Charmec MC 605 DA(V)


The Charmec MC 605 DA(V) is a purpose-built underground ANFO feeder designed for face and production feeding in underground mines and tunnels with a cross-section of up to 65 m2 and a maximum face height of 8.8 meters. The machine is available with a wide range of useful accessories and voluminous ANFO hoppers, ranging from two 360-liter hoppers to two 720-liter hoppers. It has a FOPS/ROPS cab and an efficient diesel-hydraulic driveline with a Tier 3 engine. The MC 605 DA is equipped with special storage solutions for packaged explosives, detonators and fuses, eliminating the need for an additional explosives service vehicle.

Since the launch of the first Normet charger in the 1970s, we have gained extensive experience in the field of underground charging. Since then, we have continuously developed our chargers and consolidated our position as the world's leading manufacturer of chargers for underground explosives.
