I was underground to look at this Cat R1300G LHD (load haul dump) mining scoop.
This is one of a few we have to make some Hydraulic modifications to.
Once done they can put this new machine to work.
I have to relocate the ejector hydraulic lines and add a circuit to control the bucket quick attach.
All the design work will be done in my office and we will go back underground to install all the parts and test it.
This view is from the warehouse/new machine storage area.

I keep telling Ed to get low. Here's a perfect example of why.

Beautifully composed Mike, and well carried out in what looks to be a challenging lighting situtuation. Nicely done.

Kind of looks like an indoor parking garage but I'll bet it's not as big as it looks. Can't wait for more from this project.

Damn! You beat me to it. Will go 'underground' (to service those red fire systems on the back of your machines) soon and was going to post one with you in mind - cool machines and all.
Well done. The wide really makes it look spacious. v
