Increased Utilization During Bad Weather













Superb performance on slippery roads

Superb Truck Stability

ETF is setting new standards in mining haulage. Stability issues with conventional Large Haul Trucks such as body swaying and frame cracking are now issues of the past. Haul road maintenance is not as critical as it is essential operating conventional truck fleets. Undulation on haul roads and loading impacts are absorbed by the advanced hydro-pneumatic suspension/oscillating axle combination engineered into ETF Mining Trucks and Haul Trains. Operator comfort and safety considerations are now the best in the industry.
