    They will be switching to Cat haul trucks and a Cat wheel loader. Any gravel mine that has tried Komatsu haul trucks or Loaders have gotten rid of them because they fall apart fast.

    It replaced a sixteen hundred, and 1200 excavator which are both currently for sale. I wanted to actually apply for a job up there but that coal seam is all going to be 115 union guys. I remember the first time I saw one in fort mac, I thought it was so huge, they the 8800 walked close to it and made it looks like a shrimmp

    All about production get the material moved quick as you can. It would get boring after awhile loading trucks 10 hours a day.

    I can't imagine how much fuel that machine would suck back with twin V-16s yes you Cummins lovers it is a V configured engine. The engines weigh 7 tons each and hold a drum of engine oil :laugh:

    Yeah, Ever since I saw a new CAT 328 zero swing front shovel, I've always wanted one. Thought it could get some real niche work. This is double the size, but I've had my eye on it, not like I have work/or could afford it. But it's an awesome deal, pretty young machine hours wise, and rough around the edges can be fixed. Ledges and spaces where large loaders can't turn around in the interior could really employ this thing.
