Putzmeister has designed, developed, and produced a new scissor lift platform. The MINELIFT 4 has a lifting height of 4 m and 4 t capacity. The equipment provides a mobile and secure working platform for load and personnel lifting in underground mining and can also be set up for all kinds of installations, like piping and ventilation.MINELIFT 4 is available in a configuration set-up for the installation of water, air, drainage, and tailing pipes in underground mining. It incorporates a drop-wing platform extension that expands the wide lateral by 700 mm, providing a work surface total of 3,400 x 2,550 mm. The high load capacity crane allows pipes to be lifted in an easy and safe way. For mounting, MINELIFT 4 uses pipe handling system with two independent telescopic arms, designed for pipes from 100 – 200 mm and with load capacities of 300 kg each. The scissor lift is also available with an auxiliary lift platform that provides a load capacity of 2,500 kg and lifts up to 1,100 mm from the main platform for ventilation installation.MINELIFT 4 features compact design with heavy-duty axles and 4 steering and driving wheels (4×4), as well as a powerful 6-cylinder 130 kW. The Integrated Continuously Variable Drive (ICVD) without gear shift allows you to leverage the maximum engine power at any time without breaks in traction, making operation easier for the driver. The combination of the hydrostatic drive system, slope measurement, and Putzmeister control software form the core of the automatic downhill speed control system. The equipment automatically adapts its maximum speed to the slope, taking full advantage of the engine retention capacity, thereby reducing the probability of operational errors. Service brakes on both axles are multi disc in oil bath, hydraulically operated with two independent circuits.MINELIFT 4 features a FOPS/ROPS certified driving cabin, designed according to ergonomic standards to reduce operator fatigue and increase productivity. The equipment has LED work lights both on the platform and on the vehicle, providing operators with a safe environment inside the mine. Thanks to the reverse camera with night vision, the operator can manoeuvre in reverse with confidence and accuracy. At the request of the customer, the equipment is available with an enclosed cab which can include air conditioning and heating.
