Continuous Miner

Continuous Miner

A continuous miner is used to cut coal from the face and load it onto a shuttle car or conveyor in a continuous operation. It cuts the coal using its large rotating drum with the teeth on the drum scraping or ripping the coal from the seam. The primary use of a continuous miner is to create roadways throughout the mine and to provide the face for the longwall miner.
