Superior Overland Conveyor

Download Brochure

While haul trucks can bring flexibility to transport applications, the short and long-term economic implications are causing operators to seek alternatives. In many cases, the Superior Overland Conveyor (sometimes called “groundline”) is the most cost-effective method of transporting bulk material to processing plants or loading facilities.

Key Features:

  • Conveyors operate at maximum efficiency
  • Maintain product quality
  • Conveyors maintain continuous flow of materials
  • Less affected by weather
