Also reviewed in the July IM issue, Peru’s Overprime Manufacturing SAC, as part of the products it has been manufacturing since 2016, offers two narrow loaders for narrow-vein mining operations; the XLH05D of 0.5 m3/ 0.75 yd3 and the XLH12D of 1.20 m3/1.50 yd3 of load capacity. Both at the level of their structures and their components, the LHDs are designed to withstand the demanding work of narrow vein operations, as well as demanding temperatures. The main components (engine, pumps, valves, electrical systems) are recognised brands for work in underground mining operations. They are 100% hydrostatic driven and their engineering design allows easy access for periodic filter change, lubrication, pressure regulation, as well as maintenance of the main components.The configuration of the equipment used in the design (engine power/pressures/hydraulic flow) allows for a high torque performance, load capacity and therefore productivity in different work environments such as in high altitude above sea level and steep gradients.Overprime and GHH Fahrzeuge have agreed to form a strategic alliance, promoting the sale of their machines in the areas of influence of each of the companies in the world. This alliance will allow technical and commercial synergies, shared knowledge of markets, and new technical adaptations of the machines based on the requirements of each market, enabling comparative advantages of after sales support, efficiency and productivity.
