    I had the chance to check out a sweet loader at a mine we are working at moving ore with our CAT 988 and 980. I think I will get a chance to operate it before the job is done. Stay tuned I will post more pics soon.

    Here are a few more pics. The first on is their 992 beside a CAT 966 G.
    The second one is of our CAT 980 beside their 992. The 3rd one is one of our 988 moving the ore piles. We are moving about 10000 tons a day. Each 10 ton bucket contains anywhere from $10000 to $30000 worth of gold depending on the grade.

    Sweet.

    Our local Cat dealer has a 992 (can't remember which model, but it's an older one) sitting along the highway. First time I saw it I about drove off the road looking at it.

    Awesome machines.

    I wondered how much something like that would cost.

    All of the gold and diamond mines I've been to require you to wear THEIR shoes or covers to prevent just such things from happening. Copper, nickel, etc don't seem to mind as much...
