FS 400

FS 400 is a new generation shearer loader designed for operation with all types of conveyors with a width of 850 to 1200 mm and the Eicotrack (125 or 126 mm) Megatrac® (147 mm) or Gigatrack (151 mm) feed systems. The design of the feed system allows for different shearer heights without changing hauling frames. The shearer is compatible with the universal crusher and can be installed on its left or right side.

It is fitted with the extended version of the control system FAMAC OPTI 5000 with full diagnostics and integrated radio remote control, which according to the standard e-mine allows full monitoring of the machine operation from the mine surface.

FS 400 can be delivered in the standard e-complex, with additional equipment to work in an automatic cycle.


Model 3D

  • modular design allowing different cutting heights and adjusting the machine for different types of the feed system
  • very high clearance under the shearer
  • limiting the maximum transport dimension up to 3 m
  • each haulage motor supplied from its own frequency converter
  • power electronic converter system that provides energy being returned to the system
  • continuous monitoring and display of main shearer operating parameters on radio remote controls and local control panels
  • maintenance service of electrical equipment components only from the shearer operating side
  • two independent hydraulic systems with functional distribution in left and right sides
  • system for automatic lubrication of key nodes of the shearer loader
