That bucket looks a little one sided. I'm sure it's the angle of the picture. That's not you being frisked is it Ken? CAW

I'm a kid at heart, so I will play with any model construction vehicle from 1:87 scale to 1:1 scale!!!!

Age is a state of time NOT a state of mind!!

That's the angle of the picture on the road. No, that was the truck driver.

Ken great pictures of the trucks and equipment. Now the question is which seat did you prefer the higher one or the lower one? I was also going to ask if the man being frisked was that senior citizen from NC because I heard he likes getting frisked for no apparent reason.

Love the photos thanks for sharing. I echo Claus' statement didn't realize you ran escort as long as you did. I honestly thought you did it for a year or two only.

Easy answer

It is the bucket of a Bucyrus 495 Miningshovel.

If that thing tipped, the whole truck goes. Those Australian trailers would carry that one better. That's a great picture. I could dig my spring garden with one scoop. CAW

Ken thanks for the response, that bucket is huge did you ever haul one of those while in the higher seat. As far as the old man from NC, your correct they did not have those trucks around in the 1800’s, my bad.
