Shantui Construction Machinery Co., a multinational based in Shandong, China, has launched its SD10YE bulldozer, the company's first product to enter the U.S. market. The SD10YE is certified by TÜV SÜD America as Tier III emissions compliant, runs on hydrostatics and comes standard with a 100-hp Cummins engine.
The SD10YE is targeted for smaller projects, but is designed to be tough, durable, environmentally friendly and economical. "This is our first product that meets the stringent emission standards of Europe and the USA. It is on the vanguard of a whole line of new products that we will be introducing in the coming years," said Richard Li, vice president for International. "Our aggressive investment in R&D these past few years is starting to show handsome results with the launch of the SD10YE."
Features such as intelligent GPS service, an automatic alarm system and auto-diagnostic functions keep uptime at a maximum. The fully enclosed hexahedron–style cabin provides for low noise and vibration, and a high-capacity climate control system circulates air and defrosts.
At CONEXPO-CON/AGG, Shantui also demonstrated its diverse product lines. In addition to the SD10YE, it displayed its workhorse SD32W bulldozer, SL60W wheel loader, SR12P-5 road roller, SG18-3 motor grader, JCM 921C excavator, HJC5270THB truck-mounted boom concrete pump and the HBT8016R concrete trailer pump.
