Correctly maintained haul roads are extremely important in an underground mine. Veekmas FG 15 C has been especially designed for efficient operation in restricted and demanding underground environments. This unique low-profile motor grader is of highest quality and economical at the same time.
The main frame and the chassis of Veekmas FG 15 C are highly strengthened. Its sturdy, reinforced structure is many times stronger than that of conventional motor graders, making 16 ton Veekmas FG 15 C well able to withstand the toughest mining conditions. The technical solutions make it easier to operate effectively in small dimensional and sharply curved mine galleries.
The joints are especially strong because they comprise of straight pins and bushings. There are no ball joints on Veekmas FG 15 C. The frame articulating joint is situated under the fore of the cabin, which eases turning and reduces outer turning radius. The drawbar circle is wholly screened so that impurities do not damage the drawbar circle.
Low oil pressure and advanced hydraulic system with an automatic hydraulically operated blade shock suspension installation give the motor grader increased ability to absorb impact damage normally associated with hard mining circumstances. It means that the middle blade moves up to 10 cm upwards without jumping the motor grader itself when driven over materials too hard to grade down at the desired level, for example, rocks that protrude over the road level. When needed, the system can be switched off.
The motor grader has so called reversed transmission system which means that the transmission is situated transversally at the back of the motor grader. It brings many benefits, for example, exceptional low cabin noise level, easier maintenance, improved weight distribution, and more efficient cooling. The location of the transmission and the design of the engine bonnet allow an excellent operator visibility backwards for safe reversing.
The tiltable ROPS and FOPS certified cabin offers safety and increased operating comfort. The cabin includes as standard, for example, adjustable and air cushioned operator seat as well as openable side windows on both sides. The instrumentation and the controls are conveniently located and readily visible for ease of operation. There is a joystick-steering facility to be used when operating the machine on working gears. These features coupled with the exceptional maneuverability enable the motor grader to be readily operated whilst still maintaining its excellent operator visibility.
