To improve on its 20-tonne Minetruck MT2010, Epiroc released its new Minetruck MT2200 underground haul truck, with an additional two tonnes of capacity. “It maintains its speed and ramp, and it has a bit more horsepower in the engine. So it’s a productivity increase for the customer,” said Epiroc product manager Erik Gert. The MT2200 comes with several on-board safety features, such as an operator compartment with three points of entry, hydraulic brakes and a rear-view camera. Epiroc says the MT2200 also shares the same “sleek dimensions” as its predecessor, making it easier to navigate tight mine tunnels.
