ÖREBRO, SWEDEN — The most recent addition to Atlas Copco’s Minetruck series is designed to ramp up productivity, the company announced Nov. 30.

The rugged Minetruck MT54, engineered for smart and efficient haulage, is a powerhouse just like the larger Minetruck MT65. The more compact Minetruck MT54 is designed for 54 tons of load capacity and higher ramp speeds than its predecessor Minetruck MT5020.

“Minetruck MT54 is based on the very successful Minetruck MT65, so experience and reliability are built-in from the beginning,” said Marcus Lundbergh, global product manager of haul trucks at Atlas Copco.

Minetruck MT54 also features Atlas Copco’s proprietary Rig Control System. It is ready for automation and can be equipped with Certiq for added intelligence. The optional telematics system solution gathers and compiles data to help optimize operations and plan maintenance.

“With its built-in smartness, this haulage truck is prepared for the future,” Lundbergh said.
