Compact dumper

Dominion Equipment Parts, LLC, has introduced the Italian-built Fiori articulated dumper line to the United States market.

Fiori D40 compact dumper
The Fiori D40 articulated compact dumper offered by Dominion Equipment Parts is the most compact vehicle in its class.

The first model to be available is the Fiori D40, the most compact vehicle in its class, providing 180-degree bed rotation and three-way dumping in a package that is just over 13 feet long.

Made especially for tight spaces and job sites with restricted access, the unit’s reliable 49 hp Yanmar diesel engine, four-wheel drive hydrostatic transmission and articulated frame makes it a popular choice for construction sites.

The bed rotation and three-way dumping allow the operator to best position the load. The dumper can be used for a wide variety of loads, including dirt, debris or even pouring concrete.

Fiori dumpers are engineered for safety, offering two-way driving and excellent visibility in all directions. The open cab meets ROPS and FOPS Level 1 criteria and the ergonomic seat and controls protect the operator from unnecessary fatigue and strain.

Productivity is a hallmark of the Fiori design. Although compact, Fiori dumpers have an enviable payload capacity-to-weight ratio. The D40 also comes standard with four forward and four reverse gears that allow the dumper to traverse the job site at 3 to 12.5 mph.

“We dedicated well over a year to finding just the right compact dumper for the U.S. and Canadian market,” said Curt Unger, Dominion Equipment’s vice president of sales. “And with the Fiori dumper line, we’ve found a winner. Fiori is respected around the world for its innovation and dependability in tough job applications. There is no doubt in my mind that U.S. contractors will be very pleased with this product line’s performance.”

The D40 articulated dumper is the first unit to be offered, with two larger models coming later in 2017. Fiori also manufactures a line of compact off road concrete mixers.
