Gearbox and Control
500kg capacity and 8,7 km/h maximal speed allows fast transportation of whatever load.
With 4 forward gears and 3 reverse gears you will always get the correct gear ration to amply meet all requirements of the numerous possibilities of use.
All control levers of the Dumper 507 are ergonomic and easy to use. The levers were designed so to reduce the necessary force required to activate them; the result is practical and simple to operate controls. The steering system of the Dumper 507 designed by Grillo allows the drive’s gradual modulation by acting on the steering levers. Dumper 507 can make very tight curves by keeping one rubber track blocked as well as with a modulated radius also a wide radius. It’s that easy!
During the first movement step, traction is taken away from one of the two steering levers and, by continuing the movement, you will progressively slowdown the rubber track by means of the brake drum. This is the secret of the Dumper 507’s extreme maneuverability!
Reliable, long lasting and safe
The Dumper 507’s rubber tracks are supported by steel rollers mounted on bushings and grease points, these are very important features to ensure high reliability and longevity over the years.
The front steel rollers are fitted with compensation springs which turn out to be useful in case of debris infiltrating the rollers or in between the rubber track and drive crown wheel thereby avoiding any damage which may occur and always ensuring that the belts are correctly tensioned.
The rubber tracks profile allows traction under types of soil conditions and gives good stability and safety especially on soils with little load bearing capacity, crumbly soil or soil located on steep slopes. No soil type is too difficult for Dumper 507!
The rubber track’s front inclination allows you to climb over steps of other obstacles. Dumper 507 is a safe machine! It’s possible to stop quickly at all times the Dumper 507 by simply releasing the control lever. The automatic brake of the Dumper 507 will activate immediately ensuring so an immediate stop even when fully loaded and also on slopes up to 48%!
Petrol Engine options
You have the possibility to choose among two available engine types, i.e. Subaru EX 17 petrol engine and Lombardini 15LD350 diesel engine. Both engines have excellent torque characteristics at lower rpm. The engines of Dumper 507 are modern and employ the latest technology; with low emissions and noise reduction; they are available both with recoil starter and electric starter.
Areas and Accessories
Dumper 507 is an ideal carrier for the use in the most different sectors: on the countryside, on construction sites, in snow, in agriculture, zoo-tech, industry, distribution and gardening to name just a few. There is a large range of accessories, such as the choice between two bodies, standard or “Dumper” 230 L with automatic opening. It’s possible to use the frontal hydraulic tipping system to connect an all purpose flail, sweeper, snow blade or snow thrower.

Varnishing of Grillo machines consists of a double electrostatic powder coated process. At the first stage are the washing baths and the preparation, then a first protective coat is applied which, after the baking in the oven, turns out to be the best base for the application of the finish. The second coat consisting of powder and further baking in the oven at 190°C convey the characteristic hardness and brilliance.
All Grillo machines have been assembled with the utmost care in every detail and tested scrupulously by specialized personnel. Final inspection includes running the engine with a simulated load! This is a further and final guarantee for a high quality product.
Dumper 507, as with all products by Grillo, has been designed and built to last and retain their value over many years. All Grillo products are distributed and serviced by a widespread Grillo specialized dealer net. Spare parts remain available also after a lot of years.
