Raw material extraction in small and medium-sized mining operations

  • The versatile surface miner is used for the selective mining of raw materials with an unconfined compressive strength of up to 50 MPa or for routing work and infrastructure projects.
  • The 7 ft. 3 in. (2.20 m) cutting drum unit – tailored to the job – with a cutting depth of up to 11.8 in (300 mm) guarantees high production rates with minimum tool wear.
  • Trucks with a load capacity of between 20 and 60 tons can be loaded using the powerful liftable and slewable front-loading conveyor.
  • Its compact dimensions and smooth-operating, hydraulic all-track steering allow for optimum manoeuvrability even in tight spaces.
  • The spacious, walk-through operator's stand is heatable, air-conditioned, soundproof and vibration-proof, providing a less tiring and productive machine operation.
