Atlas Copco releases new side dump bucket for Scooptram loaders


Side dump bucket

The new side dump bucket for Atlas Copco Scooptram load, haul, dump machines brings added flexibility and productivity to the machines.

Available on the Scooptram ST7, ST1030 and ST14 models, the side dump option increases the versatility and productivity of the loaders. It enables the Scooptram to be used in numerous applications from civil construction to rail and road tunnels, as well as for rapid tunnel development in mining.
The side dump bucket can mean for shorter times between loads, as the Scooptram only has to position itself parallel to a truck to empty. Filling the bucket, reversing, positioning, lifting and dumping can all be done in one motion. Lowering the bucket and boom can be done while moving forward to fill the next load. Not only does this equate to more loads being moved in a day, but tire wear and fuel consumption are also reduced.
In addition to flexibility and efficiency, the side dump enables the Scooptram to serve multiple trucks and eliminates the need for loading bays or cutouts.
