Don't Enter The Turning Radius
Until the Remote Control
Continuous Miner Stops Moving
|Mine Type: Underground Coal and Non-Metal|
|Category: Section Face Equipment|
To avoid crushing injuries, do not enter the Turning Radius surrounding a remote control continuous mining machine until the pump motor has been turned off and the machine has COMPLETELY STOPPED.
If a remote control continuous mining machine is tramming, turning, or rotating, it may continue to move for a few seconds after the pump motor is turned off or the machine off switch is activated. During this time, the machine may travel a few extra feet especially when operating on uneven bottom.
