Rosenort MB, Canada – K-Tec Earthmovers Inc today announced the launch of its latest and largest construction pull scraper. The K-Tec 1254 ADT (Articulating Dump Truck) is the world™s largest earthmoving scraper available on the market today. With a heaped capacity of 54 cubic yards (ISO) and empty tare weight of 49,000 lbs, the K-Tec 1254 ADT will literally move mountains. Designed to be pulled with a 6-wheel drive 40 Ton+ ADT, this scraper is ready to help contractor™s substantially reduce their dirt moving costs. To maximize the 1254™s capacity, a push dozer/tractor in the cut is recommended. For contractors with excavators, the K-Tec 1254 ADT works very well as a haul wagon. The large target area makes for easy, fast loading.
A leading general contractor who, for competitive reasons, wishes to remain anonymous has purchased the first K-Tec 1254 ADT and is using it on a job in northern Texas. They are currently running a fleet of CAT 627™s, and 631™s. The crew is very happy with the productivity of the K-Tec verses their current equipment. After intense analyses, we have proven that the K-Tec is hauling 40% more material while maintaining the same loading and cycle speeds of a CAT 631 says the contractor. With those kinds of numbers, I feel very confident in saying that the K-Tec ADT Series is the way of the future.
The K-Tec 1254 ADT was developed from the K-Tec 1243 ADT. The extra 11 yards comes from the 2 foot higher side wall. We had a successful, high exposure demonstration with the K-Tec 1243 ADT in June of 2009 in California, says President Ken Rempel. The contractors present at the demo were impressed with this easy loading, high volume machine. We decided to take the scraper market to yet another level, and build a 54 yard earthmover. K-Tec has seen a need for a larger, more efficient scraper for large contractors. The K-Tec 1243 ADT and 1254 ADT will fill this current need.
Caterpillar has recently announced that their ADT trucks are rated to pull a haul wagon that has a similar over all weight. President Ken Rempel says when considering this announcement and studying the numbers, he is confident that the K-Tec 1254 ADT will be the preferred earthmover. With the introduction of the K-Tec 1254 ADT, K-Tec has a scraper for every contractor in any dirt application. Whether it is a contractor with one or two scrapers, or 50+ scrapers, K-Tec has an earthmover that will outperform the competition. Not only does the K-Tec scraper have the potential to outperform your existing equipment, you also have the confidence of durability with the K-Tec™s 3-Year standard structural warranty. KTec™s current models range from 25 yards to 54 yards. Three of these models can be pulled by ADT Trucks. K-Tec Earthmovers Inc. is a Canadian based earthmover manufacturer focused on the continuous development of innovations leading to durable, highly productive earthmovers.
