Features and benefits

Gather material quickly

Your operators can clear work areas quickly, or temporarily house face material fast with the 14BU27 loader’s high output dual 38-in.-wide centrifugal loading arms. Gathering arm styles are also available.

Help improve employee work conditions

Help keep noise to a minimum for your operators with the SmartConveyor package. It includes a patented dual-sprocket conveyor chain, quiet tail, and a hydraulic tensioning system, plus a pump/tank, bumper and controller case isolators.

Excellent operator visibility

Help your operators work better with optional on-board cameras that deliver outstanding visibility. Images display on a monitor inside the cab from cameras trained on the gathering head and the trailing cable during tramming.

Add bolting rig flexibility

Waiting for roof bolting can slow down your operation. Add capacity with the 14BU27 loader’s optional full bolting rig. It includes automated temporary roof support system, full bolter canopy and a Joy HGX 210 drill with 500-600 rpm rotation.

Help keep costs low with AC drive

Don’t worry about the noise, exhaust and wear of a diesel drive with the 14BU27. It features an OptiDrive AC system — brushless AC traction motors coupled to a compact, all-gear transmission — designed to perform even in demanding applications.

Reduce TCO if you use Joy CMs

If Joy 14CM Continuous Miners are part of your fleet, you can potentially stock fewer replacement parts and leverage your existing maintenance knowledge to help save both time and money: the 14BU27 loaders share a platform and many of the same parts.
