Material handling devices for underground mines.
Washington, DC: U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Mines, IC 9212, 1989 Jan; :1-48
This report presents engineering drawings for six material handling devices for underground coal mines. The devices were designed under a U.S. Bureau of Mines program to reduce injuries from material handling during mine and equipment maintenance. The six devices are scoop-mounted lift boom, swing-arm boom, heavy-component lift-transport, mine mud cart, container-workstation vehicle, and timber car. Each device is described briefly, and recommendations are made concerning the design of new devices.
