Small dimensions allow to move in small spaces, but at the same time it has a carrying capacity up to 4 m3. Looking closely at it, what strikes most is the unmistakable Made in Italy style and the design, unusual for this type of machine, that matches aesthetics, quality, technology, functionality and ergonomics. An electrically operated hydraulic transmission, a hydraulic pump and two hydraulic engines mounted directly on the axles ensure maximum traction, reliability and minimum fuel consumption. Four driving and steering wheels and a sturdy frame ensure high agility. High safety is due to the drum rotation control during vehicle movement and safety systems to block the drum when carrying out maintenance. The machine functions are controlled by CSD (Control Speed Drive), driving safety is guaranteed by ROPS-FOPS closed cabin, and visibility by infrared rear-view camera for manoeuvres in tunnels. Available on request are the electronic sensors for obstacles detection and active fire control system. The engine is Diesel Perkins STEP 3-A.
