Damascus Corporation: TO THE RESCUE

Damascus Corporation is proud to be a part of the safety and rescue initiative being implemented in mines around the country by providing compact, maneuverable, and economical rescue vehicles. One example is our LMJ4 Lil’MAC Rescue Car.

The LMJ4 Lil’MAC can accommodate three miners; the driver, an attendant, and one stretcher bound passenger. The rear deck area is configured to accommodate the attendant performing CPR while the vehicle is under way. With the addition of an electronic battery charger the Lil’MAC can be parked near the section and automatically maintained at complete charge on the ready.

Tram power is provided by a 6 HP separately excited electric motor that is controlled by a 500 amp SEVCON Powerpac controller using 225 amp/hour or 245 amp/hour batteries. This system incorporates regenerative braking and has been proven dependable over years of mine use.

Ride is softened by the use of a heavy duty seven point rubber mounted front suspension with coil over shocks. The rear uses leaf springs with shocks and a 1600 pound capacity Dana axle with Timken tapered roller bearings at the wheels.

LMJ4 Lil’MAC’s are expertly constructed using rigid structural tubing, and diamond plate steel. Before assembly the frames receive a very durable baked on powder coat finish for long life.

Damascus engineers can design a rescue vehicle to suit your needs using our line of Lil’MAC’s, MACXP permissible cars, MAC-8AC battery powered personnel carriers, or our MAC-3, 8, or 10D diesel powered vehicles.
