TML’s steelworks crawler loaders are designed to work in extreme conditions inside iron and steel foundry hot zones. The machines, known by their brand name of Leonard, are designed to speedily clear hot slag from below the furnace for example. They are resistant to the prevailing extreme heat and the harsh ambient conditions. The shovel is built to cope with very hot materials and is of a particularly robust design.
Compared with crawler-mounted loaders used in less challenging conditions, all the mechanical components, the hydraulics and the entire control system are designed for operation in hot environments. The machines are extremely agile and are therefore ideal for use in tight spaces, for example underneath electric furnaces. The remote control option provides maximum safety for the machine operator. We supply the machine with or without an operator’s cab, as required.
