FH330 - Continuous Haulage
The FH330 is Caterpillar’s dimensional mining solution for low coal applications. This is a tough and proven product that moves a lot of coal. We’ve matched its high capacity to the production output of our Cat CM210, CM220 and CM230 continuous miners for system efficiency. If your mine is considering continuous haulage for processing material, the Cat FH330 can be a tremendous asset and productivity tool for your operation.
|Operating Height||0.9-1.3 m (36-50 in)|

Complimentary SystemsImproving your output through system integration.
Continuous MinersOur CM210, CM220, and CM230 models are all excellent matches to the performance and production capabilities of the FH330. Our continuous miners are all proven performers, with the CM210 being one of the most productive and powerful low seam miners available.
Roof BolterWith a tram height of just 81 cm (32 in) – the Cat RB220 fits nicely into this portfolio for dimensional mining. It features four wheel independent planetary drives for control and 4536 kg (10,000 lb) of drill feed thrust. Both simple to operate and reliable, the RB220 is a proven design with years of experience behind it.
ScoopsCat scoops offer long lasting value, super hauling capability and can be rebuilt for second and third service lives. Our pivoting center sections are exceptionally strong and keep the wheels firmly engaged on uneven ground. With a canopy installed, the SU488L will clear coal seams as low as 1067 mm (42 in).
