Overview

Our goal for the redesign of the R1700 was simple; add value, power and performance with safety at its core. With each cycle, the R1700 hauls 20 percent more payload, it loads, climbs, hauls and dumps quicker. It features three engine emission options that can be tailored to your mine’s ventilation requirements. The R1700 is a powerful new tool for mining.
