The LHD LF-10Ex was designed in accordance with the ATEX directive for use in potentially explosive areas. The machine is based on the recently updated but well-proven LF-10. The newly revised vehicle meets the highest standards of ergonomics and maintainability. The machine is characterized by a robust and simple design and thus enables very low operating costs at a very high output.


  • For use in potentially explosive atmospheres (e.g. methane)
  • Complies with ATEX directive Group I Category M2 and GOST standard
  • Compact and powerful design
  • ROPS/ FOPS certified cabin
  • High operator comfort with large box for improved legroom
  • Great power to weight ratio
  • Extremely robust GHH frame and system design resulting in lowest operating cost
  • T-link design ensures high break out force, less wear
  • Efficient combination with MK-A20Ex
