At Metalloinvest’s Mikhailovsky mining and processing plant, the Shantui SD52-5 bulldozer started to work. This is the most powerful equipment in the manufacturer's lineup and the heaviest tracked vehicle in the plant's autotractor control: its weight is almost 70 tons, engine power is 612 horsepower, and the blade height is more than 2 meters. The new bulldozer is involved in the acceptance of rock mass at transfer points and in the construction of roads in the quarry. In tandem with high-performance dump trucks and excavators, which regularly replenish the plant's fleet as part of Metalloinvest's investment program for the development of a mining transport complex, the heavyweight will significantly increase the efficiency of mining operations.
The bulldozer meets all European and Russian standards, provides a high level of safety and comfort. The cabin is sealed, with circular glazing and protection against ingress of rocks. Equipped with climate control and soundproofing. The driver's seat is anti-vibration, it is regulated by a number of parameters.
The equipment control is fully automated: electrical systems make gears, turns, lifting and lowering the blade. High ground clearance, stable chassis system, long grip length give a heavy machine the ability to easily adapt to different geological conditions. The modular design of the bulldozer will allow you to quickly perform, if necessary, disassembly, repair and maintenance.
