About: Eimco 915 Scooptram - Underground Mining Equipment

Thank-you for watching. We have a lot of older mining and milling equipment that we refurbish at our yard in Savona BC Canada.
Thanks for posting this, I didn't think there were any left running. My first mining job in the late 1970's was driving a stripped down 915 with scrubbers and flame traps 3,600 feet underground in a mine in the UK . I don't miss the heat, dust and diesel exhaust fumes!
