Caption on back reads, 'Making a cut in the coal face is this Mastodon of the machine age - an underground cutter. Rubber tired for mobility, and mounting a 9-foot cutting blade armed with whirring steel bits, it can cut a full 360 degree arc. This and similar machines give America's bituminous coal mines almost unlimited capacity for production.'
