Haven't been around, busy busy busy at work. Lots of overtime. Here is a pic of one of the worlds biggest cranes we have here now, can't take a pic of it here, but this is the same one. It took 199 tractor trailers to get it here and 3 or 4 big cranes to put it together. It will be picking up 372 tons here which is a light load for it.

Big equipment like this gives me...



When I was a kid, my buddy's grandpa took us to see these old abandoned drag lines... The links on the chains holding the buckets were about a foot long each... The buckets themselves were enormous... You could fit a decent sized car in them... It was ever more awe inspiring when your are only 9 years old or so...

Amax Coal used to operate one of the largest draglines in the world at it's Delta Mine in Southern Illinois in the town of Marion...you could park 2 full size pickups end to end in the bucket. It had 4 1000HP electric motors running it and the claim was it ran 24/7 because if they shut it down, it would take as much power for start up as a community of 25K people would use in a day...

Here is a pic I found on a site that sells Coal Mine memorabilia
