The Mini Excavator specifically designed by Gerotto for mining activities, in particular inside confined spaces with minimum dimensions of 1,5 m.
Mini Excavator Mining Gatto, with fully hydraulic transmission, is equipped with a heavy duty arm and cutting head (which can be replaced with a hydraulic hammer or a bucket) essential to crush material into pieces. Once the material has been shattered, the mechanical arm pushes it towards the chute placed in the frontal part of the Mini Excavator, where it is then loaded on the conveyor belt which carries it into a dumper.
The operator drives the robot from a seat placed behind the excavator arm.
Mining Gatto has been designed to reduce as much as possible the dimensions and to allow the operator to leave the machine and exit the tunnel in case of emergency.
Power can be provided by a silenced water cooled diesel engine (24,5 Kw) or by an electric engine connected to an external power supply.
