Imagine walking those puppies down the road and into the arena. They gotta use mats or some floor protection as not to bust up the concrete.

Thanks for posting.

I saw that girl standing in the bucket of the PC5500 - clever bit of marketing getting all the guys to ahve their photos taken with her I suppose.

Awesome pics, Tim!

How does the floor structure support that much weight?

Well one of the head dudes at the Climax mine told me it was as we were standing on the shovel. Maby they are getting a 5500 and not that exact one or maby the smaller one is going to PBS Coal.

That makes sense. Climax gets the big one and the small one goes to PA.
