Product Description

The Hydex Block Handler has been specifically designed to transport mining blocks around the site easily and safely. Suitable for 30 to 45 ton AT’s of any manufacturer. Our block handler solution enables operators to carry single or multiple blocks with a maximum payload of 28, 32, 36.3 and 41 tonnes, thus maximising productivity.  

By integrating into the main hoist circuit, operating the main hoist lever in the cab causes the two central block supports to open and close simultaneously through the use of four hydraulic cylinders which ensure easy steady movement. These cylinders are located safely within the machine frame to help prevent damage from blocks. The system enables operators to carry single or multiple smaller blocks yet still maintain optimum support when a single larger block is carried.  

Both sets of supports move in unison to ensure that the centre of the load is correctly positioned over the centre and rear axles. A fixed frame option is also available for sites where block size is more consistent. 


Optional payload monitoring enables the operator to view very accurately how the truck is loaded to prevent overload and potential machine damage. With the use of the weight measurement system, it is very simple to use the machine to carry multiple, similarly sized blocks without overloading the machine.  

Each support beam is fitted with two three-metre-long wooden beams which help to prevent movement of the block in transport yet are easily replaceable as required.  

Central frame guarding helps to protect the truck drivetrain and park brake from excessive dirt ingress and falling debris.  

By using the standard rear tipping pins and fast removal of the front mounting points, the frame can be tipped easily in a workshop to perform general machine maintenance without the need to remove the complete frame or disconnect the hydraulic system.  

Lashing points are available around the support beams, while two storage compartments are provided on the headboard.  

Hydex’s optional HyTrack TPMS system monitors the unit’s tyre temperatures and pressures in real time helping to increase site safety, reduce fuel spend and increase tyre life through effective tyre maintenance. This system is available for installation on all mining trucks.  

As with all Hydex machines the BH range meets the requirements for CE marking where applicable, and of course is sold, fully serviced and supported by your local machinery dealer.
