Hinowa introduces TX2500 tracked transporter with 3-way dump bed


Hinowa has now launched the TX2500 transporter with a three-way dump bed, a development of the previous version with a swivel dump bed. Today, the thee-way dumper bed version offers an additional function that allows for tipping to be performed on three sides, with the automatic opening and closing of the sides.

The TX2500 is therefore an ideal tracked vehicle for loading and unloading materials in a quick and safe manner. With an almost 50hp engine, it is capable of handling the most difficult and uneven terrain. Each component has been specifically designed to ensure maximum comfort and performance.

The technical data sheet offers a detailed overview of the unit’s specifications: a maximum capacity of 2500kg; six rollers on each side (two fixed and four floating); a comfortable seat capable of rotating 180°; and FOPS structure for the operator’s protection.

A large diesel tank and a hydraulic oil cooling system guarantee maximum performance and allow for an intensive work pace. The special rubber tracks with mobile rollers allow the TX2500 tracked transporter to reach a surprisingly high speed for its category: up to 11 km/h.

In addition to these advanced performance levels, with respect to the previous model with a swivel dumper bed, this new version also offers the capability of three-way dumper bed tipping for even faster unloading operations. A more in-depth analysis of the technical specifications, which include a load capacity of 1.36m³, two speeds (0-6 km/h and 0-11 km/h), and a weight of 2700kg, reveals how this machine guarantees optimal performance under any operating conditions. Despite its power, with a length of 3.3m, a lowered dump bed height of 1.4m, and a width of just 1.7m, the TX2500 is a super-compact tracked vehicle that’s exceptionally easy to maneuver, even in confined spaces.

The tipping of the dump bed is controlled by a telescopic cylinder, which is connected by articulated joints that allow for movements on three sides with an angle of 55°. The new model is even equipped with an intelligent unloading system that automatically opens and closes the sides. Each side of the bed is closed by two pivots; in order to prevent errors during the operations, when one side is opened, a specially designed safety system ensures that the others remain closed.

The design features and high quality components of each model guarantee exceptional reliability. The driver’s position has been rendered safe and comfortable thanks to an anatomic seat, a covered structure, safety belts, and a frontal support. A rear view mirror and the possibility of rotating the driver’s seat by 180° guarantee excellent visibility from any angle. The operator can therefore maneuver the vehicle from both directions, while at the same time monitoring everything happening around them.

The TX2500 tracked transporter is also extremely easy to drive. The control system is managed by a hydraulic system of the latest generation with top-of-the-line components that ensure maximum precision. The unit is also rendered easy to drive thanks to a simple and intuitive control panel, which greatly simplifies the operator’s job.

Even on a 2700kg machine like the TX2500, the details make all the difference. The intuitiveness and precision of the control panel, the top-of-the-line components, the ease of access to critical maintenance points, the 40-liter diesel tank, the 2500kg load capacity, the cooling system, and the travel speed from 6km/h to 11km/h – these are all features that render this tracked vehicle a valuable ally for improving work quality, maximizing efficiency, and enhancing productivity.
