Maximum performance in large-scale opencast mining
The surface miner with the highest production rates when it comes to the selective mining of hard or soft rock.
The 4.20 m cutting drum unit – tailored precisely to the specified application – with a cutting depth of 830 mm in soft rock guarantees high production rates at minimum tool wear.
Trucks with a load capacity of between 120 and 220 tons can be loaded using the powerful liftable and slewable rear-loading conveyor.
With an annual mining capacity in soft rock of up to 12 million tons, the miner is ideal for large-scale opencast mining.
The fully glazed operator's cabin offers heating and air-conditioning, soundproofing and anti-vibration mounting to ensure non-tiring, productive machine operation.
