Veekmas FG 5 C has been especially designed for continuous use in arduous underground conditions. This unique low-profile motor grader has been manufactured paying attention to high performance and low operating costs.
The highly strengthened main frame and the chassis together with the wear-resistant components make 8 ton Veekmas FG 5 C ideal for operating in hard rock mining conditions. The technical solutions make it easier to operate effectively in small dimensional and sharply curved mine gallaries.
The driving capacity is exceptional for such a small motor grader as its all-wheel drive system is exceedingly efficient. The frame articulating joint is situated in front of the canopy/cabin which eases turning and reduces outer turning radius. The middle blade can make a circle whose diameter is 145 cm.
The ROPS and FOPS certified canopy/cabin offers safety and increased operating comfort. The instrumentation and the controls are conveniently located and readily visible for ease of operation. These features coupled with the exceptional maneuverability enable the motor grader to be readily operated whilst still maintaining the excellent operator visibility.
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 as standard, for example, front blade and a joystick-steering facility to be used when operating the machine on working gears. Among other things, closed cabin, CD-player/radio, automatic air-condition, brakes for front wheels, fire extinguisher systems, oil purification system for hydraulic system, blade teeth frame, and reversing camera system are available as option.
