The quality isn't as good as I would have liked and the file is huge ( 22 Meg ) but it will give you an idea.

Notice the tiny bulldozer to the right of the draglline.

Big Kate is a Bucyrus-Erie 2570W. The model was introduced in 1972 and I know this machine had been is service for a few years in 1980. It was originally built for Old Ben Coal Company No 2 Mine at Spurgeon Indiana and is now working for Black Beauty at the Sommerville South Mine.

The typical bucket on these machines was 115 cu, yds, with a boom length of 335 feet.
