Steady Rests

Uintah Machine (and predecessors) has been building steady rests to order since the late 70’s.  To this point (in 2016) we have built about 1300 of them.  Some have had capacities as small as a couple of inches, and other up to perhaps 60″, covering about every application imaginable.  We can build one for you.

Coal Haulers

Uintah Machine builds a line of MSHA Part 31 permissible diesel powered coal haulers. Patterned somewhat after the old Jeffrey 4114, but there are so many improvements that there really isn’t much to compare.  We use a Cummins engine package of 180HP, Clark transmission, Uintah Machine built transfer gear case, John Deere differentials with inboard wet disk brakes, and a beefy slewing bearing articulation. There is nothing to compare on the market today.


Misc Equipment and Services

In addition to trailers, Uintah Machine will design, redesign, rebuild, reverse engineer, and manufacture equipment to meet any of your mining needs. Along with the incomplete list of equipment shown above, we have designed and built a crusher, manufactured battery skids for nine ton batteries, reverse engineered side shields and caving beam shields and manufactured them for a lower cost than OEMs, and rebuilt everything from trailers, to ramcars to crashed mining vehicles. We also specialize in repairs of any sort including gearboxes. Additionally, we have re-powered vehicles with electronically-controlled motors. Uintah is happy to design and build equipment to meet your specific needs.

Water Trailers

We also build them with pneumatic brakes. Most of our water wagons have been built with 5th wheel hitches. We have designed and built several styles of water wagons and can build one to suit your purposes as well.

Underground Cranes

Uintah Machine designs and manufactures cranes for use inside mines. These cranes can be built integral with a tractor, as a detachable module, or on the bed of a pickup. They can be manufactured with no electrical components to avoid fire hazards. We have also manufactured radio-controlled cranes. Our largest crane to date can lift over 20,000 lb. at full extension, over 15ft behind the trailer. Extendable hydraulic stabilizers are standard. Hydraulic cylinder stabilizers to brace against the roof are optional.

It is difficult to meaningfully rate an underground crane in tons, because underground the booms can never stand up straight enough to compare with an above-ground crane. It is better to consider the foot-poundage for which they are rated.

We take pride in our work. You can count on receiving an exceptionally tough, high-quality, low-maintenance,underground crane. Our customers have always been happy with our quality. Uintah is happy to design and build an underground crane to meet your specific needs.

Concrete Trailers

Uintah Machine manufactures low profile concrete trailers of a variety of shapes and capacities. We have built them integral with tractors, and with pintle or gooseneck hitches. Some have hydraulically tilting drum decks. The drum is turned by a hydraulic motor in the front and supported by rollers on the top and bottom in the rear. Landing legs can be hydraulic or manual. On some smaller trailers with four wheels, landing legs are unnecessary. We also build them with optional cement chutes.

Three-Axle Trailers

Uintah Machine designs and manufactures 3-axle trailers to haul very heavy loads such as head and tail gearboxes underground. Rated for up to 80,000 lb. and running on rubber tires instead of steel, these trailers fill an important niche in the underground mine industry. The suspension on our 3-axle trailers equalizes the load among all 6 wheels while adjustable drag links keep the floating axles parallel with each other. The model shown here has a dropdeck bed with manual landing legs. The Uintah preferred model has a 24″ flat deck with bigger wheels and hydraulic landing legs. Accessories such as stakes and winches can also be added.

Supply Trailers

Supply trailers are a Uintah Machine specialty. They are famous for being long-lasting. They have been known to run maintenance-free, excluding periodic lubrication, for up to eight years! (Even we can’t keep tires from wearing out.) Incredibly durable and rugged, of world-class quality. We have been asked to refurbish trailers built by other companies to make them like ours. Uintah Machine manufactures a large variety of trailers for general use. They have been designed and built in many shapes and sizes to transport many types of equipment, materials, utilities, and supplies. Some have hydraulic push-plates for easy unloading. They have a 20 ton carrying capacity. Deck heights of 24″ are the norm, but heights as low as 18″ can be obtained. Stake pockets are optional, as are sideboards, headboards and rub bars are also available. Landing legs can be manual or hydraulic. They can be built with a standard pintle hitch, retractable pintle hitch, fifth wheel hitch or fifth wheel with folding gooseneck to let them go down a shaft. Also consider an optional tail roll, a retractable cover attached at the rear of the trailer that can be unrolled and attached at the front to prevent debris from escaping during transportation. As a standard, the trailers are equipped with Uintah Machine’s walking beam suspension to keep four wheels on the ground at all times for a relatively smooth ride and increased carrying capacity. Uintah is happy to design and build a supply trailer to meet your specific needs.

Roof support can trailers are flat bed trailers with decks that tilt to roll the cans off. See the drawings for more information and safety features. Power center trailers are built to hold portable underground power centers. Pump trailers have pumps in a cage at the end of the trailer. The trailer is backed into the water, the cage lowered and the pumps started for emergency flood control. Skid steer loader trailers do just what their name implies. They are low ground clearance trailers that haul skid steer loaders underground. Block trailers haul concrete mine support blocks into mines. Belt structure trailers are used for hauling channels and belt equipment. Cable tub trailers haul cable lengths in a large “tub”. The tub doesn’t have any sharp corners that would damage the cables. Roof bolter supply trailers are double decker trailers designed to be pulled alone or in chains of two. Loaded bins of roof bolts are loaded on the lower deck and winched in using sheaves at the front of the trailers. Empty bins are stowed on the top decks. Rollers facilitate loading the empty bins. The trailers have sliding adjustable pintle hitches. And hydraulic landing legs.
