In 2000, Astra introduced a new model – the ADT articulated dump truck. The series included the ADT25 and ADT30 models. The design of the ADT dumpers with an articulated frame, provides maximum unification within the range.
The vehicles have attractive exterior design with the wedge-shaped front end and streamlined cabin, made in a typical Italian style. Carrying capacity is up to 27 tonnes. Gross weight is about 47 tonnes. The bodies have a capacity of up to 16.5 cubic meters.
The dump trucks are equipped with Cummins in-line 6-cylinder diesel engines with a power of up to 280 hp, Allison or ZF automatic transmissions providing 8 forward and 3-6 reverse gears, New Holland or ZF axles with double reverse gear, semi-independent suspension on hydropneumatic shock absorbers and disc brakes on all wheels.
By the end of the producing period, the vehicles got an updated front mask.
