Nice find Gizzy good to see the comparison, had the chance to sit in a 797 at minexpo this year
you really have to see trucks of this size in the flesh so to speak to appreciate just how big they really are?
Any ideas as to which mine these are at?.... Burton downs maybe?

Yeah Burton Martin. Ive driven the 100 tonne Komatsu 785 and that's a big old lump but that 797 is something else :)

Nice pic.

Seems funny they use 100 ton water trucks when they run 400 ton haulers? Maybe it's just used on the car lot?

Nice pictures. Size comparison is made obvious. But you still need to seat on these monsters to appreciate their power.
