New Holland Construction launch new C-Series dozers
Latest D125C, D150C and D180C models offer improved performance and fuel economy
NEW HOLLAND have expanded their product offering with the addition of three new C-Series dozer models ranging from 13 to 20 tonnes. Redesigned from the ground up, the latest C-Series machines makes a complete break from the previous generation to offer new features that will allow operators to work faster and save fuel.
The new dozers feature New Holland’s SCR technology, which delivers a 10.5% fuel saving compared to the previous generation, based on hourly fuel consumption. The 6.7-litre FPT Industrial engine delivers an incremental power of 9% for the D125C and D180C, and 16% for the D150C.
As a result, the engine is more reactive to load changes and the torque growth is higher to avoid big engine rev/min drops. The combined effect of New Holland’s SCR technology and the performance delivered by the powerful engine can drive the new models’ efficiency by up to 19%.
The latest C-Series models also feature a hydrostatic transmission that delivers best-in-class drawbar pull of 213kN for the D125C, 311kN for the D150C and 372kN for the D180C. The entire system has been redesigned with a new layout that ensures excellent cooling even in the hottest climate.
With this new layout the oil is delivered directly to radiators instead of the tank, which now operates as a reserve of cooled fluid to further improve performance (the air-to-boil level has been increased by 8% from 46 degrees C to 50 degrees C).
The chassis has been redesigned to increase reliability and provide better accessibility to components, while the blade cylinder geometry has been optimized to deliver faster reaction and higher pushing force.
The new box section design of the PAT frame is exceptionally strong and prevents twisting when working with the blade at an angle. In bulldozer configuration, the patented Equistatic device distributes the effort equally on the two push beams independently of the blade’s tilting, so that the wear of the frame and related components is reduced.
When working in abrasive conditions, the exclusive Advanced Track Life (ATL) tracks can be fitted on to the dozers as they last twice as long as standard lubricated tracks. The system consists of two coaxial bushes where the external one is free to rotate when in contact with a sprocket, reducing wear caused by friction. The sprocket has been modified with fewer teeth but with 40% more material under the tooth root area that triples the wear material between the teeth.
