Stemming Trucks

Our AUSROAD stemming trucks, manufactured under licence in South Africa, offer the ability to complete a bench of 200-300 holes in one shift with a single operator, and a pre-set amount of stemming aggregate in each hole. A slew conveyor for stemming holes close to the edge of the bench, is optional.  The entire process is fully controlled from the driver’s seat, via an intuitive operator interface and in-cab joystick, enhancing operator safety. Proportional hydraulic control capabilities enable precise stemming material control and placement, delivering up to 1,000kg/min stemming rate, and up to 16m3 of stemming aggregate per load.  

In effect, AUSROAD has successfully ‘industrialised’ the stemming process by making it less manual.

AUSROAD stemming trucks ensure there are fewer unpredicted vehicle movements onsite, ensuring reduced dust and heat exposure for ground staff. Productivity is increased due to faster, more efficient and economical stemming, with reduced material wastage and optimised efficiency.

Our equipment ensures that there is no double-handling in the stemming process.

An OEM approved body builder, these units are suitable for 8x8, 6x8 and 8x4 on-highway chassis cabs.

AUSROAD has revolutionised the stemming process within open cut mines, with much of their machine R&D having been done in collaboration with major mining and resource companies.  Their stemming solutions range in size from 1.5m³ remote control Contour Loaders to 16.5m³ heavy stemming trucks.  Contour Loaders can be remotely controlled at a distance, whilst maintaining their accuracy.
