About: Inside a Lima 2400B
Fantastic video. I started working on an Opencast Coal site in 1972 as a 16 year old Apprentice Plant Fitter learning and repairing these great draglines. We called them Navvies in Britain.
Nice work Thanks
I love the old draglines. Walking and crawler. Grew up surrounded by walkers here in north east England
I'd say the swinger pinion is not long for this world. lol with as much slop that's in it bound to shear off before to long.
I worked as a banksman on a 2400 lima back in the summer 1981 the driver used to send me mushrooming in the surrounding fields for his breakfast happy memories
Hi pa. Oiled on a 2400 for a couple years. Great machine, except of visibility of the fair leads. Doesn't, sit as good as a 4600.
Always had a fascination for watching drag-lines working. Thanks much.
seems like there would be a better way to dig than with these being as they are so slow but i guess getting and excavator and trucks would require you to remove much more overburden. makes sense.
I ran one (2400) at the Grand Coulee Dam.1970-71. I have run many different kinds, but that is by far the best. A brand new 20cyd Marion is hard to beat also. I subscribed. Thank you.
them old draglines look like they would be fun to run,but i dont know im more of a scraper guy
Lol, you need to look through all my videos! Thanks
Justin, I just found this video ! Wow, in the cab of one of the best drag-lines ever built. Made my day. Excellent video !
What kind of engine did they use in those old beasts? Sounds like something with a really low rpm.
Thanks! Not at the moment. I like to do a different kind of video each time to make it more interesting for my viewers
Love this! Got any more of in the cab of 2400's?
Haha, thanks! Yes he does
that operator sure knows his stuff yaaaaaaaaaaaa
