August, 5th 2020: ten years ago, with an increasing demand, Aramine decided to design with its inner engineering department two different 15 tons mine trucks.
After a conscious development, the French company manufactured 2 mine models called T1601C and T1601M, from 15 to 17.5 tons capacity.
Developed for small to medium scale underground operations – with their 2 meters width – both T1601 perfectly match sections between 12 to 18m2 and even fit with 3 x 3m galleries. Operator’s compartments are totally different for each version: canopy or rubber mounted cabin – while they are both designed to offer the best comfort and ergonomic for the driver.
These 2 trucks have been designed with special dump box, engineered with a strong welded structure, angled corners for better protection, smooth interior for easy ore unloading and a rear duck tail to avoid material spilling during tramming.
Aramine offers one Mechanical version – called T1601”M” – equipped with a F8L-413FW V8 Deutz Air cooled engine, and another electronic version – T1601”C”, designed with a full CANbus system and equipped with a Cummins Tier3 CE CMSHA engine (even available with a tier4final/Phase5 version) .
The 2 trucks have been operating all around the world for the past 9 years with improvements suggested by our customers.
Now, Deutz has just announced they’ll stop manufacturing the « Air-Cooled » engine during 2021, thus preventing Aramine from manufacturing the T1601M version.
As many customers love this easy-to-maintain fully mechanical version of Aramine 15 tons mine truck, Aramine decided to launch one last production of this air-cooled version.
Orders have to be confirmed by Aramine before end of 2020 and customers will be served within 8 weeks for express purchase order this month or early 2021 if order comes on September or later this year.
Aramine T1601M mine truck is a very reliable, easy and smart engineered machine, designed with no electronic to make maintenance easier.
The operator is side seated for better visibility in both directions. Driver can easily operate the machine with mechanical gearshift and electric pilot control.
Aramine also offers an optional 17.5 tons, X-tram Cap which include larger wheels 16,00×25 & width 2150 mm.
Customer can choose to add an optional mechanical tailgate on dump box to increase capacity and avoid material spillage on grade and/or an optional telescopic dump box for low back height unloading or back filling application.
Now it’s time to place your order!
After this date, only the T1601C version will be available with tier3 or tier4final Cummins engine and different type of Dump boxes or cabins.
