The MT520 tunneling roadheader is a new concept of a construction roadheader in the 100 tons class, based on easy exchangeable modules, selectable to adapt the MT 520 basic machine to a vast variety of applications.

An 8 meter cutting height module makes this machine highly suitable for large road tunnels.

For maximum cutting performance in soft ground, the cutter head can be exchanged easily. The full cutter motor power of 315 kW is available both on the transverse and on the inline type cutter head. An integrated dust extraction system caters for a healthy work environment of the tunneling team
