Geared for uptime

Small wins big

The key to mining profitability is all about controlling capital and operating costs. It pays to take a look at our solutions. Many times the lower total operating costs of our vehicles outweigh the benefits of conventional, over dimensioned mine haulage equipment.

Efficient service and maintenance is the key to uptime. With the service-friendly design of Scania trucks and spare parts readily available, turn-around time can be kept to a minimum. That’s how we get the trucks back into action as fast as possible. An effective way to cut costs.

Safety is essential

At Scania, safety is top priority. Our trucks are rigorously tested to meet the toughest safety standards in the world. All the way from the cab which is built around a rigid steel cage, to the active safety systems, Scania mining trucks are designed to ensure a high level of safety from every perspective.
