Designing a vehicle from the ground up focused on mining

The Mine Runner is a totally re-imagined support platform engineered from the ground up to be a leader in personnel safety and operational flexibility.

What if a vehicle was built from the ground up with the purpose of being driven underground?

Breaker Technology’s MINE RUNNER All Purpose Vehicle is a modern day solution for a future focused mining operation, aimed at safety, lower emissions, and increased productivity. Not to be confused with a customized road vehicle or generic people carrier, the Mine Runner has Hydraulic Wheel Drive (HWD) motors, providing greater power, and extended maintenance and duty cycles.

Engineered from the ground up 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. “The ever increasing payload requirements and tramming distances have exceeded the capabilities of the typical re purposed 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,” say Andy Jackson, BTI Engineering Project Leader, Mobile Equipment Systems.

Both the primary braking (service brakes) and the secondary braking (emergency brakes) have been designed and tested to meet and exceed the CSA Braking Standard and Performance for Underground Mining Machines. CAN/CSA – M424.3-M90.
