Fairchild International, a manufacturer of underground mining equipment, offers the Model 35C-WHPDT Workhorse permissible diesel tractor, the latest addition to the company’s line of permissible and non-permissible diesel-powered underground scoops. The tractor features a fifth-wheel hitch that can be located as specified by the customer and is part of a system for transporting materials, supplies and equipment to underground mines through the toughest conditions faster and more efficiently than other equipment. The unit also can be converted to a utility scoop by removing the fifth wheel assembly and replacing it with other attachments, including a 140-ft3-capacity scoop bucket, maintenance center and forks. The 35C-WHPDT is fitted with John Deere 1400 series inboard planetary axles, internal wet disc service brakes and a hydraulically controlled differential lock. The vehicle’s power unit consists of a Cummins C8.3, 150-hp engine with a DST dry scrubber package to provide exhaust treatment, and a Dana/
Clark powershift transmission assembly with four speeds forward and reverse.
