sorry if i missed it in a previous post, what do you call a buggy a shuttle car? here in the anthracite a buggy is one of the following...... mine car, mine motor, shuttle car, scoop, wheelbarrow, or gunboat, which can also be called a barrel or bucket or pail. :lol: the heister at our mine likes it when i say, we're in the bucket take us outside! :wink:

Just like Banks said, Buggy is a Shuttle car, And if you are on the miner you are on the "Box" and if you are the miner utility, you are "THE B&*%H" :D

A Gunboat is strictly on a slope nothing more,nothing less. A Buggy runs on the gangway, simple enough?

Well if you want to split hairs I guess you could a Gunboat a Buggie but the correct term for Haulage equipment that runs on Skids up and down a slope is a Gunboat.

"Bucket" ? You can take that one up with Hoss or John. You won't stand a chance in that argument!

Nay Oh Great One!

We're not sure you understand the term.

Bucket: n. Large box structure with cables attached.

Large: adj. See Figure 1


Image



Large is large enough to put Banks, Mike and their trucks in.
