The Petitto Mule was developed in 1978 as a longwall shield retriever for the mining industry.
It is primarily used as a swing and extending boom vehicle for the extraction of shields (roof supports) on longwall moves.
It is the industry standard for pulling long wall shields.
It is also used for general disassembly and reassembly of heavy components underground.
The Petitto Mule is available in several models that can handle shields in the 16 ton / 35 ton / 50 ton capacity ranges.
