You know you need a mine spec light vehicle, but do you know what make, model, accessories and specifications you need to be compliant for your mine site?
What you do know is mining sites are some of the toughest workplaces in the world and any vehicle to venture on to site needs to be tough, so you are likely looking for a Toyota. In particular a Toyota Landcruiser or Toyota Hilux. Come on, we have all watched Top Gear, the car that wouldn’t give up.
Now, you won’t be attempting to crush your vehicle or drive it down stairs, but you will be driving it on some pretty tough terrain and due to the diversity of mine site conditions each mine has designed its own set of specifications governing the vehicles operating onsite.
Let’s look at your standard Toyota 4WD straight out the factory. Yes, it is great for off-roading and piling everything but the kitchen sink in for camping trips and yes, it appears ok for mine sites but usually that is not the case. Your mine site is an extremely hazardous environment and your company, quite rightly so, will have several safety concerns. Add-ons to your standard Toyota will be mandatory.
We know every mine site is different and has diverse specific requirements, so we put together a comparison table to help you get a better understanding of what accessories your vehicles might need. This is just a guide and you should check with your company’s mine specifications policies for further clarity. If you would like more information on Kuuwa’s mine spec light vehicles for hire or a high res copy of the table, please email us.
