ABSTRACT
Due to special conditions of functioning of machinery and devices used in coal mining,
the process of its selection is important and should comprise variability of working
conditions. A short review of methods of assessment of coal workability used as yet was
done and the results were divided into groups. Significance of measurements and
assessment of mechanical characteristics (including workability) is proven by
worldwide in scientific centres by numerous elaborated methods of its assessment.
In the article there was described new devices used in determining and assessing
mechanical characteristics of coal that significantly influence durability and reliability
of mining machinery.

Keywords: maintenance, reliability, methods of measurement, experimental research,
measuring device.
