In room and pillar mining, significant amounts of ore may need to be left untouched to support the overburden above the underground mine. Although the pillars may make this type of mine less prone to collapse, they can also make it more difficult to recover costs and attain high profitability.
Whether your team is responsible for extracting high-grade deposits of iron, coal or another resource, you need the right equipment to succeed. At The Cat® Rental Store, we offer reliable room and pillar rental equipment to help you boost productivity and grow your business.
Room and pillar mining operations rely on many types of equipment to get work done quickly — this includes scoops, face haulers, feeder breakers, continuous haulage machines, roof bolters, continuous miners and more. Workers need access to safe, effective equipment to meet production goals and navigate the underground working environment with confidence, which is why we offer several rooms and pillar rental options.
Like all products manufactured by Caterpillar, these mining machines are designed to withstand harsh conditions and operate safely for many years. They also come with plenty of features to help you maximize productivity and return on investment, whether you're working on a short-term mining project or a long-term one. The CM445 continuous miner, for example, offers 1,185 horsepower, and the SH150 has a load capacity of 55 tons. Both machines allow you to extract and haul high volumes of material efficiently.
If you're not sure which type of room and pillar rental equipment will best suit your needs, our knowledgeable product experts are always available to help. They know the underground mining industry and the technology involved, and they may even be able to locate a specific piece of equipment if you don't see it in our selection. We also offer flexible rental terms, which can make it easy to get the machinery you need within your budget.
Mining companies may choose to rent mining equipment for a variety of reasons. If you need to increase production immediately, temporarily replace broken-down equipment or find continuous miners and other equipment for a short-term project, renting could prove cost-effective. You can also choose to rent equipment and try it out before making a purchase.
No matter why you decide to rent, The Cat Rental Store offers the level of service you expect from a rental company. We check our equipment carefully before and after renting it out to ensure you receive products in good condition, and we provide online and onsite service as needed to keep your operation running smoothly.
