Ahhh the Belaz 75710. Looks like someone got drunk and crashed 9 Payhauler 350’s together!

Are you an enviromentist, or do you work for a living?

Ha Ha, I'm not convinced that I would like to drive that thing empty downhill and have an emergency braking situation!

Fantastic! Got any photos of the white Demag H485 in the background? That would be much appreciated!

Jamie,

I explored the first half of the original post in the French forum to make sure that I didn't miss any picture and I have to admit that the Demag H485, you mention, is not shown anywhere: strange!
A suggestion for Denis in terms of future scenes?

Cheers.

Loading of the "beast" begins with some LorraMine Management on site to witness Belaz dumper capabilities:

The dumper soon leaves the quarry face with its 450 tonnes load:





At the crusher unloading zone, the huge dumper maneuvers to get its load off:





To be continued (next time).

Next time, I'll post the last series of pictures (for the time being, I hope) showing the new installation built by Michel to load explosives on its delivery truck.
I have exhausted the French forum LorraMine topic content and everything shown on "Photos de TP" has been re posted here.

Denis, who retired some time ago but is still busy helping his son to run his construction company, suffered recently a serious accident while on a site: he is now recovering at home but unable to progress LorraMine diorama scenes.
Let's hope that he will fully recover soon and will continue with his astonishing pictures.

Regards.
Guy

Guy: Please give Dennis our best wishes for a speedy recovery. We will be lost without these pictures. That big hauler is absurdly cool. Craig

Guy please extend my thoughts and prayers to Denis and his family, and God speed on a healthy recovery. These pictures of LorraMine have become a daily ritual.
Guy again I appreciate you taking your own time to bring this outrageous post to the forum for all of us here to enjoy, along with your own incredibly informative post and pictures of all types of vehicles from your neck of the woods, you are a fountain of knowledge in this arena.
Thank you very much

Gents,

Many thanks for your positive support: I'll pass your wishes to Denis.

Today, we attend a loading operation at the new explosives loading bay, recently delivered by Michel:

Gents,

I had an update from him some time ago: he had to go back to the hospital for some complication, as a result of his former operation, but this has been positively solved since.
He is recovering at home and regularly visits the French forum, but he hasn't posted any new "LorraMine" picture so far.
I'll keep you updated when I get more news from him.
