Uintah’s basic shield hauler models are open-bottom and open-back trailers fitted with hydraulic cylinders and heavy chains. The shield fits inside the “horseshoe” and is lifted and carried with the cylinders and chains. Shields can be hauled in the mine only inches above the ground with their centers of gravity between the wheels on the shield hauler. They are the fastest way to move shields long distances. Other variations include heavy-duty oscillation plate suspension for a smooth ride, load equalization on the tires, and optimum braking performance.
Uintah has developed multiple disc wet service brakes and multiple disc spring-applied / hydraulic-released brakes intense braking power. They can be fit to nearly all Uintah shield hauler models.They fit entirely within the wheel and do not add to the overall width of the machine.
Another optional feature is a lifting pan with a hydraulic winch for loading and a hydraulic push plate for unloading. The pan sets flat on the ground for loading, with the shield being pulled by means of a winch.The pan is lifted hydraulically and carried a few inches off the ground.For unloading, the pan tilts down at the rear allowing the shield to slide out with aid from the push plate.Nylon pads protect the shields and lifting pans from abrasion.
Our unique, rugged design saves thousands of dollars in wear and tear on forked shield transporters and tires. In fact, shield haulers have been known to pay for themselves in one long wall move in tire savings alone.
We manufacture self propelled shield haulers built integral with the power unit of your choice.They can be built on built on Wagner 14X and 20X machines, Getmans, Jeffrey RamCars.We can also build on Uintah’s own Part 31 permissible tractor based on the coal haulers we build.
Uintah has built many units, mostly for repeat customers and have even caught the attention off mining companies as far away as China.
We take pride in our work. You can count on receiving the highest- quality, lowest-maintenance shield hauler available. Our customers have always been happy with our quality. Uintah is happy to design and build a shield hauler to meet your specific needs.
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.

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.
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.
We take pride in our work. You can count on receiving the toughest, highest-quality, lowest-maintenance, concrete trailer around. Our customers have always been happy with our quality. Uintah is happy to design and build a concrete trailer to meet your specific needs.
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.

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. atfull 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.
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 andrub 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 hitchor 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.
Uintah Machine manufactures low profile belly dump gravel trailers with brakes and hydraulic or manual landing legs. The gates are operated hydraulically. Our standard trailer has an 8 cubic yard capacity. Air reservoirs and other hydraulic and pneumatic components are protected from falling objects and other blows. Each trailer is made with 1/2″ x 4″ x 12″ tube frame for stiffness and strength. The trailers are built with 5th wheel hitches.

Uintah Machine manufactures hydraulically operated dump-bed trailers. The bins on these trailers are hydraulically tilted to dump the contents, such as trash or rock dust, out the back. The tail gate shown pivots at the top and swings freely when the bin is tilted. It can be locked closed during transportation or we can put the hinges vertically on the side so that the tailgate(s) swing to the side. We will build yours with the hitch type that you require, be it goose neck, pintle hitch, or something else.The drawing below shows a single-axle model.We also build them with two axles and Uintah Machine’s walking beam suspension which keeps all four wheels on the ground at all times for a relatively smooth ride and greater load carrying capacity.
