Develon has underscored its very successful debut at the Plantworx Exhibition by winning the Best Live Demonstration Award from the organisers, recognizing the best overall use of outdoor space and best stand set up. The Best Live Demonstration Award is one of the onsite awards for those exhibitors at Plantworx who made a big impact on the onsite judges who assessed companies’ stands and demonstration areas. The awards were presented at the Exhibitor’s Reception on the first evening of the show.
The Best Live Demonstration Award category was judged by Nick Drew (Earthmovers) and Peter Haddock (Content with Media) – who were unanimous that this prize should go to Develon. They said:
“There was a lot of thought and preparation that went into this stand – it really had the wow factor. The stand and the demo area have a really nice feel and flow and the whole stand was not just a ‘Tent in a field’ but a truly impressive stand.”
Kevin Lynch, Marketing Communications Manager for Develon, said:
“We are delighted to win The Best Live Demonstration Award, especially with the transition we are making with the Develon brand and making its first appearance at Plantworx. The excellent Demo show on the stand carried out by our operators, Nigel Horton and Alex Humpage, brings across the high performance, innovation, versatility and durability of Develon equipment in an exciting and very watchable way.”
The Demonstration area on the Develon stand at Plantworx features the new DX250WMH-7 material handler being launched at the show. Joining the DX250WMH-7 in the Demonstration area is the Develon DL80-7 compact wheel loader, the DX55R-7 5.7 tonne mini-excavator, the DX225LC-7 23 tonne crawler excavator and the DL420CVT-7 wheel loader.
The DX250WMH-7 is one of several products on display being seen for the first time in the UK. They include the new DX63-7 6 tonne mini-excavator and the new 14.6 tonne DX140LC-7K crawler excavator in the Static section of the stand.
New Develon Excavators
Together with the DX62R-7, the DX63-7 is one of two new 6 tonne mini-excavators from Develon, completing the roll out of the next generation of machines from the company, with a new shared global styling design. Both models are powered by the D24 Stage V compliant diesel engine providing 44.3 kW of power. Despite offering an 8% increased torque of 26.5 kgm/rpm, the D24 engine still provides a 7% decrease in engine fuel consumption. Like all of Develon’s new generation mini-excavators, the DX63-7 is designed to offer maximum performance, optimum stability, increased versatility, enhanced operator comfort, controllability, durability, ease of maintenance and serviceability.
The new DX140LC-7K 14.6 tonne crawler excavator, replaces the company’s successful DX140LC-7 model.
Whilst the performance and working range are the same as the DX140LC-7, the new machine incorporates many improvements that enhance safety and convenience both for the operator and for working on site, together with a better operator experience, particularly from a maintenance point of view.
The upgraded serviceability of the DX140LC-7K includes better access to the DEF tank and the fuel refilling hose. This is combined with a much easier approach for the operator to the engine compartment via new anti-slip steps and handrails positioned behind the cab. The DX140LC-7K also has a new flattened engine cover design that has reduced the maximum height of cover components on the back of the machine from 1285.5 mm and 1320 mm down to a uniform 1070 mm across all of the back of the machine. This now offers much better visibility for the operator both to the rear and to the right hand side of the machine.
Joining the DX63-7 and DX140LC-7K in the Static area of the Develon stand is the DX27Z-7 and DX85R-7 mini-excavators, the DX100W-7 wheeled excavator, the DL80TL-7 compact wheel loader and the DL280-7 wheel loader.
New DX250WMH-7 Material Handler
Equipped with an MG22 Sorting Grapple, the new DX250WMH-7 25 tonne Stage V compliant material handler is being demonstrated by Develon for the first time in the UK, for use in the solid waste, recycling, demolition and forestry industries. Designed to carry out the toughest tasks, the DX250WMH-7 is built with front and rear stabilizers, and a boom and arm specifically designed for material handling tasks. A standard feature is the hydraulic cab riser, which gives the operator better all-around visibility of the attachment and work area.
The DX250WMH-7 material handler is easy to operate with ergonomic joysticks and a steering wheel. The machine comes equipped with two-way auxiliary and rotate circuit hydraulics to improve efficiency. The operator can use buttons on the joysticks or an optional foot pedal to control auxiliary attachments. The new DX250WMH-7 material handler is powered by the 6-cylinder, turbocharged Develon DL06V water-cooled diesel engine, providing an output of 141 kW at 1900 RPM.
