Trap Rail Haulage System

Supplier: Becker Mining Systems

One of the Becker top products is the floor-mounted rope-driven trap rail haulage system.


This system is ideal whenever man and material have to be conveyed rapidly and safely on inclined roads.

Thanks to its proven design, it does not go off the rails even when faced with gradients of 45 degrees and single loads of as much as 32 tons.

Outstanding three-dimensional curve behaviour, smooth running and perfect rope guidance are further engineering features of the Becker trap rail haulage system.

Available in rail gauges of 900 mm, it is an ideal solution for all transport requirements.

With drive options ranging from open rope, single rope or double rope arrangement and traction for normal, heavy duty and personnel haulage, this system can be perfectly adapted to any site.

For even more flexibility with the rail switches of branched rail systems or easy extending or shortening the rail track the floor-mounted rack-and pinion trap rail haulage system shows its advantages.

Regardless of whether for an effective and cost-efficient material or heavy duty haulage with single loads weights of up to 35 tons in tunnelling or as rational and safety driving aid for high-performance power supply - the extremely safe rack-and-pinion trap rail haulage system with pulling forces from 120 kN up to 300 kN and the very easy to handle rack-and-pinion rail systems without ropes and rope guidance gives highest performance and efficiency at the same time.

According to the haulage task, requirements, and haulage distance, different types of a floor-mounted rack-and pinion trap rail haulage system are available:

  • With diesel-hydraulic drive
  • With electrical drive and trailing cable
  • With electrohydraulic drive and trailing cable
