Track-mounted Belt Loader Handles 30-ton Haulers


Samson Materials Handling, a business unit of the Aumund Group, said its new BF40415T loader is a tracked version of its wheel-mounted Stormajor loader that offers high performance, reliability and maneuverability. It delivers a cost-effective solution for stockpiling, barge loading, ship loading and railcar loading, handling material densities of up to 1.6 t/m3 and at a capacity of up to 625 m3/h, and is particularly suited for use at unimproved sites or where loader mobility is crucial. Key features include a folding 15-m boom, which allows it to be deployed and operational within minutes of being delivered to site. It also offers higher efficiency with fewer moves and a maximum stockpile value of 3,130 m3, and is easily operated through its remote control umbilical or optional radio control module. The track-mounted BF0415T has been designed for use with ADTs up to 30-ton capacity, trucks hauling 30-ton trailers and wheel loaders with bucket capacity up to 8 m3. The BF0415T can also be supplied with an interchangeable 20-m boom.
