I worked on a machine that crawls but a bit bigger than my 440! I tought you guys might like it. Pictures of a brand new Bucyrus Mining Rope shovel and also a new Cat 797F.

The shovel is powered by electricity on 7200V and the 797F has a V20 diesel engine, 4000 HP. When a truck like this climb a hill, loaded, what a sound! This is on the assembly pads of the mine located near Fermont, Qc at Mont Wright installations. The shovel can Load a 400 Tons haul truck with 4 passes of iron ore. Payload 80-90 Tons per bucket.

Good to see- I spent my career on these machines (about to retire after 40 years) I had design responsibility for much of the 495 series shovels particularly the electrics.

Now I have a lowly 420c ( great machine) which is younger than me an weighs about the same as one crawler pad on the 495!!

I'd hate to have to grease one of those things every day!
