The Three most important factors to consider when buying a mining machine
Jim Moffat, Product Manager – Rigid Haulers at Volvo Construction Equipment looks at the most important factors you need to consider for investing in a mining machine.
“Running a busy mining operation only to have your machine break down in the middle of a job is not an option.
“To make sure you’re meeting your targets to time and to budget, you need to have a winning combination of power, performance and reliability.”
“You don’t need us to tell you how dangerous mining can be. So choosing a machine with the right safety features, like all around visibility and anti-slip steps will put your mind at ease.”
“Hauling doesn’t need to be expensive. You can easily drive down costs by investing in a machine that promises a lower cost of operation, increased fuel efficiency and optimum uptime.”
“Speaking of uptime, if you can achieve faster cycle times with less effort, and less repairs and accidents, meeting your targets will be made easy.
“Finding a machine that is durable, reliable, low maintenance and with professional support is key.
“Make sure you get the most out of your machines, so the only thing you have to focus on is getting the job done.”
