Design and Development of Protective Canopies for Underground Low Coal Electric Face Equipment, Including Shuttle Cars - 6 Volume Set. Volume 3 - Installation and Maintenance Manual: Cutter.
NTIS: PB/240-543 :74 pages
This manual, the second of five, provides instructions for installing, operating, and maintaining protective canopies on the Joy Manufacturing Company cutter. The canopy has an expanded metal mesh top that prevents hazardous-size debris from falling on the operator. Other protective features include deflection bumpers, which prevent large slabs or rocks from entering the protective canopy work station but do not limit the operator's visibility; a spring-return, swing-down bumper for side protection against rib rolls or collisions with the rib or other equipment; and controls for raising and lowering each canopy individually.
