UTILITY VEHICLE: Vallée offers smallest mining lift truck that hoists over 4.5 tonnes

SAINT-ALBAN, Que. – Vallée, the manufacturer and designer of lift trucks and handling equipment, is pleased to announce the release of its latest Compact Series model, the 4DA10D lift truck. Specifically engineered for underground mining operations, it can handle heavier loads than any other deep mining vehicle in its size category.

The 4DA10D fits in the cage and can handle over 4.5 tonnes.

Compact enough to slip in and out of a shaft cage, articulated so it can snake and weave its way around confined spaces, equipped with four-wheel drive to handle rough uneven terrain, and yet surprisingly capable of handling ultra-heavy loads of 4,535 kg for a lift truck its size, the 4DA10D represents the evolution of mobile underground mining equipment. The 4DA10D’s overall length and width are 3.66 metres and 1.72 metres, respectively, and its exterior tuning radius is 3.86 metres.

The 4DA10D’s advanced electric circuit and zero-energy hydraulic system help reduce diesel consumption, which means lower emissions. The lift truck is also equipped with low noise technology that diminishes transmitted vibrations and radiated sound. Finally, the cab is sealed to help maintain a clean, comfortable operating environment.

Like all Vallée lift trucks featuring the company’s trademark commitment to premium quality parts and robust construction so they can work long hours in rough conditions, operating flexibility, comfort and safety are front and centre as well. Functions rarely seen on the market, such as levelling, enable the operator to shift the fork carriage side to side by 5° to facilitate loading and unloading operations on uneven surfaces. Side shifting allows the operator to move the fork carriage farther left or right an extra 500 mm in either direction, making it possible to deposit a load without having to re- maneuver the entire lift truck into position.

The full-view cab houses ergonomic controls and a colour display monitor to help the operator maneuver comfortably and safely. Operator all-around visibility is measurably increased by the absence of channels in rear corners to eliminate blind spots.
