A 1 horsepower electric motor, a reduction gear and a drum to wind up the conveyor are mounted underneath the elevator, which raises the manure into the spreader. The picture at the right shows the conveyor which removes the manure from the gutter. It is made of two -inch log chains, with angle iron cross cleats bolted to the chains about every two feet. The single cable at the end is the pull-back cable. It runs through a pulley to a 13 horsepower pull-back motor, equipped with a small reduction gear, to return the conveyor to the gutter. . Although the unit described he-e is used in a 1 -gutter barn, similarly operated cleaners of other types work in 2-gutter barns.

The Bituminous Coal Institute points out that millions of dollars spent by the companies for new mechanical installations and improvements, were an important factor in making this record possible. - Pictured above is a giant motor operating a huge fan which saved many lives when a recent mine explosion occurred here. This fan, exhausting 450,000 cubic feet of air per minute, through an extra air shaft, recently installed, kept the air pure while 250 miners reached a special escape shaft and came up from the mine. Casualties were thus limited to those in the immediate vicinity of the explosion. Inspecting the life-saving- machinery are Safety Engineer C. L. Wilson and Mine Inspector J. L. Gilley.
