Abstract
This study evaluates the use of roadheaders in underground mining operations. The report identifies roadheader operating problems and offers suggestions for improved mechanical and electrical design along with manufacturer and owner responsibilities for improved availability. The development of a complex integrated excavation and ground support system is not warranted until the roadheader itself is made much more reliable.
