Broons manufactures two Mining Specification versions that have several special features focused on the delivery of cost savings at mine sites. The BH-1300 MS has a module 1.3m wide weighing just over 8t.
There is also the BH-1950 MS, featuring a 1.95m wide module weighing in at 12 tonne. The MS models have extra wear plates added for increased durability. Also, the standard tyres are replaced with lugged mining tyres. Speeds and productivity are the same, although the application on mine waste tips and haul roads generally require fewer passes and therefore are much more productive, especially with the 1.95m wide BH-1950 MS unit.

Used extensively to ‘rubbilise’ sharp oversize rock on tip heads, pit floors and haul roads. Maintaining the structural integrity of these transport routes is crucial to uninterrupted productivity and the safety of all mine workers. With smooth even roads, significant savings can be made on truck maintenance, fuel costs and most importantly – tyre wear and damage. Before and after rolling images clearly show the difference.
Premature tyre failure costs are enormous in mining. The tightening of road infrastructure can pay large dividends to tyre costs, transport times and down time that occurs at failure. Nothing has come close to the Broons BH-1300 MS and BH-1950MS in minimising these issues.
