World's Largest Mining Shovel - The Silver Spade
 
03:56
The Silver Spade was a giant power shovel used for strip mining in southeastern Ohio. Manufactured by Bucyrus-Erie, South Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the model 1950-B was one of two of this model built, the other being the GEM of Egypt. Its sole function was to remove the earth and rock overburden from the coal seam. Attempts to purchase and preserve the shovel from Consol for $2.6 million fell short, and the shovel was scrapped in February 2007.

Steaming Across Panama: Bucyrus and the Digging of the Panama Canal
 
07:57
The Panama Canal is a 48 mile (77.1 kilometre) ship canal that connects the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean. August 15, 2014, marked the 100th anniversary of its opening, and in 2016 a 9-year expansion project was completed. Join us for a look back at the major role Bucyrus played in the construction of the Panama Canal. The Isthmain Canal Commission for the Panama Canal construction project awarded their first steam shovel bid to Bucyrus (Caterpillar Inc. acquired Bucyrus International, Inc. on July 8, 2011) Ultimately, Bucyrus would be called upon to provide 70% of the equipment used to dig the canal. In the years since its construction, several projects have helped to widen and expand the Panama Canal. Cat and Bucyrus products have been involved in the construction and expansion of the canal throughout its history, making progress possible.

Big Muskie - The Largest Walking Dragline Ever Built
 
04:55
Standing 22 stories tall and weighing 13,500 metric tons, Big Muskie was the world's largest dragline and the biggest machine that has ever walked on the face of the earth. With the boom down, it was almost 500 ft in length. Big Muskie was a coal mining Bucyrus-Erie dragline owned by the Central Ohio Coal Company. It removed more than twice the amount of earth moved during the construction of the Panama Canal. Its bucket could hold two Greyhound buses side by side. I was talking to a guy in a bar in Fort Stockton,Texas in 2001. When I told him I was from Ohio he said he just came back from Ohio. He was on a crew that was cutting up "Big Muskie". He said he was there a year outside of Zanesville. He was surprised that I never heard of Big Muskie. I was surprised when he said it took a year to cut up. Here's why.....

Antique Construction Equipment Playing in the Dirt at Gerhart Machinery Co. - Lititz, PA 10/6/18
 
06:59
This weekend, I attended the Antique Truck Club of America (ATCA) Mack Days truck show at Gerhart Machinery Company in Lititz, PA. In the back of the showgrounds, a few club members brought out their old construction equipment for a demonstration in the "sandbox" area. Shown in the video are a 1955 Northwest 80D crane with a cable shovel, a 1965 Bucyrus-Erie 22B crane with a dragline, a 1960's Euclid R20 offroad haul truck (originally powered by a 6-71 Detroit Diesel, repowered with a 280 HP Cummins NTC-855), a 1960's Mack B-422 gas dump truck, and a Caterpillar 977 track loader. I also included a couple pictures of some other machines that were parked in the yard. Many of these machines were retired from construction sites and coal mines in Pennsylvania and are being preserved by the Gerhart Company, rather than scrapped. There aren't very many people out there these days who still know how to operate this kind of equipment, so it was great to be able to see the old iron getting put to work at the show. These machines are a dying breed for sure.

Bucyrus-Erie 50-B Steam Shovel - Sept. 2000 - Part 1
 
25:50
This is the 50-B that is now at Rollag. The shovel had been thoroughly overhauled by its previous owner, but then the old operator retired. None of the younger operators wanted to mess with it, so it sat for many years until Belleview Sand & Gravel bought it and brought it back to life. Contrary to the title on the video, this was apparently not the first operation. Also seen is Belleview's rare Linn halftrack dump truck. The first half of Part 1 is shot from the ground, the second half is onboard. It's a brutal machine. Part 2 is entirely onboard, and there may be a Part 3, after the next tape is converted. Controls are more or less to Bucyrus-Erie standard. Swing on the left, pulled or pushed in the direction of swing, crowd in the center. You can see the linkage to the crowd engine on the boom. Hoist is from the ceiling, and is a 4-way lever. Forward is hoist, back lowers the bucket on air compression, ie a Jake Brake. Moving the lever to the side declutches the hoist for fast gravity lowering. It travels on the hoist. Since compressing air is useless for propulsion, there is a secondary control lever that allows powering in either direction. Steering is done by a ground man levering dog clutches on the sprocket shafts in and out. Controls appear to be very light, as all levers are just throttles controlling the 3 independent motion engines. Thus it shouldn't be too tiring to run, except for the vibration. This was an open house, not an HCEA convention, as that was held in Seward, Nebraska in 2000. We were at the great 1994 convention at Belleview, and probably have some Hi-8 video from it. My recollection is that at the 1994 HCEA convention, this 50-B was a static display near the shop, with the bucket chained in the air. Great to see that they got it going. This video was shot with a Sony Handycam in Digital 8. This format used 2 hour Hi-8 analog videotapes, running at 2x speed, to produce high quality 1 hour digital video. It was a revolutionary format at the time, and was used extensively by news media for field news gathering, such as in Iraq. A bit of image quality is lost in the MS moviemaker editor, losing some of the striking immediacy of the format. Note that it is interlaced, and sized for broadcast televisions of the time. This is the first video from a large box full of 75(!) of these 1 hour tapes, that WurliTzer153Duplex is gradually converting via FireWire. These were shot by both of us, with several cameras, and it's interesting to figure out who did what. There is some cool stuff in there. #569 Belleview Sand & Gravel, Petersburg, Ky September 2000 Sony Handycam Digital 8 20000923d 50 B Part1

Top 10 Biggest Vehicles Of All Time

Top 10 Biggest Vehicles Of All Time ► Subscribe: https://goo.gl/vHN6qB For copyright matters please contact us at: [email protected] As the world progresses, the need for bigger machines arises. From giant pieces of mining equipment and flying cargo fortresses, to incredibly huge moving platforms transporting tons of equipment. We went out to find some of these legendary giants and put together 10 Biggest Vehicles of All Time. 10. Bagger 293 - If you've never seen this massive earth mover before, then you would be amazed by its sheer size. The Bagger 293 is the largest land vehicle in the world and holds the Guinness World record. It is the latest in a series of large earth moving excavators, with this one being the largest of them all. 9. Nasa Crawler Transporter - This is the biggest crawler-transporter in the world. It’s amazing that something that was designed over 50 years ago is still the largest track vehicles ever made. 8. SPMT - Almost like the NASA Transporter, but utilizing rubber tires and wheels. The SPMT, or 'Self-Propelled Modular Transporters' consist of different modules with 4, 5, 6 and 8 axle lines. Load capacity differs per version, with a maximum of up to 44 tons per axle line. 7. Caterpillar 797B - These large dump trucks have been in production since 1998, and are Caterpillar's largest and highest capacity dump trucks, or often called a 'haul-truck'. The engine in this beast has 3,400 horsepower, and gets that from a 24-cylinder electronic unit injection, quad single-stage turbocharged, liquid after-cooled, four-stroke diesel engine, the Cat 3524B HD. 6. BelAZ 75710 - If you want to know what the largest haul truck in the world is, take a look at the BelAZ 75710. This giant earth moving machine that was built in 2013 has a conventional two-axle setup, but the wheels are doubled to four wheels per axle. It needs eight 59 by 80R 63 inch tires. 5. Prelude FLNG - The Prelude is the world’s second floating liquefied natural gas platform as well as the world’s biggest offshore facility ever constructed. This massive floating rig 1,601 feet long, and 243 feet wide. It was made with more than 260,000 tons of steel, and fully loaded will displace more than 600,000 tons. 4. Antonov an-225 Mriya - It's hard to get an idea of just how big this airplane is without seeing it person, but just one of its wings is the same width as an entire Airbus A320, and it’s also double the length of the passenger jet. It was designed and built in Ukraine, part of the Soviet Union in the 1980s, by the Antonov Corporation to carry Soviet space shuttles. 3. LeTourneau TC-497 Overland Train - is the world’s longest off-road vehicle. It is able to move 100 tons of cargo over sand, snow, and other rough terrain. The TC-497, at 572 feet long, had four 1,170 horsepower solar gas turbine engines with a total of 4,680 horsepower. 2. Schwerer Gustav 800mm Rail Cannon - Named after the head of the Krupp family, the Gustav Gun weighed in at a massive 1344 tons, so heavy that even though it was attached to a rail car, it still had to be disassembled before moving so as to not destroy the twin set of tracks as it passed over. Gustav eventually went to war at the siege of Sevastopol in July 1942. 1. The Terex/Bucyrus RH400 - The Bucyrus RH400, owned by Caterpillar, is the world’s biggest hydraulic excavators. It was originally launched by Terex in Germany in 1997, but Bucyrus acquired the mining equipment division of Terex in 2010, and Bucyrus was acquired by Caterpillar in 2011.

Bucyrus Erie 3850-B Power Shovel (Peabody Coal Co. - Sinclair Surface Mine) "Big Hog"
 
10:01
Peabody Coal Company ordered this machine for one purpose and one purpose only, the Tennessee Valley Authority. It was built to supply the (at the time) brand new TVA Paradise Fossil Plant and its 3 MASSIVE coal hungry units. TVA and Paradise Fossil Plant still buy Muhlenberg County coal and Peabody coal to this day! This video just shows the old girl going through some simple cycles in the pit. You do catch a few views of some pit activity and stuff as well! Enjoy. Some interesting facts about this machine my Grandfather & Aunt used to work on: -Boom Length: 215 feet -Overall Height: 220 feet -Bucket Capacity: 115 cubic yards -Crawler Size: 40 ft. long by 7.6 ft. wide -Crawler Height: 10 feet -Overall Weight: 22 Million lbs. -Date Started: 1962 -Date Retired:1987 (roughly) -Location: Outside Central City/Drakesboro in Muhlenberg County, Kentucky (Western Kentucky) **When this shovel was built, it was easily considered the "World's Largest Machine/Shovel" ever built. It held that title for a relatively short time though unfortunately. This machine was left somewhat intact, but higher portions were cut off of it when it walked into a hole that it dug for itself. After everything was trimmed off, the Sinclair BE 1260-W Dragline filled the dirt in around the machine and it was literally buried close to the TVA power plant on Peabody Property. That property is now owned by the US Government and trespassing is strictly forbidden. To this day, the legendary "Big Hog" still resides under a deep number of feet of dirt in Muhlenberg County. The Big Hog was featured in an article in the January 1963 "Science and Mechanics" Magazine. An artistic rendering of this machine graced that issues cover. I'll never forget seeing this machine parked in its own grave that it dug, just waiting for the dirt and cutters torch. I had a grandfather and an aunt that worked around and on this shovel during its life. It will always be part of my family just like the Marion 5960 Shovel across the county at River Queen Mine!

Pictures show the Moura Coal Mine - on of the largest open cut mines in Australia. Most noticeable equipment at the site is a huge dragline, the only one of it's kind in the Commonwealth. Imported from the United States by the American Company which controls mining operations. In the cabin, the operator manovres the massive boom with the simplest of controls. Various shots.
