HAULAGE EQUIPMENT

Population Chg. 2010-2015

Mining Trucks
The population of mining trucks (90mt+) continues to grow though deliveries have fallen significantly over the past 3 years. Shipments peaked in Q1 2012 and have declined each quarter since.The 90-110 metric tonne class remains by far the largest size class in total number of units in operation, but the ultra-class trucks has been the fastest growing segment.

LOADING EQUIPMENT

Population Chg. 2010-2015

Electric Shovels
Like all products, shipments of electric shovels have declined since 2012.  Combined with the large number of old shovels being removed from operation and not replaced with new units, the overall population has increased only slightly. Although the total population has grown very little, this product class has performed well for the largest shovels where it doesn’t compete against any other loading equipment.
Hydraulic Excavators
Amongst loading equipment, hydraulic excavators have experienced the most dramatic growth over the past 5 years, mostly between 2010 and 2012. Although there has been some variation in growth among size classes, it has been relatively uniform in percentage terms.The size classes between 20 and 50 mt account for the majority of the units in operation with a small but growing number of units at the high end.
Wheel Loaders
The installed base of wheel loaders has also grown significantly over the past 5 years. Most of the machines in operation and shipped recently range in size from 20-35mt with a small but steady stream of the larger units going out. With the introduction of Letourneau’s L2350, the largest wheel loaders in operation go all the way up to 63mt.
