I used to operate Eimco 21s at the Dome Mine in Timmins,Ontario. I did this till Dome retired the Eimcos and purchases new Copco LM56s,what a change, as the Copcos were spanking brand new! What speed,and no more swinging the bucket manually, as the Copcos swung by using the traction & dump levers to place the bucket where you wanted it.

So are the retired one laying around. I bet I know some folks who would be happy to clean them up.

When we were up in that area in 2008 almost every mine site had no surplus equipment. All the mining dealers sucked everything up.
