Bringing new technologies, based on the use of hydraulic backhoes, in a variety of mining and geological conditions of the coal deposits of Kuzbass, inevitably imposes a number of scientific and practical problems. One of them is to establish the area and limits of independent or joint application in the coal-bearing zone of mechanical (rope) shovels and backhoes, thereby ensuring maximum profit while using the advantages of both types of equipment. The task of solving this issue is certainly relevant. In this article, the authors propose to use the modular method as a tool to calculate the indicators of layer development when different types of excavation and loading equipment work jointly.
