yeah its pushing old backfil from when the sit was opencastered years ago with old draglines we find lots of old wire rope and 2 weeks ago we found a old pick axe that was dozed up with over old bits of workings



It cracks me up to see the overheight spill guards that are dealer manufactured and look like dog$hit compared to the factory jobby, it,s bad enough that the salesman did not order the machine with it let alone the interpretation from the workorder to the final product not even resembling original spec. You can blatently see the difference in a couple of the pics in this series and i have seen where i work them do exactly the same, maybe attention to detail and care factor is higher for me than some but gee the problem with that would be??

Its cheaper to manufacture spill guard than pay Cat price, same use to go for the blade skin. Also, when ordering machines you get them quicker if you are ordering std spec machines, (blade skin and trash rack are not std equipment, at least not for the EAME market) with demand so high for D9T's in the UK dealership was talking whatever it could get its hands on regardless of spec.

Hello Stuart,
How come that UK Coal dont have any top roller on their tractors, is it just the cost?
Wouldnt it save some wear on the chains?

Cheers, Peter
