With 7 key features,the new 7-tonne machine gives operators greater visibility, stability and ease of use.

Launching the Super SevenThwaites MD Ian Brown said, “The objective of the Super Sevenisto deliver 7 key improvements that will enable enhanced operator visibilityand greater stability. Focused on ensuring risk is reduced for both siteworkers and the operator, whilst increasing payload and productivity”.

The machine,designed by the Thwaites Warwickshire based engineering team,who were driven by the vision ofimproving the operator’s ability to be seen, without sacrificing the effectiveness of the dumper’s capabilities on site.

This resulted in the following 7 new features being implemented into the final machinedesign.

3. ADVANCED 180º FRONT-FACING CAMERA: Provides a clear view of the front blind spot for low-speed manoeuvring.

4. WIDER TRACK FOR GREATER STABILITY: Using axles normally found on our 9-tonnedumper, gives this machinea wider, more stable track.

5. BEST IN CLASS GROUND CLEARANCE: Allows for effortless travel over ruts and uneven ground on any site.

6. COMPLIANT STAGE V ENGINE (NO AD BLUE): A clean, efficient engine with plenty of power whenever you need it.
