Load-Haul-Dumper (LHD) LF-21H

The latest development of GHH Fahrzeuge GmbH, Gelsenkirchen/Germany, is the Load Haul Dumper (LHD) LF-21H with a payload of 21 t. It is the most powerful and efficient machine in the largest LHD class.

The LF-21H is equipped with the newest generation of the worldwide proven hydrostatic drivetrain Efficient Drive System (EDS). The EDS is optimized for the rough conditions of underground mining and achieves both significant efficiency as well as productivity gains compared to conventional hydrodynamic drivetrains. In combination with an intelligent monitoring system it guarantees simple operability as well as maintainability. Reduced fuel consumption, low brake and tire wear as well as high robustness of the system minimize the operating cost. The eco-friendly engine complies with the latest standards EU Stage IV and EPA Tier 4 final and thus minimizes the underground ventilation requirement. The focus is on ergonomics with a large foot box, two-pedal control with an inch-function and controls adjustable for all operator sizes.

The LF-21H is available in different cabin variants for a highly efficient mining in low seam applications of min. 2,5 m. A Z-link for hard rock applications is designed for high breakout forces and loading of matching dump trucks. A low profile version of this Z-link and the lowest machine height of its class provide superior visibility even in confined spaces. A great variety of optional assistance systems such as collision avoidance systems and the automatic loading mode grant a high safety standard and simple operation.
