The room-and-pillar underground mining products under strategic review include continuous miners, feeder breakers, coal haulage systems, highwall miners, roof bolters, utility vehicles and diesel vehicles.

Cat will stop taking new orders and it expects to downsize 155 in Houston, Pennsylvania, where the room-and-pillar products are manufactured. While the company intends to sell the room-and-pillar division, it said it will also assess other options, including a possible closure of the Houston facility.
