Using the technology from within the Royal IHC group, this 120t vehicle will efficiently cut and transfer material from a pit floor using a dredge system to a surface processing plant (also designed and built by Royal IHC).

Part of the Hi-Traq® family, this URM vehicle has four tracks to maintain constant ground contact and tractive performance irrespective of ground conditions.

It is highly manoeuvrable and delivers consistent pressure to the cutting face; losing no traction whilst overcoming traversing slopes and obstacles.
