    I am not in this world to live up to your expectations,
    And you are not in this world to live up to mine.
    You are you, and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, it’s beautiful.”
    Now git ta diggin’!

    Didn’t you notice the barrel of that .50 Cal barrel mounted just in front of the cab?
    He could shut down the hydraulics on the big rig in a flash.
    Just speculating. . . .

    Dad, you’re home! Best time I had was running a Cat 992 for a summer. What a beast. And that thing is even bigger.

      I’m guessing it’s a 994K, Zip.
      1739 HP – 534,852 pound operating weight. That’s a Big Boy.
      The little guy might be a 903D, 42 HP – 9414 pounds.

      If I’m correct those are Cat’s biggest and littlest loaders.

    Some of those earth moving machines used in mining operations are huge. There are shovels that pick up 30 cubic yards in each bucket, and fill a dump truck in one shovel full.

    Dug lots of coal with a 92 back when I mined. Cool shit for awhile, gets hard on the knees though.

  8. Big Loader in a deep voice:

    “I am your father!!!!!”

    cue scream of NO and black smoke from the little loader!
