240-volt machines feature OptiDrive technology for improved performance

January 13, 2022 – Scoops are true utility workhorses in your soft rock mine. They handle multiple tasks, including maintenance, re-supply, clean-up and rock dusting. To help get the job done, the redesigned battery-powered Joy 02ESV scoops offer excellent operator comfort and robust time between charges.

Equipped with OptiDrive technology developed specifically for these next-generation 240-volt machines, OptiDrive can improve reliability, boost operator productivity, improve motor performance and help reduce maintenance costs. OptiDrive is easier to maintain and troubleshoot because it has fewer cable runs.

Designed to help minimize downtime, these scoops have new electronics that eliminate switches, and the color display provides real-time operational and fault information to keep operators informed. Additional drive input modules allow the OptiDrive control system to interface with third-party proximity detection systems.
