New High-seam Shearer
Eickhoff Mining has announced the
availability of the SL 900 Shearer
Loader, its newest high-seam shearer.
The Eickhoff SL 900 has a mining
range of 7.8 to 13.5 ft (2.6 to 4.5 m),
and is considered an intermediate-size
machine between the company’s SL
750 and the SL 1000. According to
Eickhoff, the SL 900 combines many of
the advantages of the two other shearers
with its mining range flexibility and
installed power rating of 3,154 hp
Three SL 900s have already been
ordered and delivered to China in
2011—two to Shenhua Energy Coal Co.
and one to Yushuwa Coal Co. A fourth
shearer will be delivered during the second
quarter of 2011 to Shenhua
Energy, according to the company.
