Getman explosives chargers are versatile explosives charging vehicles designed to work in development drifting, production charging, up-hole charging applications and more.  They can be configured for ANFO charging, emulsion charging, or both.

Getman’s A64 ExC 2-1300 is designed to perform explosives charging functions with a single operator, and the enhanced 10 m wide by 7.5 m high (34 ft by 25 ft) face coverage area reduces cycle times by ensuring that each section can be charged without having to reposition the machine.  An available onboard air compressor allows for fully contained operation, while the optional mine air package allows all charging operations to be performed using mine air for reduced emissions.

A64 explosives chargers protect miner safety through purpose-built design, including counterbalance valves on the lifting arm to prevent uncontrolled decent, fall arrest tie-off points in the man basket, engine stop and fire suppression actuation controls in the man basket, and hydraulic stabilizers with internal pilot check valves to ensure stability.
