Tsubaki’s Iron Hawk Series Forged Miner Chains have earned a reputation for being resilient and tough — the perfect combination required to serve the demanding needs of underground mines. Proudly engineered, forged and made in the United States from a proprietary blend of premium domestic steels and refined heat treatments, the Iron Hawk Series was designed to provide superior strength, maximum toughness and legendary dependability.
The chains are available in two styles — straight and swivel.
The straight model is designed as a direct replacement for most OEM shuttle cars and straight conveyor applications. It features an innovative flight design for enhanced and efficient material transfer, premium spring steel wedding band style closures, and is available in standard wingspans from 22.5 to 30.5 inches. Custom lengths are also available.
The swivel model, on the other hand, is a universal direct drop in replacement for most OEM continuous miners and shuttle cars. It features a dynamic swivel link, which allows for 35 degrees of rotational flexibility, an innovative flight design for enhanced and efficient material transfer, and premium spring steel wedding band style closures. Swivel chains are available in standard wingspans from 22.5 to 36.2 inches, though custom lengths are available.
