Precision Surface Excavation Machines are becoming more popular because they help to reduce noise and pollution in sensitive areas. Precision surface excavation machines are versatile units that utilize a slicing drum to mechanically unearth materials and have advantages over the customary drilling and blasting strategies. Surface excavation machines are low in noise, dust and vibration and can cut more precisely and produce a smaller, more consistent particle size thus eliminating the need of a primary crusher.

This is particularly important in mines in environmentally sensitive areas where noise and dirt pollution needs to be minimized due to environmental regulation and pressure.
