Dräger Mine Rescue Vehicles combine Paus’s rugged, mine-duty chassis with Dräger’s expertise in refuge & rescue operations, breathing protection and gas monitoring to give customers an innovative, high quality, industry-specific vehicle for mine rescue.

The expertly designed chassis allows safe transport closer to the incident, while the airtight driver’s cabin and cassette keep mine rescue teams safe from harmful external gasses. This combination means rescue teams have more time on-site as breathing apparatuses need not be activated until exiting the vehicle.

  • Hydrostatic all-wheel drive
  • Fully independent coil spring suspension
  • Shock absorbers
  • Oscillating axles
  • Enclosed, air-tight cab
  • LED lighting

Dräger's gas monitoring system reliably measures the concentration of oxygen, carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide inside of the vehicle and has the option to monitor concentrations in the ambient air as well.  Visual and audio signals warn occupants if air thresholds are exceeded or fall short.  The internal air purging system in both the cabin and the cassette are independent from the ambient air and an additional volume of 9.5 ftof on-board breathing air is available.

Additional features:
  • seating for 8 and a stretcher for transporting injured miner, lying flat
  • seat design permits breathing apparatuses to be worn when seated
  • rooftop escape hatch
  • trailer hitch
Available options:
  • communication between driver's cabin and cassette
  • thermal cameras to aid visibility in smokey/dusty conditions & in the detection of trapped miners 
  • air conditioning (front and/or rear)
  • fire suppression system
  • additional cabin stabilizers
