Roadheader

self-propelled rock drumcutter

Antraquip is the leading manufacturer of Roadheaders. Our roadheaders are advanced, self-propelled and extremely powerful rock cutting machines. We offer roadheaders in the weight class of 13 – 80 tons operating weight and they are designed to excavate roadways, tunnels and chambers continuously without using explosives. These electro-hydraulic powered machines emit no fumes and offer interchangeable cutter heads both transverse and inline. Our cutter heads are customized to each project including coal mining, mineral mining and underground construction projects. Their ability to excavate the desired profile without causing harmful vibrations is highly valuable for both environmental and safety reasons.

Antraquip roadheaders are typically used for tunneling (road, railroad, water, sewer) or in the mining industry. For the excavation of shafts, Antraquip suggests its roadheader based shaft sinking equipment provided the UCS of the material to be excavated does not exceed 8,000 psi. Our roadheaders have a variety of interchangeable cutting drums designed for transverse and axial applications. View our Roadheader Gallery of applications here.
