Ausroad® Stemming Trucks allow blast holes to be back-filled or “stemmed” quickly and efficiently. The machines have revolutionised the stemming process within open cut mines, resulting in improved safety and significant savings in materials, time and labour. AUSROAD Stemming Trucks™ have the largest payload capacity in Australia. Our industry leading design means faster hole filling with one truck easily able to deliver 26-tonnes of stemming within 15 minutes. The process is fully controlled from the driver's seat via a joystick, enhancing safety. Proportional hydraulic control allows accurate control and placement of stemming material, which reduces wastage and maximises efficiency.

More than twice the speed: Ausroad offers a better stemming solution
Challenge: A large mining and resources company was seeking to improve efficiency and safety by reducing manual handling during their stemming process. Their system involved much room for error. The previously used front-end loaders required multiple trips back and forth to stem holes. With explosives already loaded in holes awaiting stemming, and denotation cords extending from the collar of those holes, the excessive vehicle movements were increasing the risk of dangerous and expensive misfires. They needed a better way to get the job done.
