Charmec MC 605 DA


Charmec MC 605 DA is a purpose-built underground ANFO charger, tailored for face and production charging in underground mines and tunnels with up to 65 m2 cross sections and a maximum face height of 8.8 meters. Available with a broad spectrum of useful accessories and voluminous ANFO vessel options ranging from two 360 l vessels to two vessels with a capacity of 720 l, the machine features a FOPS/ROPS cabin and an efficient diesel-hydraulic powertrain with a Tier 3 engine. The MC 605 DA is equipped with dedicated storage solutions for packaged explosives, primers and detonators, eliminating the need for an additional explosive service vehicle.

We have gathered extensive expertise in underground charging from the launch of the first Normet charger in the 1970’s. Ever since, we have continuously developed our charging equipment and solidified our place as the world-leading manufacturer of underground explosives chargers.
