About: P&H 4100 XPB Electric Shovel Loading Liebherr And Caterpillar Haul Trucks Ray Mine, Arizona 6-13-12
shovel is smooth and trucks wait there positioning by the operator ...
Thank god it’s not a transformer
Awesome video. I worked shovel and drill at Mission. Brings back memories.
That operator must play a musical instrument. What smooth performance.
Does it have a diesel generator to recharge its batteries?
remarkable power behind these machines! I'm no expert in mining shovels, so what makes power shovels more suitable for certain applications then hydraulic shovels? Is it because they have a bigger capacity or something? They just look like they're much more to handle...
why aren't your trucks self spotting
Looking at some other mining videos, the Liebherr r9800 loads these trucks a lot faster, even though it's half the weight of this monster. What gives?
You said that the gravity just pulls the door open. But there is some kind of a control or something like a button in the operator cab to open up the bucket door for unloading the material?
magnifique !!! un vrai régal merci
how do the buckets open and close with just a bit of chain and rope?
how much do one of these cost
dam he is loading bug dust
And really appreciate the upload, thank you so much.
Slooooow those truckers need some flags on the counterweight or something the second truck should have been in there spotted and waiting
Hes got the truks spoted way to far away from the shovel taken way to long to load them
es el mejor con motor MTU 20v
I really can't say. I only see the mine from this view, and that is only maybe once every year or two. I don't know if the shovel can be cycled any faster, but the trucks showing up at the shovel weren't a constant stream that day. Could be for any number of reasons that I'm not aware of. I have seen in the past 4 or 5 trucks lined up at each shovel and some real dirt being moved.
there appears to be a fair amount of money thrown out the window with those trucks just sitting there waiting so long to be loaded. Maybe this was just an off moment?
