fuel and diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) allow for easier access. A centralized maintenance panel also offers ground access to transmission filters and drain ports as well as the auto-lube system, grease storage and more.
The updated cab structure and mounting provide easier transmission service when needed.
The ADT power module also features easier access with an emergency shutdown button and lockable battery disconnect switch.
COMFORT & INSTRUMENTS
UNPARALLELED LEVELS OF COMFORT.
Whether you face long days or rugged jobsites, you’ll stay comfortable in a DEVELON articulated dump truck — even when conditions are at their worst.
The cabin design offers unparalleled levels of comfort and meets both Rollover Protective Structure (ROPS) and Falling Object Protective (FOPS) criteria. Features include air conditioning, an air suspension seat, precise steering, good visibility and low noise levels. A sloping hood provides an excellent view from the cab. Fully automatic climate control and a rubber suspension cab mounting provide improved operating conditions.
MORE CRITICAL INFORMATION AT A GLANCE
DEVELON ADTs keep you in the know with a new active payload measuring system that shows each load’s weight on-screen for increased load optimization and productivity. Outside the cab, a traffic-light-style indicator helps excavator and wheel loader operators prevent overloading.
The easy-to-read, multi-function 7-inch display easily relays additional critical info including speed, engine rpm, machine warnings, temperatures and more. Monitor fuel and DEF usage with gauges displaying both levels and consumption. An on-screen gradient meter also offers improved safety.
MORE PRECISION AT YOUR FINGERTIPS
Inside the cab of select models, you’ll find a fingertip-controlled body-dumping lever located next to the gear selection lever. Control of the body dumping is done with minimal operator strain. The hoist function incorporates a higher body-up speed and automatic body-down features, providing a soft, controlled lowering of the dump body that improves ease of operation and control.
The “tiptronic” gear shift feature enables you to run the truck in both automatic and manual to ensure the smoothest gear shifts and momentum during operation. Add to that the benefit of low cabin vibration provided by rubber suspension mounts.
