  • This year, Consol Energy's Bailey Mine completed its first 1,5000 ft. face longwall panel using an Eickhoff SL 750 shearer loader. A second1,500 ft. face is currently being mined with Eickhoff SL 750 shearer. The longwall panels are about 12,000 ft. long.

  • China takes first 4 new SL 900 shearer loaders in 2010. They are scheduled for delivery to the Shenhua Energy and Yushen Coal Comapnies in the fourth quarter.
