Big Muskie Strip Mining Shovel - By Perry Taggart

Perry Taggart built this diorama that covers a 44" x 80" table. The scene depicts "Big Muskie," the enormous coal strip mining shovel and an International TD-25 on the upper bench with a P&H 2800 loading a Komatsu HD320 haul truck. Perry modified a Caterpillar 627 scraper into a water wagon and a Caterpillar 12G grader as support equipment. Also shown is an International 560 Pay Loader being loaded with coal.
