Abstract
This report presents technical progress in designing four machines to be used in mining coal underground, applying innovative concepts at the design stage. A study phase was followed by design activity, including calculations supporting the designs. Scale models of three machines were built, and a full-scale mockup of the conventional loader was used to measure human factors parameters.
