Abstract
This user's manual analyzes the application, selection, and performance of front-end loaders in mining operations that can effectively utilize front-end loader load-and-carry capability. All aspects of the application are considered starting with a discussion of the load-and-carry system and alternate material handling methods. Site conditions such as the geology of the formation, material characteristics, alternative mine plans, and working conditions are identified. Selection considerations include machine design characteristics, production capabilities, ownership, and operating costs. Typical operating practices and safety procedures are discussed. Comprehensive machine specifications, together with a series of checklists and worksheets, are included for preliminary analysis.
