After five years of development, thousands of test hours in extreme conditions, the Dramis D55T truck is on its way to the Chilean salt mines.

A total of seven trucks will join the Excon Construcciòn fleet, one of the biggest ore transportation companies in South America.

With a payload of 55 metrics tons, Excon Construcciòn will be able to greatly increase its production, according to Denys Dufour, Simard Suspensions sales manager.

The Dramis benefits of a superior payload and also operates faster. With its active hydraulic suspension and adapted gear ratio, it is able to circulate up to 90km/h, giving it the capacity to do more cycles than articulated or rigid trucks.

The cost per ton of the Dramis D55T is the most profitable of its category. Built on a class 8 vocational truck chassis, its purchase price is less than its competition, and its maintenance does not require a specialized technician. Its fuel consumption cost is between 15 and 20l/hour depending on the configuration. Another decisive advantage, the Dramis can circulate unloaded legally on road that offers the opportunity to move from site to site without requiring a trailer or special permits.

Totally assembled in Québec, Canada, the Dramis is available in many configurations and adaptable on all vocational commercial trucks in North America such as Mack/Volvo, Kenworth/Peterbilt, Freightliner/Western Star, and soon to be the new International HX.
