The new 810B Battery Hauler has just been released and was designed for higher payloads in a low-seam application. DBT said maximized output is made possible through a larger hopper and new tubular low-seam design providing for continuous loading of up to 18 tons of coal during a shift.
To increase flexibility for operators, the Un-A-Hauler operates off a low-profile 1200-amp battery and the LA 2000 contactor-less panel coupled with 35-horsepower Reliance dual-field motors. The control system also includes a microprocessor-based logic card and a variety of independent safety systems. This provides operators with an increased level of protection and a longer shift life, allowing miners to work deeper in the mine.
“The battery-powered machine was introduced to the market years ago, but now DBT has introduced a new generation of machines that allow for a greater tonnage capacity to be loaded per work cycle in low-seam mining,” said Mike Kilgore, account manager, DBT America.
The Un-A-Hauler’s construction includes a tubular structural design in the hopper frame and a heavy-duty ball bearing center section to withstand the stresses of larger loads. The Un-A-Hauler is operated by an ergonomically designed control stick allowing several functions, including steering, drive, brakes, lights and pumps, to be easily controlled by the operator.
