CONT

Haveuses Shortwall. Elles sont très employées aux U.S.A. On les a baptisées shortwall (front court) par opposition aux haveuses de taille ou «longwall». Elles sont en deux parties assemblées par boulons et goujons (au lieu de trois parties dans les longwall). L'avant contient le moteur. L'arrière comprend à la fois l'attaque du bras (bras rigide qui se prolonge sous la haveuse) et celle de deux tambours de halage à axe horizontal. La machine est complétée par plusieurs poulies de renvoi de câble, placées aux angles de la machine.
