AN IMPROVED electrical system, an EPA Tier 3 diesel engine and a new instrument panel represent the major improvements being incorporated in Atlas Copco’s new front end loader; the Scooptram ST1030.
This new model, replacing the ST1020, is the latest member of the ST10X0 progression.
A large number of design changes have been made to keep this 10 metric tonnes capacity loader at top production levels in medium to large sized underground operations.
The most important improvement, from a service point of view, is the electrical system. It has been redesigned, with focus on reliability and serviceability.
Another service friendly change is the new display panel, which replaces the previous gauge cluster arrangement.
The new instrument panel features an integrated warning system and an engine fault code display.
The system also indicates when it is time to change the air filters.
Among all the improvements, the change of engine is the most noticeable.
