From August 20th, 2020 Prime Technologies is the official distributor of site dumpers by the renowned English manufacturer Thwaites - the company who invented and introduced the first dumper on the British market more than 60 years ago. By this partnership Prime Technologies successfully and synergistically expands its range of construction and utility machines, featuring the Japanese renowned brand Yanmar.
On the Bulgarian market Prime Technologies will offer the whole product range of the specialized site dumper manufacturer. It consists of nine basic models. The smallest dumper has 1 t payload and a hydrostatic transmission and features high tipping and power swivel tipping. Models with capacity of 1.5 t, 2.3 t, 3.5 t and 4.5 t are offered only with hydrostatic transmission and power swivel tip.
The most popular models of 2 t and 3 t payloads offer greater variety. The transmission can be ordered hydrostatic or manual and there is a choice of skip tipping in three versions: power swivel, high swivel or front tip.
The biggest models of 6 t and 9 t capacity feature even more versions. There is a choice for the transmission with torque convertor, which can be Powershift or Powershuttle, and the skip unloading is to select from front tipping or power swivel tipping. The operator is protected either by a level 2 ROPS structure or by level 2 FOPS full cab. A specific model is the 9 t Super Vis with an innovative skip design to ensure a much better visibility in front of the machine.
The evolution of Thwaites’ company has seen it develop from an agricultural innovator in the 1930’s. After the World War II the company supported the rebuilding of Britain in the late 1940’s, with the invention and production of the first site dumper to enter the UK market.
