MILWAUKEE - BUCYRUS INTERNATIONAL reports it has sold a Bucyrus 495HR (Hard Rock) high performance electric rope shovel to THOMPSON CREEK MINING, which mines molybdenum in Idaho.
The 495 series shovel has a proven history of outstanding productivity and the "HR" version incorporates new and innovative technologies that enhance its capabilities. It has a new SuperCab with enhanced operator visibility, comfort and safety. For reliability and ease of maintenance they have a third rail swing system and lowered swing planetaries. Refined design in all structural areas and increased horsepower in key digging motions allow the 495HR to move the largest payloads in its class.
Thompson Creek has ordered its 495HR with AccessDirect remote machine diagnostics with two additional monitoring systems, AccuLoad and Midas. The shovel joins two Bucyrus rotary blasthole drills already working at the mine.
