The Charmec RM 905 TCA is a self propelled diesel driven twin boom unit for charging, man lifting and installing works in underground excavation and tunnelling. It consists of the new Normet Rigid Frame Carrier (=R) with M-series Cummins Tier4F engine QSB4.5 (119 kW), NBB3 –booms and pneumatically controlled ANFO-charging equipment. Maximum lifting capacity is 500 kg per boom and max lifting height 12 m (measured to the floor of the basket).
Boom controls are in the basket and down on the carrier. Each boom can be operated independently allowing several holes to be charged safely two operators at the same time. Large coverage (16 m width x 11 m height) allows the whole face to be charged from one setup.
