Trip to Hudson Breaker

Duengeon Master and I drove up to the Hudson Anthracite Breaker today. Had to get some Nut. Nice little road trip, the weather cooperated. I got about 2 minutes of video while there. It only took the loader about 2 seconds to fill the truck....

He used to just about fill my 5 ton lift with same loader. If the truck box was as wide as the scoop he could easily fill it.

Nice piece of video. We all like the movies. I can see from the size of that loader,one false move on that set of levers and you would be replacing two blowouts!!!! Yikes. How much/ton are they charging now at Hudson? Mike

Makes sense to me, anyone who has been to a coal breaker knows there is never any excess coal laying around anywhere... :o

You would be surprised How many owners & operators in the coal industry don't burn coal for heating in there homes or
businesses Nothing new . I guess some feel being they work with it 6 days a week they don't want to mess with it when
they come home from a 8 to 12 hr day .

He definately knew how to operate the bucket. :up: I was amazed at the size of it, and how close he could get it to Duengeon master's truck. He knew exactly how much to put in it.

Then there's that little breaker where the pipe runs right from one of the bins to the Losch.

I'll bet that oil burner was using waste motor oil and other junk from the equipment. Very common in the construction business.
