First time for the MK-A20 underground mining truck in Türkiye

Marubeni Dağıtım ve Servis A.Ş., the Turkish representative of GHH, the German manufacturer of machines for mining and tunnelling, will be exhibiting the GHH MK-A20 dump truck for the first time in Türkiye at the Maden Türkiye 2024 trade fair from May 2-5 in Tüyap. Komatsu will also be represented on the stand at A-105A.

Compact, powerful and extremely robust, the GHH MK-A20 is an articulated dump truck for underground mining, which was developed with a high power-to-weight ratio for cost-optimised use in hard rock. With a length of 9,417 mm, a width of 2,200 mm and a height of 2,555 mm fully loaded, the dumper can also cope in narrow underground mines. In addition to the standard tipping volume of 10 cubic metres, tipping volumes of between 6 and 12.5 cubic metres are also available. With an empty weight of 19 t and a load capacity of 20 t, a total loaded weight of 39 tonnes is achieved.

The MK-A20 is equipped with a Cummins QSB6.7 engine with a power rating of 209 kW at 2,300 rpm. The drive train is completed by a powershift transmission with 4 forward and 4 reverse gears. With its smart system design, the manufacturer aims to achieve the lowest possible operating costs. Therefore, only tried-and-tested technologies have been utilised to ensure trouble-free operation. The ROPS/FOPS-certified cab offers excellent visibility in both directions of travel. It is also ergonomically designed and offers a high level of safety for its driver.

Marubeni has been GHH’s sales and service partner in Türkiye as of 2024. GHH has made a name for itself with the manufacture of LHDs and dumper trucks specially designed for underground mining. Its machines offer advantages in soft and hard rock mining thanks to their robustness, cost efficiency, ease of maintenance and driver ergonomics. Marubeni from its side adds real value for customers with its experienced sales and service teams at locations across the country.

Türkiye, besides its geopolitical importance, is already a major player in the global raw materials market. It has numerous mineral resources, including copper and iron ore, coal and chrome, as well as the world’s largest boron deposits. The fact that GHH will soon be part of the Komatsu Group is a further advantage for customers in Türkiye and beyond.
