Large, off-road type construction and mining equipment (such as large excavators / shovels, draglines, haul trucks, wheeled loaders), underground mining equipment, and specialty vehicles (such as slag, pot and/or slab carriers, tunnel boring machines, waste management equipment, and forestry vehicles).
These types of equipment have large volumes of oils and hydraulic fluids under pressure. With a break in a large hydraulic line, fuel can spray onto many surfaces some possibly hot enough to cause ignition. With the large amount of fuels available, a variety of fires can occur, such as pressure, three dimensional, fuel-in-depth, and spill fires.
