Emissions are minimized by the wet-exhaust system package with particulate filtration, inline purification and a catalytic converter, controlled by the Bucyrus Diesel Control System (DCS).

The FBL-55 (H) is designed for maximum safety, with features including exhaust-emission filtration, falling object protection (FOPS), and maximized visibility. With space at a premium in roadways, the FBL-55(H) is compact, with its low profile and roadway presence allowing greater maneuverability. A removable cookie plate and fixed forks allow this high-capacity shield hauler to be used in underground roof support installation and for transportation of heavy equipment.

The Bucyrus feature of horizontally mounted radiators and fans allows clean air to be drawn in at the top of the machine eliminating fan blade damage and increasing operational flexibility as the direction of mine ventilation has no adverse effect on its performance. This layout also gives the operator good visibility. www.bucyrus.com
