Epiroc releases high-capacity Minetruck MT2200

Epiroc's MT2200

Epiroc is rolling out the Minetruck MT2200, which has been developed to boost underground haulage capacity and efficiency of global mining operations.

The Minetruck MT2200 shares the same dimensions of its popular Minetruck MT2010 predecessor, according to Epiroc, but can capably transport even heavier loads of up to 22 metric tonnes.

“The Minetruck MT2200 is based on our very successful Minetruck MT2010, so safety and reliability are built in from the beginning,” Epiroc global product manager Erik Gert said.

Besides innovative safety essentials and a compact design that is ideal for manoeuvring through tight spaces, the Minetruck MT2200 incorporates other winning characteristic from its forerunner, including easy access to service points and ergonomic seating and controls for optimal operator comfort.

The Minetruck MT2200 can also reach fast incline speeds to ramp up an operation’s productivity.

Epiroc offers a full portfolio of mining equipment including both diesel-driven and battery-powered drill rigs, loaders, ground support machinery and underground vehicles.

“We work closely with our customers. We talk to miners on site to ascertain what they really need and want in a truck,” Gert said.

“That’s why you can trust Epiroc for a mine truck you can depend on. Our hands-on experience makes all the difference.”
