Sandvik launches underground trucks


Sandvik Mining has launched two new underground trucks for the mining market. The company stated that the new TH550 and TH540 are the first in the underground mining world to offer energy-efficient and low-emission EPA Tier 4i/EURO Stage IIIB engines.

The new TH550 and TH540 are based on older models, Sandvik T50 and T40. The all-new TH trucks were born as a result of comprehensive research, customer feedback and modern thinking. One of the main advantages of these trucks is the optional Tier 4i/IIIB engine that consumes less fuel, produces fewer emissions and has better torque characteristics for trucks than its predecessors. Currently, the TH550 and TH540 are the only trucks in the market available with these engines.

Tomi Pikala, marketing support manager at Sandvik Mining, said: “If these engines were left running, for example, in the centre of some large city, the exhaust fumes coming out of the engines would be cleaner than the air they took in from the city. These trucks can thus provide a healthier environment for all personnel working underground.”
