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.
The roadheader does require a greater investment than an excavator with a roadheader attachment. The excavator’s performance, however, is limited because it is dependent on the hydraulic power capabilities of the excavator. Attachments are extremely flexible in large tunnels for scaling, cutting manholes, corners and excessive grouting.
