Petitto Mule

  • 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.
