Underground Loader
Home » Products » Underground Loader

Jiangxi Siton Machinery Manufacturing Co., Ltd., specializing in produce underground loader, our underground loader series include: mucking loader, haggloader and LHD loader scooptram, which are widely used in coal mining, tunneling, military and other industries.

Mucking Loader, haggloader is a kind of underground excavating equipment, it can dig the soil, then transport and unload them to other place. It also can fill and level the original place.

According to the driven model, LHD loader can be classified into underground electric LHD loader and underground diesel LHD loader. Siton offers a range of LHD loader scooptrams to match mineral conditions and maximize productivity. A range of size options and configurations are available to suit your specific needs. Our LHD loader scooptram has the traits of powerful hydraulics, excellent digging and lifting forces, high volume pumps and so on.

The first types of excavating equipment consisted of hands and sharp sticks. Technology moved onward and upward to the shovel and the pickaxe. From the 1800s on, excavating equipment has been mechanized, always becoming bigger, stronger, and more specialized. The excavating equipment of the 21st century is capable of moving vast amounts of earth and completing the largest of projects in record time.

Underground loaders generally feature large wheels or metal treads — like a bulldozer or tank — and a front-end bucket or scoop. The scoop is attached to hydraulic arms, and is used to dig and move tons of material in each load. Loaders have many different names, such as bucket-loader or front-end loader. When a loader is used in an underground mine it is called a mucker.

According to the type of loading bucket movement, loaders can be classified into:

- Front loaders as wheeled loader (front loader with pneumatic lyres), as tracked loader (front loader on tracks).

- Loaders with special bucket types including overhead loaders, side-tipping loaders and slewing bucket loaders.

Wheeled loader:

Wheeled loader have articulated steering, which makes the machines much more manoeuvrable than loaders with rigid frames and steering axles, with the same stability.

The advantages of articulated steering have been summarized in:

- Better longitudinal stability and thus better driving behaviour on bumpy roads, although combined with worse transverse stability.

- Steering is possible while stationary.

- Better agility

- The front and rear wheels run in the same track.

A loader is a type of farm tractor, usually wheeled, sometimes on tracks, that has a front-mounted square wide bucket connected to the end of two booms (arms) to scoop up loose material from the ground, such as dirt, sand or gravel, and move it from one place to another without pushing the material across the ground. A loader is commonly used to move a stockpiled material from ground level and deposit it into an awaiting dump truck or into an open trench excavation.

The loader assembly may be a removable attachment or permanently mounted. Often the bucket can be replaced with other devices or tools—for example, many can mount forks to lift heavy pallets or shipping containers, and a hydraulically opening "clamshell" bucket allows a loader to act as a light dozer or scraper. The bucket can also be augmented with devices like a bale grapple for handling large bales of hay or straw.

Loaders have the big advantage of much better mobility than excavators. For example, tracked excavators have a maximum speed of about 5 6 km/h. while tracked loaders can reach up to 12 kni/li. This means that loaders can be used not only for loading hut also for transporting over short distances, so wheeled or tracked loaders can be described as combined loading and transport machines.

The base machine runs on wheels or tracks, and the properties of these arc similar to excavator undercarriages. Tracked vehicles are more robust and have better stability, while wheeled vehicles have more flexibility and speed.

These advantages make the articulated wheeled loader a powerful and universally usable loading machine, which is often used in larger tunnels. The front bucket requires the performance of loading operations in a V shape, with the machine travelling forwards and backwards to approach the transport vehicle at least nearly at a right angle.

One specification of wheeled loader is the underground loader, which is adapted for working in restricted space. The underground loader, also called a LHD or load haul dumper, has very low construction and is often used m smaller tunnels as a combined loading and transport vehicle.

Generally however the use of wheeled loaders to transport material for longer distances is not very cost-effective due to their small loading volume.

How to Maintenance Underground Loader?

Wherever you operate the new wheel loader, high levels of availability are guaranteed. This is thanks to a number of features that allow quick and easy routine maintenance procedures. Daily checks can be made at ground level, for example, because the engine and radiator cover can be opened fully, providing convenient access. The wheel loaders have been designed to make life easier on the job site, allowing you to work productively and keep downtime to an absolute minimum.

When it comes to commercial grounds-care equipment, the phrase "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" does not apply. In fact, it couldn't be further from the truth. You wouldn't think of driving your car without performing routine maintenance--and if you own a piece of heavy-duty equipment, you know the tough tasks you put it through every day. You also know that these heavy-duty machines can require heavy-duty maintenance if not cared for properly. Whether it's a skid-steer or a front-end loader, regular and proper maintenance will greatly increase the performance, reliability, durability and ultimately the life of your machine.

To make sure that your downtime is kept to a minimum, several maintenance activities apply to all types of equipment, including skid-steer and front-end loaders. You need to check some aspects daily, while you need to check others only on a weekly or monthly basis. The best way to determine what and when to service is to follow the recommended maintenance schedules in your operator's manual for that piece of equipment. Here's a brief description of the major maintenance items to keep a close check on and ways to avoid problems down the road.

A breath of fresh air Everyone needs a breath of fresh air and--believe it or not--so do your skid-steer and front-end loaders. If your machines don't "breathe" properly, they won't operate at full capacity, which in turn reduces your productivity.

To keep either type of machine in top operating condition, it's important to follow the manufacturer's suggested maintenance schedule. Generally speaking, you should replace skid-steer air filters after every 500 hours of use. Replace front-end-loader air filters every 1,000 hours. Of course, if you've been operating your equipment in extremely dusty conditions, you may need to replace the filter more often. Check the hour meter or air-restriction indicators to figure out when it's time for service.

Just as important as when to replace is how to replace an air filter. One of the most common errors made in air-filtration maintenance is that the user takes the filter out, bangs it or taps it on the side of the tire and puts it back inside the machine. Two problems exist with this type of "maintenance."

First, each time you open the system, you run the risk of breaking the seal, which allows dirt and grime to get into the engine. Needless to say, this can cause significant damage to internal components. In addition, you can damage the filter if you take it out and bang it around. You'll never hear anybody recommend banging or tapping a filter to clean it. Thus, if you must clean rather than replace, take the filter out and gently wash it. Only a few manufacturers recommend this, so make sure to read the operator's manual first to determine if your recommends this alternative. To be completely safe, your best bet is to replace the filter each time you service it. Filters are an inexpensive investment that can prolong the life of your machine.

A well-oiled machine never squeaks If you hear your bucket, boom, rake or pallet fork squeaking, you've waited too long to lubricate. Squeaking means that metal parts are rubbing together and that contaminants are getting into places they don't belong. Skid-steer and front-end loaders typically operate in adverse conditions, and you need to fully lubricate them for optimal performance. Because lubricants also act as cleaning agents, keeping your machine well-lubricated is one of the best methods for protecting your machine from the elements. As you push grease into a joint on one side, you push dirt out the other, minimizing abrasions that can wear parts. More often than not, these important joints get caked with mud, and it is easy to overlook them. For the components on your machine that stay buried in the dirt and debris, it's best to lubricate them daily. In addition, always remember to lubricate your skid-steer and front-end loader boom arm-pivot joints every 50 hours or about once a week. If ever in doubt, just remember that grease is cheaper than parts. It's better to over-lubricate than not lubricate at all.

A small leak will sink a ship Low or empty fluid levels can halt a tractor. Unless you're in the habit of making daily walk-around, leaks are easy to overlook. As with all other maintenance schedules, you need to check different fluids at different times. For skid-steers and front-end loaders, check the engine oil and engine coolant daily. One undetected leak in a hose can put you out of commission for days. Because different machines have different needs, manufacturers work diligently to develop an oil for each specific machine. Therefore, it's highly advisable that you use the manufacturer's recommended oil rather than a "will-fit" oil.

To avoid serious damage and costly repairs down the road, make sure that the drive-train case and gear-case fluids are always at the proper level. To run out of fuel is one thing, but to let these essential fluids fall to a perilous level can be disastrous to you and your machine. To be on the safe side, check skid-steer drive-train cases and gear cases every 100 hours. Check front-end loaders every 10 hours.

Spinning wheels can get you nowhere fast Depending on the machine you have and its application, tire life can vary greatly. Each product has tires designed specifically for the application, and it's important that you know the difference. Skid-steers are designed to have versatility, speed and maneuverability. As their name implies, they skid--which also means they will consume tires faster than front-end loaders. When you buy the machine, talk to your dealer about how you plan to use the equipment so that you can be sure that the tire is appropriate for the application.

No matter what brand of tires you use, correct tire pressure is essential. Checking the pressure regularly will ensure a longer tire life and reduce downtime. Tire pressure should always match manufacturer recommendations. Rotate your tires on a regular basis. Even if you check your tire pressure and rotate regularly, it's always a good idea to have a spare on hand. You wouldn't think of driving around in a car without a spare, and the same should be said for your skid-steer or front-end loader.

When in doubt, get professional help While regular maintenance is imperative, it is still important to have an overall inspection done by your dealer at least once a year. Between these yearly inspections, keep a service log on any maintenance performed. Not only will this help you remember what parts you need to service and when, but it also could help a service technician diagnose a more serious problem. While a highly trained operator can handle everything from a daily walk-around inspection to minor adjustments and oil changes, it's best to carry your service log and equipment to the dealership for more advanced service.

Checking fluid levels and tire pressure, monitoring hours of use and performing a quick walk-around inspection before every use takes less than a few minutes each day. But these few minutes spent taking care of the details can mean better performance and fewer repairs over the life of your skid-steer or front-end loader.

How to Choose a Underground Loader?

A underground loader is a kind of multifunctional and highly efficient construction machinery, and it is used to load, deliver and unload soil, sand, gravel, coal and many other materials. It can be divided into three types including large-sized type, medium-sized type as well as small-sized type, and it is widely applied in mines, ports, warehouses, factories, stations, infrastructure construction sites, road maintenance projects and other places.

In order to gain a handsome economic profit and reduce the investment risk, every user should take different factors into consideration rather than price only when choosing loaders. You need to choose a loader according to your actual applications, and the loader should meet your requirements and provide optimized economic benefit. The following paragraphs illustrate how to choose a loader in two aspects, workload and working condition.

1. Determine the rated load according to actual workload

The loaders have various rated loads, and you should select the perfect one for your job to maximize your economic benefit. This selection is based on your actual workload, and the rated load should be neither too large nor too small. If the rated load is too large, it is a waste of money and oil. If it is too small, it can't finish the job in a desired way. The detailed selection guide is as follows.

For road construction sites and large coal mines, they are characterized by big workload, long work cycle as well as spacious work environment, and the load capacities of transportation machines are usually over 10 tons. Under this condition, loaders with rated load of 3-5T are the ideal models to improve working efficiency and cut down construction cost.

For some places where the workload is relatively smaller, including soil and river sand collection sites, loaders with rated loads of 3T or 4T are preferred.

When it comes to the worksite with extremely small workloads, such as some small quarries, the transportation vehicles are small-sized tractors for most cases. So, loaders with rated loads of 1.5T or below can fully satisfy production requirements, helping you gain remarkable economic profits.

2. Select corresponding travel speed on the basis of work condition

You should choose a proper loader according to different working conditions, because different materials show distinctive properties.

The solid natural soil, rigid ore and other heavy materials ask for big traction, so the applicable loader should possess relatively lower travel speed, higher breakout force and traction to ensure the normal working.

On the other hand, loose materials such as soft soil and coke, require less on the traction. So, you can select a loader with faster travel speed to improve working efficiency.
