MUV: Mine Utility Vehicle


The MÜV side-by-side utility vehicle by Hoffman Manufacturing, Inc. has been developed to withstand the rigors of underground mine use. UTV’s provide a great platform for underground transportation, but few are built to withstand the harsh conditions experienced in underground use. We have studied many common failure points and maintenance issues including suspension, rolling assemblies, cargo boxes, and overall ergonomics to develop robust components and solutions for each. The MÜV includes engineered solutions and high quality components to deliver the toughest side-by-side utility vehicle available.

Here is a look at key features:

High durability

This vehicle features highly durable construction—including engineered suspension bushings, fabricated A-Arms, aftermarket wheel bearings, aftermarket ball joints, fabricated body armor, and sealed front hubs—meaning it will withstand even the harshest of underground conditions. A heavy duty cargo box makes easy work of transporting materials and equipment. A master disconnect switch makes it easy to disconnect power from the battery for maintenance or preventing battery drain.

Safety first

A variety of features come together to ensure that vehicle operators remain safe in heavy traffic, underground conditions. Powerful LED lights, whips, and strobes maximize visibility and make for easy navigation. A reverse-activated backup alarm and horn warn nearby workers of the moving vehicle. Duraclutch with special descent control allows vehicle operators to descend in rough terrain smoothly without needing to touch the brake pedal.

In addition to our MÜV side-by-side utility vehicle, we also design, build, and integrate custom equipment for mining utility vehicles. Visit our Mine Utility Vehicles page to learn more about our custom build work.
