The machine is designed to excavate material and to load it onto trucks or
carriages when ordinary front-loaders cannot be used for reasons of space and when the
hardness of the material is less than 100 daN/cm².
It is extremely practical and convenient for digging the bottom sections of circular or
oval tunnels, and can be used for digging these when the material is sufficiently friable.
In normal working conditions the machine is able to load up to 200 m³/h of material.
