Abstract
The function of mobile loading equipment as part of the material handling systems in surface coal mines is explained. Advantages and disadvantages of the loading equipment are discussed, and comparisons are made of different types of equipment; however, it is noted that conditions change from mine site to mine site. The applicability of each piece of equipment for a given mine site or under specific circumstances is left to the reader. In addition, some of the most recent attempts made to improve equipment performance are discussed.
