Fabrication and Test of an Articulated Remote Manual Roof Bolter.
NTIS: PB/84-157866 :34 pages
The objective of this investigation was to fabricate, laboratory test, and perform an underground test and evaluate a prototype articulating remote manual bolter for greater-than-seam-height bolting. The machine operator is located under supported roof approximately 5 ft from the bolt being installed. The results demonstrate that roof bolting with the articulating chassis and the operator approximately 5 ft from the bolting operation is feasible.
