Last month, two Volvo FMX 10x6 pushers with single mounted tyres were delivered at the Gala-Mibrag project in Profen, East Germany. The trucks will be used for transport of several raw materials on very heavy duty terrain.
Gala Mibrag was the first company to test the Volvo FMX 10x6 widespread pusher with single mounted tyres on the driven axles. The new BAS Mining vehicle stood out in terrain skills, stability, payload and speed. This resulted in a 50% higher productivity and 25% less fuel consumption than its competitors. For this reason, the test vehicle was taken into operation and two new ones were ordered.
At Gala Mibrag, the Volvo FMX 10x6 widespread pushers are used for the transport of several raw materials over a distance of 700 – 1500 meters one-way. Road conditions are heavy: 20-50% dragline mats and 50-80% peatland. For safety reasons, a pusher body is placed on the truck, which decreases the risk of tipping over during unloading to a minimum. Service is carried out by BAS Mining Trucks in collaboration with the local Volvo trucks dealer.
