BTI’s Mine Runner keeps mines ahead of the grade
Thornbury, Ontario: Breaker Technology Inc.'s (BTI) MINE RUNNER All Purpose Vehicle powers future-focused mining operations aimed at increased productivity, lower emissions and safety. With Hydraulic Wheel Drive (HWD) motors, the MINE RUNNER is designed and built for a demanding underground environment, providing greater power and extended maintenance and duty cycles, keeping mines ahead of the grade.
“The ever increasing payload requirements and tramming distances have exceeded the capabilities of the typically repurposed highway 4×4-style truck. Unlike many over the road type vehicles being modified for use underground, the Mine Runner is purpose designed and built for the underground environment,” says Andy Jackson, BTI Product Specialist, Mobile Equipment Systems.
The MINE RUNNER is engineered to be a leader in personnel safety and operational flexibility. Standard on the Mine Runner is a rigorously tested and independently certified ROPS/FOPS operator cabin.
Both the primary braking (service brakes) and the secondary braking (emergency brakes) are designed and tested to meet and exceed the regional braking standard and performance for underground mining machines.
Powered by BTI's innovative “Hydraulic Wheel Drive” or “HWD” fluid controlled power train, the Mine Runner is capable of easy customization for optional configurations without hindering the performance or longevity of components.
