With the 2020 upgrade of its long-proven MK-A35 model, GHH, German manufacturer of heavy machinery for mining, tunneling, and special civil engineering, presents the first 35-ton class dump truck, already operating in the field, with ultra-clean diesel drive complying to Stage V emission norms. The engine is a Mercedes OM 470 with 320 kW output and diesel particulate filter. The diesel complies with the strictest current Stage V emissions standard. This puts operators at the forefront in terms of lowest emissions and keeps project costs under control. As an option, the engine is also available with Tier 3 and 300 kW.

With a payload of up to 35 tons and a loading capacity of up to 23 m3, the MK-A35 can carry as much as its two predecessors combined. The vehicle is currently the largest of its kind in the range of the Gelsenkirchen-based company, which is one of the world’s leading suppliers. It was designed for medium to large operating environments, in particular for hard rock mass mining and tunnel applications. For this reason, the frame, swivel joint, transmission and systems are designed to be extremely robust. Maintenance is simple which contributes to maximum reliability and lowest operating costs.

Another key feature is working efficiency with spacious cabins, thoughtful operation, and high safety in all GHH machines. In the upgraded MK-A35 dump truck, the ROPS/FOPS certified cab has a bi-directional design with separate controls for forward and reverse driving. To get out of a tunnel, the driver simply turns his seat and accelerates. No time-consuming turning in confined spaces, no confusing reversing, and no physical strain. The low particle emissions close the loop and make the MK-A35 a driver’s favourite.

All of these features make the MK-A35 dump truck a unique concept, offering superior comfort, flexibility and productivity. Because the other values are also at the highest level, the renewed MK-A35 is without doubt one of the reference models on the world market.
