High Capacity Cable-Powered Shuttle Cars

More Tons Per Trip = More Profit

The High Capacity Cable-Powered Shuttle Cars are designed and built to the highest OEM standards. As one of our first OEM products, the HC Series car was designed to reduce cost at the mine.

With an improved chassis design; now known as the High Capacity Chassis; we have incorporated the use of the high strength and high wearing steels to reduce weight and prolong chassis life. The weight reduction gain in the chassis design allows for larger payloads of up to 12% more.
