By understanding customers feedback, NTD have been instrumental in the reintroduction to the UK market of modern 360˚ slewing tracked dumpers. These machines offer further benefits to standard swivel skip or rigid tracked dumpers because the operator can always be driving forward and there is rarely a need to reverse. Because just the upper structure can rotate, NTD’s slewing tracked dumpers reduce the need to turn using the tracks at the end of each journey which saves both ground conditions and track wear.
NTD is committed to offering the safest tracked dumpers available to hire in the UK by exceeding both the manufacturers and current legislative conformity and specification. This is achieved by:
- Isolating the hydraulics with a “dead mans” isolating device.
- Isolating the hydraulics with a lap belt that will not allow the machine to move without the operator having their seatbelt fastened – which can be seen externally by a green flashing beacon being illuminated.
- Fitting reversing cameras and side mirrors where appropriate
- Offering fully rotating and slewing machines across the fleet to prevent the need for reversing and turning.
NTD continue to be involved in new product development with the best manufacturers to ensure the product is designed with the most demanding UK conditions in mind. To also help lead innovation, safety and to push for further environmental improvements.
Offering the latest engines with the very lowest emissions and all machines being supplied with biodegradable hydraulic oil as standard.
