MH -17

The concept of the demining machine MH-17 was based on experience in the production of machines MH-05, the experience of using the MH-05 machine at demining sites in BIH and Sudan, maintaining machines MH-05 in BIH as well as in Sudan, tracking different machine solutions for demining of other manufacturers through data from the catalog of the International Geneva Center for Humanitarian Demining and international presentations of demining machines, and monitoring of testing of all machines that work in Bosnia and Herzegovina, carried out by the Mine Action Center in BIH.

We have made improvements in terms of comfort, machine handling, protection against explosion, productivity and design.

    At the request of the client TRB organizes:

  • Training (theoretical and practical) for personal handling the machine
  • Training (theoretical and practical), for staff and machine maintenance


  • Instructions for handling the machine
  • Instructions for machine maintenance
  • Catalog of spare parts
  • Specification of the required standard and special tools and equipment for maintenance of the machine
  • Specification of recommended spare parts for a certain period of use of the machine
  • Specification of the consumables for the machine


To solve Bosnia and Herzegovina’s problem of post-war mine contamination, the implementation of Mechanical Demining Machine (MDM) began, as they proved to be the most adequate clearance solutions. A few machines were used before, but proved to be either inefficient, or effective but far too expensive. It was obvious that what was needed was the production of new MDMs that would both meet the international demining standards and come at a reasonable cost. To meet those requirements, we brought together a group of skilful military mechanical engineers with decades of experience in design and maintenance of such machines and their use in the process of humanitarian demining. We created MH - 05.

Over 10.000.000 m2 were cleared during the last 10 years on the territory of Bosnia and Herzegovina with MH-05 machines.


Today, machines are in use by military units in Balkans and by the National Mine Action Centre, Sudan. With years of experience and expertise, the company is an ideal partner in dealing with humanitarian demining with the use of mechanical demining machines .
