Atlas Copco Wagner’s MT5010 Truck Now Offered with Cummins Big QSK-19-C650 Engine As Standard Selection


Massive 50-Tonne Truck Powered by 485 kW of Engine Power; Vehicle Receives More than 40 New Upgrades to Performance


(Portland, Oregon USA) Atlas Copco Wagner Inc. has announced that its massive 50-Tonne underground mining truck, the MT5010 is now offered with the Cummins QSK-19-C650 diesel engine as the vehicle’s standard configuration. At the same time, the company has announced that the vehicle has received more than 40 performance-enhancing upgrades to the engine, powertrain, cab, suspension system, structural body, and systems.

The Cummins’ QSK-19-C650 MSHA certified, water-cooled diesel engine, provides an MSHA power rating of 485 kW (650 hp) at 2100 revolutions per minute (rpm). The engine has a displacement of 19 Litres (1,159 cubic inches) and has a 6 cylinders, in-line configuration. The vehicle’s exhaust system includes a catalytic purifier plus exhaust silencer.

Other features of the Cummins’ engine include: High Injection Pressures; Advanced Electronics, Single-Stage Holset HX82 Turbocharger; Articulated steel Pistons; New Ring Pack; Large Diameter Camshaft; Wider Gear Train; High Capacity, Low-Temperature After cooler Housing; Swirl-Port Cylinder Head; and a Two-Stage Oil Filter.

The innovative QSK-19-C650 is designed for maximum utilization, with minimum maintenance. According to Cummins, the articulated pistons are just one example. Not only are they designed to last 30% longer, but also designed to give you 30% longer life after the engine’s first rebuild.
Oil seals have been engineered so they are never exposed to contaminants. According to Cummins, oil stays on the inside, dirt stays on the outside.

In addition to the selection of Cummins as the engine supplier, Atlas Copco Wagner has put the MT5010 through a series of vehicle upgrades. These include: an exhaust wrap with stainless steel foil backing for better fire prevention; increased engine to upbox coupling life; upbox and dropbox cooling with filtration and high temp warning; axle ring and pinion upgrade; front axle cooling option for severe applications is now available; track-rod bushings changed to spherical bearings; dump box design improvements; paint-on grip treads to reduce potential for slipping on oily surfaces; improved handles and steps for access to the MT5010; improved air conditioner performance and reliability; transmission electrical harness improvements; raised axle breathers; and an overspeed audio visual warning system along with a hydraulic retarder that automatically activates to help prevent engine overspeeds.

The Australian market has been the main user of the MT5010. Recently, four units were delivered to Western Metals and one unit Normandy’s Golden Grove operations. The QSK-19-C650 engine in the MT5010 was trial tested in Canada and in South Africa. A number of pending mine projects are looking at the MT5010 as their primary haulage vehicle.

Reports from Australia indicate that the Wagner 50-Tonne capacity truck is producing ore at A$65/ton. One mining company using the Wagner truck reports that it is hauling twice the tonnage this year as last year and that the vehicle is operating at 85% availability or better.

Complete, detailed new specifications of the MT5010 Rear Dump Truck can be obtained from Atlas Copco Wagner Inc. or from the company’s independent dealers and sales companies.
