The SLP-3H has been specially designed as a cleaning loader for soft rock mining. The operator’s cabin is placed as far in the front as possible to guarantee a good view on the bucket for efficient cleaning operations. The low profile and compact design of the machine ensures a good view in all directions, even in in low seam heights. The vehicle has a high maneuverability and reversibility for operations in narrow areas at the face. The hydrostatic drive EDS is optimized for the tough conditions in underground mining and guarantees a significant increase in efficiency as well as in productivity in comparison with the conventional hydrodynamic drive. In combination with an intelligent monitoring system a simple operability and maintainability is guaranteed. Its low operating cost result from reduced fuel consumption, very low brake and tire wear as well as a high robustness of the system. The SLP-3H is equipped with a two speed gearbox for a quick transfer between different work locations. The eco-friendly engine meets the highest emission standard EU Stage IV and EPA Tier 4 final, thus reducing the requirement for underground ventilation to a minimum.
