The countdown to the official arrival of Australia’s newest supplier of high quality dump trucks is almost over. February will see the launch of Belarusian Autoworks dump trucks into the Australian and New Zealand markets to cater for the demand for high quality mining dump vehicles. Australasian Pacific Engineering Group (APEG) has been appointed the exclusive Australian BELAZ distributor, offering equipment with significant operational capabilities, energy efficiency and minimal environmental impact.
APEG has arranged full customer support, including a spare parts service, for the BELAZ dump trucks. This includes a network of sales, after sales staff and a repairs and maintenance agreement with Sharps Heavy Equipment (fully certified services agents). These ensure an effective and safe earthmoving alternative. The introduction of the BELAZ- 75603 mining dump truck at this year’s MINExpo in Las Vegas created significant interest from potential customers searching for quality, reliability, technical specifications and ease of operation. The BELAZ-75603 flagship model has a payload of 400 tons (362 tonnes), while combining high quality with the latest technology. Its default 4-2 wheel arrangement, short frame and AC transmission, provides smoothness, manoeuvrability, good traction and a speed of 64kp/h. A Cummins QSK78-C engine with electronic control system and centralised coolant system offers gross power of 3500hp (2610kW) and provides high rated power, stable acceleration and fuel efficiency.
The sturdy construction of the truck’s transmission, suspension and steering ensures high performance and stability while slashing operating costs APEG will be launching the BELAZ mining dump trucks at an exhibition on 22 February 2013 at Rutherford, New South Wales. The flagship BELAZ-75603 and the BELAZ-75315 with a payload of 264 tons (240 tonnes) will both be on display. Visit www.apeg.net.au for more details on attending this major event.
