The all-rounder for mining soft and hard rock
The powerful surface miner is used for the selective mining of raw materials with an unconfined compressive strength of up to 80 MPa and for routing operations
The 2.50 m cutting drum unit – tailored precisely to the specified application – with a cutting depth of 650 mm guarantees high production rates at minimum tool wear.
Trucks with a load capacity of between 40 and 120 tons can be loaded using the powerful liftable and slewable rear-loading conveyor.
Individually height-adjustable and steerable crawler units enable optimum manoeuvrability.
The fully glazed operator's cabin offers heating and air-conditioning, soundproofing and anti-vibration mounting to ensure non-tiring, productive machine operation.
