Over 139,000 people visited North America’s largest construction trade show, Conexpo-Con/Agg, meaning that this year there were more attendees than ever before. AUSA had an important role to play at this event, exhibiting several of its most popular models, as well as launching its first fully electric dumper in North America, the D151AEG.
During a hectic week, AUSA surpassed its highest forecasts and a large number of potential customers came to see first-hand the manufacturer’s dumpers, rough terrain forklifts and telehandlers.
“We are extremely pleased with the results achieved at this year’s Conexpo-Con/Agg. We came to the trade show with high expectations, but the response to our products, especially the D151AEG electric dumper, was even better than we had initially anticipated”, remarked Ignasi Moner, AUSA US Corp CEO. “The dumper has a long journey ahead in North America. We are a major player in the European dumper market and we have been taking innovative ideas and concepts over to North America for a number of years. There is growing appreciation for the value of our products and our commitment to service in the construction sector, as demonstrated by our rapidly expanding dealer network. Our machines are increasingly successful and popular in this market.”
The three product ranges
This year, AUSA exhibited its recently launched electric dumper, the D151AEG, with a payload of 1,500 kg (3,300 lb) and 900 liter (1.18 cu yd) and a side tipping skip. Thanks to its new, fully electric technology, it can complete a full shift on a single charge and features an integrated charger that can quick charge the battery from 20% to 80% in just two hours (230 V).
The DR601AHG reversible drive dumper was also on the show floor. With its 3,150 liter (4.3 cu yd) swivel skip, along with the rotating operator’s position, this model is an ideal solution for road construction or confined space projects.
Other machines that were showcased at the 3,000 sq. ft. booth include the 2,130 liter/3,500 kg (2.78 cu yd/7,700 lb) capacity D350AHG dumper, the 2,500 kg (5,000 lb) and 5,000 kg (11,000 lb) capacity C251H and C501H rough terrain forklifts, and the T235H telehandler, with a 2,300 kg (5,000 lb) payload and a maximum lift of 5 meter (16.4 feet).
