After the success of the Rexx, Bis has unveiled the Razor underground grader

Perth-headquartered machinery manufacturer Bis has invented and unveiled an underground grader for the coal sector, which has been designed to be safer, more productive and agile.

Aptly named Razor, the cutting-edge machine has been developed by Bis’ Tomago-based underground services team, with the grader the first in a pipeline of new innovative products the company has planned for the sector.

Bis general manager Mark Doyle says the grader has more tractive effort, increased power, is safer for the operator and has been designed for more uptime.

"The concept for Razor started within underground by looking at existing machines and talking to grader operators to understand how we could design a better product – all the way from performance to changing the cab ergonomics to improve comfort," he says.

"Increasing safety was at the forefront of the design process."

Razor went on a customer roadshow across New South Wales and Queensland. Upon returning to Newcastle it was put to work at a local underground coal mine.

In the last 12 months, Bis has expanded its large footprint in the underground sector through the acquisition of leading businesses UGM and Jaxam, which specialise in diesel repairs and servicing, fabrication and overhauls.

The development of Razor follows the invention of Bis’ dump truck Rexx. A second Rexx is now being built by Bis for deployment into an ongoing commercial haulage contract.
