The latest in the line of MacLean Engineering 5 Series, the safe and versatile ML5 Multi-Lift, is available for underground mines around the globe. The first unit – a battery electric model – is ready to ship to an Australian customer. It will go into service in the second quarter.
The newest addition to the MacLean utility vehicle (UTV) product line was initially designed as a safe and purpose-built alternative to the use of integrated tool carriers in underground operations across Australia. It will be put into service for mine services installation and repair work from a certified elevated work platform with a 6.5 metre working height and a 4.5 tonne payload.
The ML5’s safety and versatility dividends are embedded in the unit’s OEM design from the ground up. The slew boom range of motion delivers best-in-class coverage, along with in-basket operator controls and remote drive.
The boom’s hydraulic and mechanical linkages are doubled-up for safety. And a quick hitch design allows for easy switch-out between multiple baskets, as well as the use of forks or a jib boom for material handling and general underground construction.The launch of the ML5 complements MacLean’s suite of elevated work platforms – the SL2 and SL3 scissor lifts and the LR3 boom lift – for high reach and heavy load mine service applications. All are available in various sizes and configurations depending on the customer’s haulage ramp and drift sizes, the size and weight of the infrastructure being installed or repaired, and the working height.
