GE's Battery Powered Load Haul Dump

  • alt

    GE’s Battery Powered Load Haul Dump (LHD) Vehicle is beneficial to mine operators and the environment. By using the latest technology in battery powered equipment instead of diesel fuel, the LHD lowers cost of ownership while minimizing an operator’s carbon footprint.

    This vehicle is suited to the harshest environments in hard- and soft-rock mines across the globe. Improved mobility, better working conditions and higher productivity are some of the many advantages the LHD offers.

    By switching to GE’s Fairchild Battery Powered LHD, mine personnel can see the immediate impact of their operating costs going down.
