Elphinstone Pty Ltd is an authorised Caterpillar OEM and a leading manufacturer of quality products for the global underground and surface mining industries. The product range includes specialised underground support vehicles and surface mining solutions including extended distance off-highway haulage trucks and water tanks to suit Caterpillar articulated trucks.
Elphinstone’s dedicated sales, marketing and product support personnel travel the world helping Caterpillar dealers support their customers by conducting site visits, facilitating meetings, training sessions, and providing specialised technical product support. All products come with a 12-month Elphinstone factory backed, unlimited hour warranty.
The Elphinstone® range of underground support vehicles includes agitators, delivery trucks, service trucks, water cannons, water tanks, motor graders and other specialised support equipment. There are two base platforms, the 20-tonne WR820 series and the 10-tonne WR810 Series. Both platforms have proven Cat® powertrains featuring Caterpillar's proprietary ACERT technology and control module. The chassis design and component commonality provide the highest level of reliability, durability, and superior parts availability worldwide through the Caterpillar dealer network.
The Haulmax® 3900 series truck is purpose-built for extended distance, off-highway, surface mining applications and is available in many configurations including dump truck, service truck water cart or tow tractor for a 160-tonne capacity lowboy trailer. Designed to operate on cycles of approximately 50km, the narrow width of the 3900 allows it to work on roads 15 metres wide. Increased tyre and brake capacity plus a load management system enable the truck to travel at higher speeds over longer distances.
The Elphinstone W35® Water Tank module, designed to fit Caterpillar 740C, 745C and 745 articulated truck chassis, is utilised for dust suppression in the construction and mining industry. The tank has a capacity of 35,000 Litres with five fully adjustable and individually controlled spray heads, a water cannon, and many other features.
Elphinstone, based in Tasmania Australia, continues to support, and rely upon the specialised design, engineering, and manufacturing knowledge of the skilled local workforce. This highly capable and advanced manufacturing supply chain has evolved over a 45-year association with the global mining industry. The company continues to develop a high-volume of new products, delivering over 240 machines worldwide to locations in Australasia, the Americas, Africa and Eurasia.
