    Alaska Range Miner reacted to John Oates in Wash plant for mini excavator   
    No one is perfect and BIG boulders do get by and ruin equipment,seen it 1,000s a times. In Carson City behind the airport off conestoga is/was a huge trommel builder who I visited regularly as ran a plant periodically 2 doors down. He was constantly repairing abused equipment from running too big a boulders through them. The direct proportional ratio of weight/size in conjunction with the of rate of spin magnifies the g forces expotentionally smashing into the barrel agitators. This effect is EXACTLY akin to hitting a wall at 5 mph in a vw vs a mack truck.All the ops on ak show killed washplants that a way or was that staged too hahaha yep never happens-John
