I worked for LeTourneau throughout college and helped build those things. So cool to see one "in the wild"!

About 7 billion people on the planet.

So every hundred million years, seven billion humans might die. Therefore the odds of a single human dying by asteroid per year are at least 7B/100M, or 70 per year...

Fortunately for the actuarial bean counters, they won't have to pay out....

This one was being being put together at the mine. Trapper mine here in Craig is using them to remove over burden in places where the ground is not suited for the big draglines.
Here the working one in the wild!

You should put your plastic covers on your lever guards. If you put a hand through the hole in a fall it would be bad.
