The ripper-loader with cutting operating member is designed to mechanize the process of ripping and loading of the rock mass with hardness f= 5-6 units and abrasiveness up to 15 mg in horizontal and inclined (± 12°) mine workings, which are dangerous by gas and dust. No analogues, machine is created for the first time.
The machine is a self-propelled crawler truck with the cutting (in the form of two rotary bits with the horizontal rotation axis) operating member the circular chain-and-flight conveyor with rotary and lifting sections, with the hydraulic and electrical system, the dust suppression system and control means.
The machine performs breaking, loading and, if necessary, transportation of rock mass to the mine transportation devices.
