Uintah Machine has designed heavy-duty lowboy trailers to haul continuous miners and shearers into mines. We have also designed a combination trailer for hauling either miners or shearers into mines. Combination trailers are basically a longer, stronger version of miner trailers. Miner, shearer and combo trailers are built with two pivoting wheel boxes containing two wheels each. The pivots serve to keep four wheels on the ground at all times. The larger wheels in the rear of the wheel boxes can be equipped with optional brakes. Miner and combo trailers also have retractable wheels running 90° to the normal direction of operation for maneuvering in difficult areas. When extended, the rear end of the trailer is lifted to allow for sideways sliding. The extension frame or “stinger” is used as a lever when the cross wheels are extended. Miner and combo trailers have detachable goosenecks and built-in “ramps” to allow for easy loading of the machines. The gooseneck is equipped with a “cookie sheet” hitch which attaches to the gooseneck via a universal motion apparatus and a large bearing. All trailers are significantly overbuilt for the loads they must carry. We can meet your criteria for ground clearance.
We take pride in our work. You can count on receiving the toughest, highest-quality, lowest-maintenance, trailer around. Our customers have always been happy with our quality. Uintah is happy to design and build a miner trailer to meet your specific needs.
