1. Transport Crawlers

Transport Crawlers

Transport crawlers are designed for transport and relocation of heavy and big units of mining and processing plant equipment.

Transport crawlers are heavy-duty mining machines developed for transport and relocation of heavy and big units of mining and processing plant equipment like head or tail stations of belt conveyors, segments of conveyor structure, semi-mobile crushing plants, apron or belt feeders, surge bins and counterweights.

TAKRAF started to build transport crawlers in the beginning of the 1990’s – a fact that guarantees highest performance, safety and convenient maintenance today. Our transport crawlers are especially engineered for client’s purposes. The geometry, payload, travelling performance and optional equipment on board can be chosen by the client.

Our product range includes machines with a payload from 200 t to 1,200 t. Our crawlers may be equipped with or without an operator’s cabin. Special equipment and devices for safety, condition monitoring and convenience like a remote control, fire-fighting equipment, TAKRAF PLC, sensors of many kinds, GPS or design acc. to client/country-specific standards are buyer-selected.

Our transport crawlers are fully assembled and tested in factory resulting in quick on-site commissioning.

    Project name
    Transport crawler RT 500
    VALE S.A.
    Carajás iron ore mine

    Special design for crawler in the Carajás iron ore mine

    The transport crawler was designed for a payload of 500 tons with an eccentricity of the load of 500 millimeters. One special feature of the project was the low geometry caused by an extremely narrow access opening required by the client. So the challenge was to design a very compact machine. In compliance with local and client-specific safety standards, an automatic fire-detection system was installed.
