A bulldozer weighing almost 70 tons will increase the efficiency of mining operations at Mikhailovsky GOK

Press Releases

At the Mikhailovsky mining and processing plant named after A.V. Varicheva (part of the Metalloinvest company), the Shantui SD52-5 bulldozer started to work. This is the most powerful equipment in the manufacturer's lineup and the heaviest tracked vehicle in the plant's autotractor control: its weight is almost 70 tons, engine power is 612 horsepower, and the blade height is more than 2 meters.

“The new bulldozer has a higher performance than the machines already in service,” explained Gennady Potapov, head of convoy # 3 of the MGOK autotractor department. “Due to its power and dimensions, it shifts the rock mass, which was shipped by the 240-ton BELAZ, in 3-4 cycles, while lighter vehicles need to do 5-6 approaches for this”.

The new bulldozer is involved in the acceptance of rock mass at transfer points and in the construction of roads in the quarry. In tandem with high-performance dump trucks and excavators, which regularly replenish the plant's fleet as part of Metalloinvest's investment program for the development of a mining transport complex, the heavyweight will significantly increase the efficiency of mining operations.

The bulldozer meets all European and Russian standards, provides a high level of safety and comfort. The cabin is sealed, with circular glazing and protection against ingress of rocks. Equipped with climate control and soundproofing. The driver's seat is anti-vibration, it is regulated by a number of parameters.

Machine control is fully automated: electrical systems make gear shifting, turning, lifting and lowering the blade. High ground clearance, stable chassis system, long grip length give a heavy machine the ability to easily adapt to different geological conditions. The modular design of the bulldozer will allow you to quickly carry out, if necessary, disassembly, repair and maintenance.
