    Reminds me when I first encountered a Utah coal mine dragline. I stood in the bucket which was like a small carpark for a few cars. Then I wandered over to a rear dumper & I was tall enough to reach the rim of a wheel: about 1971/2.

    Espen-Lucas saw in a machine shop. 1919.

    Found this beautiful beast in the catalog at archives.gov. The search function takes a bit of learning, but there are countless excellent images that aren't getting indexed in Google Images search (a perfect example of The Deep Web). I've seen the vintage ads for these, but I didn't know they made one that big. These are the largest resolution images available.

    Certainly a cut above the rest! Wonder if that "Lucas" is same company as the mobile saw milling machine maker.

    How would you like to have to ride back and forth in the Lincoln Holland or Manhattan tunnels all day day in and day out in one of those 24" wide vehicles while trying to keep an eye on traffic offenders? And they say the police are paid too much.
    Never try to tell me it can't be done
