Replacing tires on large an heavy UG truck can be challenging and dangerous as it require specific tools that are often difficult to use on underground mining environment.
To make tires replacements safer, quicker and easier, Sandvik has developed the Integrated Jacking System.
The system consist on four hydraulic cylinders mounted to the front and rear frames. These hydraulic cylinders are intended to jack-up the truck for replacement of the tire. Each cylinder is controlled separately with a remote control which is connected to the outside of the cabin with a cable.
The Sandvik Integrated Jacking System is able to jack-up the truck in any place (with level and firm ground) and circumstance, even in confined spaces or if the truck is fully loaded.
Service stands are a separate option that is strongly recommended to use in combination with Integrated jacking System.
