Bucyrus Erie 3850-B Power Shovel (Peabody Coal Co. - Sinclair Surface Mine) "Big Hog"
 
10:01
Peabody Coal Company ordered this machine for one purpose and one purpose only, the Tennessee Valley Authority. It was built to supply the (at the time) brand new TVA Paradise Fossil Plant and its 3 MASSIVE coal hungry units. TVA and Paradise Fossil Plant still buy Muhlenberg County coal and Peabody coal to this day! This video just shows the old girl going through some simple cycles in the pit. You do catch a few views of some pit activity and stuff as well! Enjoy. Some interesting facts about this machine my Grandfather & Aunt used to work on: -Boom Length: 215 feet -Overall Height: 220 feet -Bucket Capacity: 115 cubic yards -Crawler Size: 40 ft. long by 7.6 ft. wide -Crawler Height: 10 feet -Overall Weight: 22 Million lbs. -Date Started: 1962 -Date Retired:1987 (roughly) -Location: Outside Central City/Drakesboro in Muhlenberg County, Kentucky (Western Kentucky) **When this shovel was built, it was easily considered the "World's Largest Machine/Shovel" ever built. It held that title for a relatively short time though unfortunately. This machine was left somewhat intact, but higher portions were cut off of it when it walked into a hole that it dug for itself. After everything was trimmed off, the Sinclair BE 1260-W Dragline filled the dirt in around the machine and it was literally buried close to the TVA power plant on Peabody Property. That property is now owned by the US Government and trespassing is strictly forbidden. To this day, the legendary "Big Hog" still resides under a deep number of feet of dirt in Muhlenberg County. The Big Hog was featured in an article in the January 1963 "Science and Mechanics" Magazine. An artistic rendering of this machine graced that issues cover. I'll never forget seeing this machine parked in its own grave that it dug, just waiting for the dirt and cutters torch. I had a grandfather and an aunt that worked around and on this shovel during its life. It will always be part of my family just like the Marion 5960 Shovel across the county at River Queen Mine!

Bucyrus (CAT) Factory Tour & Museum Milwaukee - Home of Big Muskie & XXL 495 Rope Shovels  - 1080p
 
05:14
Factory Tour to the CAT Mininig Factory & Museum in Milwaukee. Bucyrus or formerly Bucyrus-Erie (now Caterpillar / CAT Mining) was one of the biggest Manufacturer for Rope Shovels and Mining Equipment. We take you behind doors of the Bucyrus Factory in Milwaukee, USA and give some insights to the factory where the huge Bucyrus 495HR Rope Shovels are build. Further more we take a visit to the Bucyrus Museum. The Documentary also features the Bucyrus (now CAT) Museum. The Caterpillar Mining Museum has some very neat artifacts of the Bucyrus-Erie History of Shovels on display. Manager of the Museum is Robert Woit who guides us through the Museum and shows us "Yellow Iron" Legends like the famous Big Muskie, the biggest rope shovel of all times. But since the history of Bucyrus-Erie goes much further back into time, they show things from the early days like an original serial numer plate of a Shovel from 1907 that was used during construction of the Panama Canal. During Interviews with Bucyrus CEO Luis De Leon and Vice President Joe Helfrich, we learned more about the History, the Production and the Strategy of Bucyrus Mining Equipment. After Bucyrus aqcuired Terex Mining, Bucyrus was aqcuired by Caterpillar, later in 2011. Now the Bucyrus Shovels and Hydraulic Excavators like the mentioned RH 400 are distributed under the Caterpillar Brand like the Bucyrus 495HR that became the CAT 495HR.

World's Largest Mining Shovel - The Silver Spade
 
03:56
The Silver Spade was a giant power shovel used for strip mining in southeastern Ohio. Manufactured by Bucyrus-Erie, South Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the model 1950-B was one of two of this model built, the other being the GEM of Egypt. Its sole function was to remove the earth and rock overburden from the coal seam. Attempts to purchase and preserve the shovel from Consol for $2.6 million fell short, and the shovel was scrapped in February 2007.

The World's Largest Electric Shovel (Big Brutus)
 
03:15
The Bucyrus Erie model 1850B while not the largest shovel ever produced is the largest remaining. It weighs 5500 tons or 11 million pounds and has a bucket capacity of 90 cubic yards or 150 tons. Big Brutus is 160 feet in height and took 52 men 11 months to assemble in 1962 after having been brought to Hallowell, Kansas in 52 railroad cars. Although Brutus was designed for a 25 year lifespan, only 10 years were achieved, not due to the reliability of the 1850B, but due to market forces, namely cheap low sulphur coal from Wyoming and Montana. Powering it's huge electric 15,000 hp motors was no joke. In the it's last month of operation in 1974 Big Brutus used $27,000 of electricity, $137,000 adjusted for inflation. It's been calculated that if Big Brutus had worked in a straight line it would have dug a pit that would have been 120 feet wide and 40 to 50 feet deep from Hallowell, Kansas, to Fort Worth, Texas, thats 368 miles!

Steaming Across Panama: Bucyrus and the Digging of the Panama Canal
 
07:57
The Panama Canal is a 48 mile (77.1 kilometre) ship canal that connects the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean. August 15, 2014, marked the 100th anniversary of its opening, and in 2016 a 9-year expansion project was completed. Join us for a look back at the major role Bucyrus played in the construction of the Panama Canal. The Isthmain Canal Commission for the Panama Canal construction project awarded their first steam shovel bid to Bucyrus (Caterpillar Inc. acquired Bucyrus International, Inc. on July 8, 2011) Ultimately, Bucyrus would be called upon to provide 70% of the equipment used to dig the canal. In the years since its construction, several projects have helped to widen and expand the Panama Canal. Cat and Bucyrus products have been involved in the construction and expansion of the canal throughout its history, making progress possible.

Bucyrus 50-B Steam Shovel
 
07:38
The last remaining of the giant steam shovels to work around the Panama Canal is given a workout at the Nederland, Colorado, mining museum Heritage Days, September 27, 2009. Donations needed to restore the Bucyrus ! http://www.nederlandmuseums.org/bucyrus.html " The only Bucyrus model 50-B still existing, this 1923 steam shovel weighs 130,000 pounds and is rated at 75 tons. 534 Bucyrus and Bucyrus-Erie 50-B shovels were built between 1923 and 1939. They were among the largest tracked steam shovels in the world at that time. Until 1932, most were steam powered and moved on railroad tracks. In 1923, crawler tracks were added to the 50-B model, creating the first heavy duty, 360-degree rotation mobile shovels. "This shovel, with 24 others, was sent to the Panama Canal to build bridges, roads, and drains and remove the massive amounts of dirt and rock cut from the canal bed. All the shovels but one were scrapped at Panama. The survivor was shipped back to California and then brought to Denver. In the early 1950s it was transported to Rollinsville by Roy and Russell Durand, who operated it at the Lump Gulch Placer, six miles south of Nederland, until 1978."

Bucyrus-Erie 50-B Steam Shovel - Sept. 2000 - Part 1
 
25:50
This is the 50-B that is now at Rollag. The shovel had been thoroughly overhauled by its previous owner, but then the old operator retired. None of the younger operators wanted to mess with it, so it sat for many years until Belleview Sand & Gravel bought it and brought it back to life. Contrary to the title on the video, this was apparently not the first operation. Also seen is Belleview's rare Linn halftrack dump truck. The first half of Part 1 is shot from the ground, the second half is onboard. It's a brutal machine. Part 2 is entirely onboard, and there may be a Part 3, after the next tape is converted. Controls are more or less to Bucyrus-Erie standard. Swing on the left, pulled or pushed in the direction of swing, crowd in the center. You can see the linkage to the crowd engine on the boom. Hoist is from the ceiling, and is a 4-way lever. Forward is hoist, back lowers the bucket on air compression, ie a Jake Brake. Moving the lever to the side declutches the hoist for fast gravity lowering. It travels on the hoist. Since compressing air is useless for propulsion, there is a secondary control lever that allows powering in either direction. Steering is done by a ground man levering dog clutches on the sprocket shafts in and out. Controls appear to be very light, as all levers are just throttles controlling the 3 independent motion engines. Thus it shouldn't be too tiring to run, except for the vibration. This was an open house, not an HCEA convention, as that was held in Seward, Nebraska in 2000. We were at the great 1994 convention at Belleview, and probably have some Hi-8 video from it. My recollection is that at the 1994 HCEA convention, this 50-B was a static display near the shop, with the bucket chained in the air. Great to see that they got it going. This video was shot with a Sony Handycam in Digital 8. This format used 2 hour Hi-8 analog videotapes, running at 2x speed, to produce high quality 1 hour digital video. It was a revolutionary format at the time, and was used extensively by news media for field news gathering, such as in Iraq. A bit of image quality is lost in the MS moviemaker editor, losing some of the striking immediacy of the format. Note that it is interlaced, and sized for broadcast televisions of the time. This is the first video from a large box full of 75(!) of these 1 hour tapes, that WurliTzer153Duplex is gradually converting via FireWire. These were shot by both of us, with several cameras, and it's interesting to figure out who did what. There is some cool stuff in there. #569 Belleview Sand & Gravel, Petersburg, Ky September 2000 Sony Handycam Digital 8 20000923d 50 B Part1

Bucyrus-Erie 2570W Drag Line On The Move Near Shelburn Indiana
 
02:59
This video was shot by a local TV station videographer. The drag line, a Bucyrus-Erie 2570W, named Old Glory is on its way from the Farmersburg Mine to Bear Run Mine near Dugger, Indiana. The 18 mile walk is expected to take a least a month since the dragline 'walks' at a blazing speed of 1/10 mile per hour. Old Glory is owned by Peabody Energy of Saint Louis, Missouri. At 13-million pounds(5897 metric tons), the 2570W weighs more than 150 Boeing 737-700 jetliners. It is 220-feet high (67 meters) and swings a 335-foot boom (102 meters) with a maximum operating radius of 300 feet (91.4 meters), the length of an American Football field. This boom carries a 115-cubic-yard (88 cubic meters) bucket capable of moving a 335,000 pound (152 metric tons) payload. The machine sits on a tub spanning 80 feet (24 meters) in diameter and walks with two "shoes" measuring 72 feet (22 meters) in length by 14 feet (4.2 Meters) in width. The size is necessary to lift and advance the dragline's massive frame. This video was shot as the huge electrically operated machine crosses Indiana Highway 48 just east of Shelburn Indiana.

One is the giant I think 600 ton lowboy that's still here. Cat 24 and 16 graders and a bunch of cat D10, D11, and Komatsu 375's for dozers. All these machines used to call this place home.

10 minutes of video from a video made by one of the miners at the mine that is over 1 hour long. John Prine sang about this mine in the song "Paradise" and the shovel that worked there. At the time, it was the World's Largest Shovel, but was only that for a couple of years after it's construction. This mine served as a mine mouth for the TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) Paradise Fossil Plant next door. It was all located outside Central City, Kentucky in Muhlenberg County along the Green River of Western Kentucky. At one time, no place in the world produced more coal than Muhlenberg County but those days are long gone. This was one of two world record holding shovels located in the county at the time this video was shot (early 1980's). The largest shovel on here is the Bucyrus Erie 3850-B and is the shovel that was famously buried after finishing its work at this mine. I had a Grandfather and an Aunt that worked at this mine and retired from there. My aunt actually ran the large BE 3850-B shovel from time to time. The bucket on the 3850-B is 115 cubic yards in size. Big enough for two pickup trucks to park in easily with room to move around them! This was the original home of the giants in coal mining!!! Welcome to Muhlenberg County, my home!
