Getman mechanical scalers are a key component of maintaining safe and productive working environments in underground operations, performing the necessary task of scaling safely and effectively through a purpose-built design philosophy. Mechanical scaling is the safest way to bring down loose material from back and rib surfaces.
Getman’s S320 mechanical scaler has an optimal roof scaling coverage range of 3 m to 7 m (9.8 ft to 23 ft), and an optimal rib scaling coverage range from 1.5 m to 7 m (5 ft to 23 ft). The single extension boom allows an advance over 4 m (13.1 ft) from a single setup, while Getman’s scaling brake package allows for easy boom movements throughout the scaling process.
S300 scalers drive safety through purpose-built design, including an operator compartment removed from the scaling area at the far rear of the machine and a stable chassis that does not require stabilizers, making emergency maneuvers a single step operation. The optimized line of sight to the scaling area improves visibility and operational effectiveness, while the cabin is rubber-mounted onto the chassis to reduce vibration transfer to the operator.
