Variomec MF 050 M concrete mixer is part of the Normet’s M-series Variomec-system. The modular Variomec concept uses an articulated carrier and interchangeable work modules: a remixer kit for concrete transport, a dump kit for rock hauling and a boom lift kit for man lifting. Any combination can be converted to another in a couple of hours because the kits are fitted to the carrier using standardized connections.
Variomec MF 050 M features a remixer kit with concrete carrying capacity of 4.4 m3 as standard. It is designed for concrete transportation in underground mines and tunnels where tramming height is 2.6 m or more. The concrete discharge height of the drum is 1.46 m. The other kits, the 6 m3 dump kit and the 9 m lift kit can be delivered as additional equipment.
The powerful liquid cooled turbo charged Deutz 120 kW or MB 110 kW TIER 3 classified engine provides clean and efficient operation. Maximum speed in a horizontal tunnel is 25 km/h. The fully reversible 4 WD with high traction capability ensures safe and sure movement in difficult ground conditions. Efficient hydraulic dual-circuit oil immersed multi-disc brakes provide safe driving and braking.
Vehicle has optional front axle suspension system that improves driving safety and comfort and reduces fatique. The suspension system reduces vibration from wheels to the cabin and improves handling of the vehicle. The suspension system gives efficiency and speed to vehicle usage, with safety and comfort for the driver and the passenger.
The new Normet FOPS and ROPS approved safety cabin provides superior visibility and comfortable compartment for the driver and the passenger. Cabin is designed for safe and easy entry and exit. Door openings are wide and handrails and non-slip steps are correctly positioned. Dashboard is easy and simple to use. New multifunctional display (MID) provides driving information (speed, RPM, temperatures etc.) and information can be recorded for analysis. Enclosed cabin provides noise level < 75 dB ensuring safe and comfort driving. Vehicle layout allows easy access to all service points, all daily checks can be done from the ground level.
