RME offers two distinct families of rubber-tyred Feed Chute Transporters (FCT), the RUSSELL Classic Feed Chute Transporter and the RUSSELL Multi-Wheel Feed Chute Transporter.
RUSSELL Rubber-Tyred FCTs are vehicles which are independent of any mill feed chute. The three major benefits of this solution are:
- The ability of one FCT to service multiple mills (diesel power recommended)
- The ability to be stored away from the feed chute during mill operation, saving the FCT from damage caused by feed chute leaks
- The ability to negotiate floor obstacles such as spillage and embedded rail tracks
RUSSELL Rubber-Tyred FCTs can be powered hydraulically from the RUSSELL Mill Relining Machine, electrically from plant supply or, most conveniently, via on-board diesel power for independent travel.
