Eimco Model 21 Rocker Shovel "Mucker" Page 2

2/10/08 It Lives!! After approximately 2 hours of work to the mucker and getting the diesel compressor to start in the cold, we got our mucker operational at the No.9 mine! Special thanks to the guys at No.9 and the Ohio guys for transporting it for us. We are still awaiting the arrival of our newly built cables for it so we couldnt run the bucket however we were able to run it back and forth under its own power. There was a pretty good size hole in the air line so it moved slowly but after sitting outside for years and buying it in unknown condition we made out pretty well!
