Anderson Strathclyde Ltd
Longwall Mining

This heavy-duty trepanner was used in longwall mining. The core-like action of the cutter would create coal in chunks, often used for steam coal where large lumps were preferred.

Originally known as Anderson Mavor Ltd after the merging of Anderson Boyes and Mavor and Coulson, the Scottish firm of Anderson Strathclyde Ltd produced coal cutters and loaders for the British and foreign markets.
