Atlas Copco’s Scooptram ST7LP low profile loader – previously supplied with a canopy – has now been upgraded with a fully enclosed operator’s cabin.
Operators using 7-tonne loaders in low seam applications can now look forward to the protection of a fully enclosed, FOPS/ROPS approved cabin. This is the latest upgrade on the Atlas Copco Scooptram ST7LP, which was previously supplied with a canopy. The result is a more comfortable working environment with air conditioning, a spacious foot box and a lower noise level.
“The working environment for operators becomes more and more important to our customers”, says Franck Boudreault, Product Manager at Atlas Copco. “This new cabin is a result of a close dialogue with different mining companies.”
Atlas Copco is the only equipment supplier to offer a cabin in the 7-tonne low profile segment.
Scooptram ST7LP is a low profile 6.8 tonne capacity loader for demanding conditions in narrow vein mining. It is 1.4 m high and 8.5 m long and designed for back heights as low as 1.6 m. It has a short power frame and a long wheel base which makes it easy to maneuver.
Apart from the full functionality of the Atlas Copco RCS control system it also has a unique traction control system that minimizes wheel spin when entering the muck pile. This improves penetration, enables one passloading and significantly reduces tire costs.
