    Just seeing that 785 upside down in the garage forum, Left me wondering, who likes truly big stuff? i have a pic of The silver spade, a 7,000 ton stripping shovel used to uncover coal seams near cadiz ohio. It can pick up around 250 ton (115) per bucket. It is crossing a county rd to get to a new mine location. Note the pickup on the road in front of it.

    I did a search on the thing. Apparently the day that they moved it, the power company was down for maintenance, so they were able to take the lines down long enough to get through. If you go to http://www.stripmine.org, you can see where another one of these things crossed an interstate by burying it under 30 feet of earth.

    I've seen something on Discovery or TLC on that thing. It is one hell of an operation.

    Very Cool,

    Actually, tRusty, it probably isn't. The tall woman is about 6'5", and the smaller woman is like 5'1". Go to www.snopes.com and look up "tallest woman". They have several other pics of her, as well as this one, which they say is likely not chopped, just carefully arranged.
