At Hard-Line Solutions, we take pride that we are the mining industry’s leader in Radio Remote products and service. The Muckmaster LHD Radio Remote Control System is designed and produced to achieve superior performance while being exposed to the harsh conditions of underground environments. Bi-directional controls allow not only the control of the machine, but a responsive touch that gives the operator the ultimate level of security and safety.

Intrinsic safety features in the Muckmaster design and real time response for the operator.

Only the interface changes according to machine. The Muckmaster radio will fit on all makes of LHD’s manufactured in the world and can be modified and installed to suit the needs of any mine.

The system was designed specifically for harsh environments and for mobile equipment. Vibration, shock, heat, wide voltage ranges, and other issues with the mobile industry are to be expected. A properly designed system makes these non-issues.

Reliable and durable, Muckmaster has a proven track record. Cost effective replacement parts, coupled with the ability to do “on site” repairs, keeps lost production due to faulty radios, at a minimum.

Protects the system from short-circuits, over-current, and voltage spikes without the use of fuses or circuit breakers in addition to providing programmable valve control. Each output is capable of driving 2.2 Amp resistive or inductive loads.

These radios were originally designed for military use because of their excellent reliability, immunity to noise and reduction of multi-path dropout. 900 MHz spread-spectrum radios are an ideal choice for industrial applications.

Used to operate steering, throttle, boom and bucket functions, proportional control offers high performance in the tightest headings. The cost savings in reduced machine damage from running into walls will more than justify choosing the Muckmaster LHD Radio Remote Control System.
