Tesmec Rock Hawg for Surface Mining Applications
Published: Monday, 24 October 2016 15:58
Tesmec surface miners are suitable to excavate even strong and unfractured rock, cutting vertical walls and square corners while producing low amounts of dust. Tesmec surface mining machines can be equipped with laser for grade control and/or GPS for auto steering and grade control. The high production capacity of the Tesmec Rock Hawg reduces the need of multiple units to a single unit working in the area, guaranteeing an easy job site to manage. The shock and vibration from the Rock Hawg excavation process is negligible, and therefore the danger zone to surrounding structures becomes a non-issue, according to the company. The special drum attachment with carbide diggings tools accompanied with the high engine power allows for a very efficient hourly output per each unit.
