    Hi Etienne, This equipment is on display at the Kansas Underground Salt Museum (www.undergroundmuseum.org /). I'd suggest getting in touch with them with your question.

    Hi Ron, I would like to know where that pic was taken. And if possible the name of the mine. I work in salt mines too and I would like to know more about that undercutting machine. Thanks , Etienne
