Russian miner & steel maker Metalloinvest’s Lebedinsky GOK has received two Chetra heavy tracked bulldozers to develop the mining and transport complex and improve production efficiency. A distinctive feature of the Chetra T-35 is the modular design of the main components and systems (transmission, running system, cooling system, etc.), which provides affordable and simplified maintenance and repairs.All bulldozers are equipped with a modern fire extinguishing system. The ROPS safety device is a specially reinforced U-shaped frame above the cab that withstands high loads and protects the operator from injury in the event of a rollover of the machine.The large dimensions of the blade of the machine - 4.6 m by 2.5 m - allow you to move up to several tens of cubic meters of loose or hard rock at a time. To facilitate work in cold seasons, bulldozers are equipped with special rippers that break frozen rock.Unlike wheeled vehicles, bulldozers are able to work in hard-to-reach places with difficult terrain. They are indispensable for laying new roads and foundations for railway tracks in a quarry, forming entrances to excavators, ramps between horizons, and creating transfer sites.At present, the automotive and tractor department of Lebedinsky GOK operates 32 bulldozers of various modifications, six of them are pipelayers.
