The KSW-1500EU1 is a longwall shearer with electric drive. This machine is characterised by high efficiency, reliability, ease of use and operation.

The shearer loader designed for working with all types of conveyors of 860 to 1100 mm wide and with the Eicotrack (125 or 126 mm) Megatrack® (147 mm) or Gigatrack (151 mm) haulage systems.

The shearer has been designed in the Industry 4.0 standard, therefore it is provided with the functions of advanced diagnostics of parameters  and full monitoring of the machine operation on a mine surface. The KSW-1500EU1 can be provided in the along with additional equipment. The shearer is adapted to work in underground mines of class “a”, “b”, “c” methane explosion hazard and class “A” and “B” coal dust explosion hazard.
