The SLP-8 is a worldwide proven super low profile LHD with a height of down to 1.55 m and has a capacity of 8 tons. The plain-tech vehicle design guarantees very low cost per ton with high performance, even under tough working conditions. With a high tractive effort and good traction a fast loading of the bucket is guaranteed, even in sections with high gradients. Its good maneuverability, ground clearance and optimized machine profile ensure a fast material transport under extreme track conditions.


  • Super low vehicle height of 1 550 mm
  • Extremely robust GHH frame and system design resulting in lowest operating cost
  • Customized buckets optimized for hard and soft rock mines available
  • Ground clearance for rough environments
  • Options such as payload weighing system or bucket shaker
  • Proven technology only
