Lift that dozer

The company is introducing its DLS series dozer lift system that is designed specifically for the task of hoisting Caterpillar D10 or D11 dozers at about 46mm a minute.

The dozer lift features a four-point custom synchronous lift system for safe load control with two separate lifting units that can be easily moved into position at each end of the dozer.

Each lifting unit includes two hydraulically operated jacks with motorised locking rings for users’ safe operation.

The jacks are bolted to a rolling cart with fork pockets and retractable wheels for easy, precise unit positioning.

The front and rear lifting jacks are driven by a hydraulic power unit and controls that include a 7.62m pendant for operator mobility and safety during lifts.

The HPU and controls are contained in a rolling cabinet that includes storage for cable reels and hoses.

The controls include a programmable logic controller and software to monitor and control a maximum of four lifting points simultaneously.

There is a colour touch screen mounted inside the cabinet, enabling the operator to remotely monitor key lifting information such as lifting height and load.

A single hydraulic unit has the capacity to operate up to six lifting units.

Lifting and lowering operations can be paused at any point. The system automatically secures the load mechanically until the operator is ready to lift or lower the dozer again.

A built-in alarm system will stop the lift in the event of a malfunction.

Regardless of weight distribution, the system is designed to lift and lower a dozer synchronously between all lift points.

It also will fit beneath dozers with 90% track wear, providing enough height clearance to perform track maintenance.
