My explosives classes were part of the mining department of my university, so I got to see some cool big tools like that. Probably the smallest power tool a miner uses is the jack-leg drill. I ran one a few times in limestone and even that was a terrifying (awesome) experience. A good friend of mine works on a drag line in Texas. I still want to see a drag line or cast blast in person. Anyways..

Cool stuff!
