The MacLean Advantage:

MacLean battery powered Mine-Mate™ Series EV EC3 delivers a safe, reliable, and cost-effective solution for quality emulsion loading in underground trackless mines.



  • Best-in-class battery technology – energy density and cycle life
  • Regenerative braking down-ramp provides up to 35% energy recuperation, and acts as a retarder to reduce excessive wear on service brakes
  • High energy density and cycle life (4,000-14,000 charges @ 80% DOD)
  • Complete drift coverage from single setup
  • Cost benefits in material handling and in use of bulk explosives
  • Improvement in primary blast efficiency controls fragmentation and maintains stope integrity; reduction in secondary breaking requirements
  • Productivity improvements, especially in up-hole loading
  • Reduced environmental impact from spillage and contamination
  • Reduction in overall mining costs through drill pattern expansion, improved breakage, reduced manpower requirements and increased LHD productivity


  • Master Disconnect switch with lockout feature
  • On-board charging design adaptable to underground voltages from 380V to 1,000V
  • Ample separate storage capacity for caps and blasting supplies
  • Stainless steel pumping components
  • PLC with “touch screen” controls
  • Heavy duty frame construction
  • Removable cassette options available
  • Deck options for third-party emulsion loading systems.
  • Four-wheel drive carrier
