Innovative. Purpose-engineered.

Underground hard rock mining personnel carriers and utility vehicles.


Kovatera engineers and manufactures the safest underground mining utility vehicles in its class. They are purpose-built from the ground-up and offer three times the economic life when compared to automotive-style trucks, with twice the payload capacity. 

With regular maintenance, Kovatera’s total cost of ownership is 50% of automotive-style offerings. And we back our engineering and manufacturing process with a 5-year or 5000-hour chassis guarantee.
