Piaskarz is running five of Dressta’s latest TD-15M extra medium-sized dozers.
Piaskarz, a Polish sand producer, employs 11 Dressta crawler dozers, including five of the original equipment manufacturer’s latest TD-15M extra medium-sized dozer. Each model has so far amassed between 5 000 and 7 000 hours without major fault since they were first deployed in 2007.
The TD-15M Extra also benefits from Dressta’s long-standing partnership with Cummins, incorporating a QSC8.3 engine with 190hp, complying with EU Stage IIIA emission standards. As well as sharing the safety and operability features of the 534E wheel loader, the TD-15M Extra boasts its own special characteristics.
The principal tasks for the crawler dozers at Piaskarz sites are to remove overburden, form shafts and manoeuvre crushed minerals to various locations around each plant. In order to do so effectively, Dressta can equip the bulldozers with robust attachments on four different chassis types – standard, XL, LT and WT.
This includes a multi-shank ripper to provide deep penetration of tough ground types, and a multitude of blade options. For Piaskarz, the bevelled 3,8m³ blade is a great solution for pushing excavated material, backfilling and equalising terrain. The Dressta blades also feature a hydraulically-powered tilt function – enabling the operator to easily adapt the machine to the worksite and perfect the final formation of the surface.
