MR20 – MR40 Equipment Retriever

The MR20 – MR40 is a safe, fast and economical way to recover equipment trapped by roof falls. With a drawbar pull of 150 tonnes, the Equipment Retriever offers three important advantages:

  1. Trapped equipment can be recovered quickly, significantly reducing out-of-production time.
  2. A minimum crew is required to operate the retriever.
  3. Maximum safety is assured because personnel need not be positioned between the MR20 – MR40 and the trapped equipment.
