Joy continuous miners are available for standard and narrow width entry applications as well as low, mid, and high seam development.
Joy is known worldwide for the highest performing, most reliable cutter head gear cases in the industry. Our continuous miners are available with either solid-head or Ripperveyor cutting head systems, with a variety of cutter bit lacing configurations available.
Our continuous miners include our patented Optidrive AC traction system, which is coupled to a compact, all-gear transmission to provide smooth, reliable service. The cutter motor feedback and the traction differential features optimize sump performance even in the most demanding applications.
The hydraulic manifolds, standard on all continuous miner models, reduce hose assemblies and fitting counts to significantly reduce hydraulic fluid leak points. All serviceable parts for a circuit are in one common location and all pressure check points allow gauge connection/disconnection. Screw-adjusted relief valves are standard, while bolt-on caps permit easy access for troubleshooting/replacement on hydraulic or water segments.
