The LT-270 hard rock loader is a diesel-powered heavy-duty machine intended for the most demanding mine environments. The LT-270 is perfect for small narrow-vein applications where maneuvering space is limited. The LT-270, like all Joy loaders, is designed specifically for ease of use and maintenance, with simple operation gauges and a rugged long-life structure, providing the lowest possible total costs of operation including low capital costs.

Designed for safe operation and maintenance

The LT-270 includes multiple features that are designed to maximize safety for both the operator and the maintenance staff:

  • ROPS/FOPS canopies and cabins provide protection from falling rock or rollovers
  • Fail-safe braking system features a spring-applied braking system that activates when low hydraulic oil pressure or electrical failures are detected
  • Operation interlocks prevent accidental machine activation
  • Three-point mounting and anti-slip steps minimize slips and falls
  • Hot component isolation to prevent burns

Designed for reliability

The LT-270 has been designed for reliability and long component life, including the following features:

  • Rugged steel frame
  • MIL (military specification) components that meet international standards
  • Heavy-duty all-mechanical powertrain featuring Dana components for a rugged platform and long service life
  • Hydraulic systems with piston pumps
  • Severe-duty electrical system
  • Collet-style pins for lower wear and reduced maintenance

Designed for ease of maintenance

The LT-270 includes several key features that reduce maintenance times and costs, including:

  • Ground-level maintenance design to eliminate climbing
  • Centralized lubrication system
  • Simple electrical design

Designed for productivity

The LT-270 has been designed to provide the highest possible productivity in its class:

  • Combines power and efficiency to provide fast tramming speeds and cycle times, with impressive breakout power
  • Easy-to-use controls are simple to train and simple to operate
  • Rugged structures and heavy-duty components increase equipment uptime

Designed for customization

The LT-210 has many upgrades available, including:

  • FOPS/ROPS certified canopy
  • Automatic lubrication system
  • Ejector bucket
  • Electric transfer pump (hydraulic tank)
  • Fire suppression system
  • Quick-attach coupling system
  • Radio remote control
  • Spare rim

Forks and an optional quick-attach coupler (which allows the bucket to be quickly replaced with forks) are available for utility applications. The buckets can be equipped with a variety of wear packages, depending on the application.
