The SLP-8H is based on the worldwide proven GHH "Super Low Profile" – vehicle concept with a cabin height of only 1.50 m and is optimized for conditions in low profile room and pillar mining. The hydrostatic drive EDS, designed especially for the tough conditions in underground mining, guarantees significant increases in both efficiency and performance compared to the traditional hydrodynamic drives. In conjunction with an intelligent monitoring system a simple operability and a high maintainability are achieved. Reduced fuel consumption, very low brake and tire wear as well as high robustness of the system reduce operating cost to a minimum. With a high tractive effort and optimized tractive effort a fast loading of the bucket is guaranteed.
