The miniDumper T500 is specifically designed for use at narrow vein operations. Based on the power frame and components of the L150D, Aramine said the T500D miniDumper will help customers to streamline their parts inventory and rationalise their fleets.

The T500D, which can carry up to 2.1m3 of material, features a four-wheel drive system, as well as a heavy-duty articulated frame and oscillating axle to cope with tough road conditions and short turning radii.

The dumpbox, with an extra 1,500mm capacity, has a safety raised locking device and can be equipped with or without a wide-opening automatic rear tailgate.

The operator cabin offers a comfortable seat with adjustable suspension, a safety door and a ROPS/FOPS certified canopy with back protection. Plus, the operator is side seated for better visibility in both directions.

Aramine has also added two new 15t mine trucks to its range: the T1601C and T1601M.

Developed for small- to medium-scale underground operations, both trucks are suitable for sections from 12-18m2, and can even fit 3x3m galleries.

Both trucks have been designed with strong welded boxes with angled corner for better protection, a smooth interior for easy material unloading and a rear duck-tail design to avoid material spilling during tramming.

Customers can choose to add an optional rear mechanical tailgate to increase truck capacity and avoid material spillage on grade and/or a telescopic dump box for unloading in low back heights or back filling applications.

As their names denote, the T1601M is the mechanical version of the T1601, and the T1601C is the computerised version.

The T1601M is equipped with a Deutz air-cooled engine. The operator is side seated for better visibility in both directions, and the driver can easily operate the machine with the mechanical gearshift and electric pilot control.

On the other hand, the T1601C features a canbus system and is equipped with a Cummins tier 3 CE CMSHA Engine. The operator, forward seated, can operate the machine with an automatic gearshift and converter lock-up activation in an open cabin, or can choose an optional fully enclosed pressurised cabin with sound suppression, air cooling, heater, wind shield washer and wipers.

For both trucks, Aramine offers an optional 17t X-tram Cap which includes larger wheels.
