Variomec LF 090 D dumper is part of the Normet’s Heavy Duty L-series Variomec-system. The modular Variomec concept uses an articulated carrier and interchangeable work modules: a dump kit for rock hauling, a remixer kit for concrete transport and a boom lift kit for man lifting. Any combination can be converted to another in a couple of hours because the kits are fitted to the carrier using standardized connections.
Variomec LF 090 D is typically used in tunnelling projects with medium size tunnel cross sections. The maximum payload capacity is 16 t. The dump box capacity is 9 m³ and the tipping angle of the box is 65 degrees. The maximum height during tipping is 4.4 m. The dump box features a hatch which can be opened when the box is empty. This provides a good visibility when reversing. The other kits, the 4.4 m³ mixer kit and the 9 m lift kit can be delivered as additional equipment.
The powerful liquid cooled turbo charged Deutz 155 kW or MB 170 kW Tier 3 classified engine option provides clean and efficient operation. Maximum speed in horizontal tunnel is 18 km/h. The fully reversible 4 WD with high traction capability ensures safe and sure movement in difficult ground conditions. Efficient hydraulic dual-circuit oil immersed multi-disc brakes provide safe driving and braking.
Vehicle has optional front axle suspension system that improves driving safety and comfort and reduces fatique. The suspension system reduces vibration from wheels to the cabin and improves handling of the vehicle. The suspension system gives efficiency and speed to vehicle usage, with safety and comfort for the driver and the passenger.
The new Normet FOPS and ROPS approved safety cabin provides superior visibility and comfortable compartment for the driver and the passenger. Cabin is designed for safe and easy entry and exit. Door openings are wide and handrails and non-slip steps are correctly positioned. Dashboard is easy and simple to use. New multifunctional display (MID) provides driving information (speed, RPM, temperatures etc.) and information can be recorded for analysis. Enclosed cabin provides noise level < 75 dB ensuring safe and comfort driving.
Vehicle layout allows easy access to all service points, all daily checks can be done from the ground level.
