Epiroc reported the Minetruck MT65 has been updated to meet Tier 4 and Stage 5 emissions requirements and is CANMET and MSHA certified. NOx and diesel particulates have been lowered by 45% and 80%, respectively, over the Tier 2 model.
The updates include the new Ejector dump box option for compact envelop applications. The modular design is a pin-on solution that attaches to the load frame, the company reported.
A load-weighing display is optional and helps the operator determine if the truck is fully loaded. The data can be used by the company’s telematics system, Certiq.
Combined, the updates should help miners improve safety, sustainability and production efficiency, Epiroc reported.
