Welcome to the future of the construction industry with the Hydrema DT6 - a ground-breaking dumper truck that sets new standards. Not only is the DT6 Hydrema's smallest dump truck with an impressive load capacity of 5.5 tonnes, it's also the company's first fully electric dump truck.


The DT6 is tailor-made for urban areas where space can be tight and where there are strict requirements for noise levels and environmental considerations. Its compact size and electric powertrain make it ideal for any project that requires a reliable and efficient solution.

With the DT6, Hydrema has created a groundbreaking hauler that not only solves today's construction challenges, but also sets the standard for the environmentally friendly and efficient machines of the future. Experience the future with the Hydrema DT6.


The Hydrema DT6 is more than just a dump truck - it's a manifestation of advanced technology and innovation. At the heart of the DT6's impressive performance lies its groundbreaking electrical system.

This electrical system is designed with a clear vision to deliver maximum efficiency and minimal energy loss. It is based on a water-cooled 96V ZF eTrac engine, transmission and axles, which together create an incredibly powerful powertrain. With an output of 29 kW continuous and 69 kW maximum, the DT6 can handle even the most demanding tasks with ease.

But the efficiency doesn't stop there. The DT6's electrical system also includes a separate electrically driven hydraulic pump that is only activated when needed, which not only minimises energy loss but also significantly reduces noise levels. With a hydraulic power of 14 kW, the machine can handle steering, tipping and other auxiliary functions with precision and reliability.


The electrical system in the DT6 is divided into two parts: a 96V system and a 24V system. The 96V system is powered by the 8 liquid-cooled lithium-ion batteries (NMC), which are located on each side of the cab and have a total capacity of 63 kWh. This system supplies power to the cooling motor, the hydraulic pump motor and the machine's heater. In addition, this system also charges the machine's two 12-volt batteries, ensuring reliable power supply to all vital components of the DT6.


This electric dump truck is powered by powerful water-cooled lithium-ion batteries with a capacity of 63 kWh. These advanced batteries not only deliver maximum efficiency and power, but they are also equipped with a sophisticated thermal battery management system. This system ensures that the batteries always maintain optimal conditions, which not only extends their lifespan, but also ensures reliable performance for years to come. Expected battery life for the DT6 is an impressive 8-10 years, making it a durable and reliable solution for construction applications.


The electric driveline that powers the DT6 has been developed with a focus on meeting the high demands for performance, efficiency and environmental friendliness. This innovative platform delivers maximum efficiency with minimal energy loss and maintains low noise levels, making it ideal for working in noise-sensitive areas. At the centre of this driveline is the water-cooled 96 V ZF eTrac-motor, which controls both the transmission and axles. With continuous power of 29 kW and a maximum power of 69 kW, this electric driveline is a reliable power source for any task.


To ensure continuous operation and maximum uptime, the DT6 has an efficient charging solution. It is equipped with a powerful 18 kW integrated fast charger that allows for efficient charging. This charger is versatile and can be connected to either a standard type 2 charging station or a CCE 32A socket. Under normal working conditions, the DT6 only needs charging during work breaks, allowing for uninterrupted work and optimal productivity every day.


The DT6 is equipped with a chassis that has a central articulated pivot point and two dual-acting hydraulic stabilisers in the articulated joint. These stabilisers play a crucial role in maintaining great stability, both while driving and when tipping the machine. This chassis design gives the operator the necessary safety and control, even on uneven terrain, making the DT6 a reliable and efficient work partner.


The DT6 comes with fixed heavy-duty axles with planetary gears in the hubs. The rear axle has a 100% differential lock with electric operation and an automatic limited slip differential lock on the front axle. These axles are also equipped with integrated self-adjusting disc brakes and have separate oil compartments for the differential and hubs.


The DT6 has a precise and safe steering system with a separate electric motor driving the hydrostatic Load Sensing articulated steering. Two dual-acting cylinders provide precise steering, and the system also includes a priority valve and integrated emergency steering for added safety. The steering cylinders are damped for smooth steering and the DT6 can achieve a maximum steering angle of +/- 38 degrees for excellent manoeuvrability.


The Hydremas DT6 has a reliable braking system with hydraulic disc brakes at all 4 wheels. It is self-adjusting and maintenance-free. In addition, it has a fail-safe parking brake that is electro-hydraulically activated for extra safety.


The hydraulic system used in the DT6 is an impressive technological solution. It includes a separate electrically driven hydraulic pump designed to control various machine functions, such as steering, tipping and other auxiliary functions. What's remarkable about this system is that the hydraulic pump is only activated when needed. This not only reduces energy consumption, but also ensures that the machine operates quietly. With a hydraulic power of 14 kW, this system is a reliable and efficient component of the DT6's performance package.


The DT6 offers a convenient single-pedal drive that makes it easy for the operator to control the machine. There are three different drive programmes available: Power, Normal and Eco. Each programme has different acceleration and energy utilisation settings, giving the operator the flexibility to adapt the machine's performance as needed. Regardless of which programme is selected, the DT6 has an impressive maximum speed of 20 km/h.


The Hydremas DT6 has two separate cooling systems. One climate system cools high-voltage components and batteries, while the second system involves water cooling of the drive motor, driveline inverter and hydraulic system. This system is designed to operate efficiently in ambient temperatures up to +46°C and ensures optimal operation in various weather conditions.


To maximise comfort, the cab features a suspension seat that can be selected as either mechanical or air suspension, ensuring a comfortable driving experience even during longer working days. In addition, both the steering wheel and the electric joystick in the armrest are adjustable, allowing the operator to find the optimal setting for their needs, contributing to a more ergonomic and comfortable working day.


The spacious dump body of the DT6 has a volume of 3.5 m3. The body is made of robotically welded high-strength steel, ensuring both durability and reliability in even the most demanding work situations.

The design of the body includes a 69° tip angle, which allows the bottom of the body to tilt to 45° from horizontal. This makes it easy to unload materials with precision and efficiency, which is crucial for productivity on the jobsite.


The DT6 has a handy MultiTip function that enables fast unloading backwards and to both sides. This system, powered by powerful dual-acting cylinders, allows an impressive 180-degree tipping angle. This means the DT6 can unload materials with precision and efficiency, regardless of the terrain, in just 10 seconds up and 7 seconds down.
