6900XD. There are two of them here in the steel plant. But they have big coal boxes on them.

Those come with tier 3 Detroit 60 Series in them.

   that was good thinking  :D  ,Being a 2014 they must have had a hard time selling it,and the way the economy and the mining is right now I can't see them selling it in a long time.

Yeah I think I'd need a fork lift to get me up & down to the cab.......otherwise a 20 minute break would be necessary to get my wind back. ;D

Wish I had a job for one. I'd rather drive that off road, than mine on road.

I like brochure for that Tier 3 Series 60 on the Star web site. I like how it states it is more economical, reliable and uses less fuel than EPA 07/10 engines, LOL.

Would that Unit have been brought down from one of the Mines in BC this side of the Rockies ??
