    I think two 40' pushers and Walmart parking lots will be able to be done so quick we'll be able to afford USM's pricing.

    Yeah those piles really make the loaders look small. Supposedly we should move one of those piles per day or about 400-500 tons per hour. 10,000 to 12,000 tons per day = about 900 buckets in 24 hours.

    Today was our first full day with two shifts so I don't know what the results were.

    The mine has two CAT 992 K Loaders on site. They make our 988 look like a 950. On one of the 992's it has a full chain mail wrapped around the tires so they last longer. I hope I can get some pics of them as well.

    If we weren't expecting a big snow storm here in Ottawa I would actually take you up on the offer.

    Are they working them right through Christmas? payup

    This is the new contract place at the mine? Looks good. So when you say 900 buckets in a 24 hour shift, is this for the both loaders? I dont know much about how far the loader travels to the rocks destination but it seems that 38 or so buckets an hour would have to be between the two loaders right?

    Nice pics. That's what the loaders were built for.
