Here's some pictures of my most recent visit to Blaschak's Logan surface mine, located in Centralia. My one friend runs their Demag down here so I usually go down once a month to visit.

Here's a view looking down into the pit from up top.

The production fleet consists of a 1991 DEMAG H185S Backhoe (shown here having its bucket greased), and eight Cat 777 haul trucks.
