The SLP-6 is proven in the extreme conditions of South African platinum and chrome mines, is a and has a capacity of 5,75 t. It is specially designed for super low profile reef mining of up to 1.75 m. The SLP-6 is characterized by a robust and simple design and thus enables very low operating costs at a very high productivity. Even under toughest working conditions the machine has proven lowest cost per ton. With its increased tractive effort and its excellent traction a quick loading is guaranteed, even when loading up dip at high gradients. The operator’s cab is arranged on the load frame and thus allows for a clear view on the bucket for efficient loading. Due to its high maneuverability, ground clearance, and optimized machine profile a fast haulage is guaranteed in extreme ground conditions.


  • Super low vehicle height of 1 600 mm
  • Top of the class loading performance
  • ROPS / FOPS certified canopy
  • Extremely robust GHH frame and system design resulting in lowest operating cost
  • T-link design ensures high break out force, less wear resulting in > 20% higher lifetime compared to competition
  • Customized buckets optimized for hard and soft rock mines available
  • Load sensing hydraulics for lower oil temperatures and higher energy efficiency
  • Options such as payload weighing system or bucket shaker
