Impressive! Masterpiece! Fantastic!

These are just some of the words used to describe this incredible model, that is finally official TODAY at the HCEA International Convention in Bowling Green, Ohio (my home state)! There have been no shortage of rumors about the P&H 4100XPC Mining Shovel since it was first discussed at MINEXPO2008. Now we get to share the joy with you as you see this for the very first time!
In today's maining operations around the world, only the largest, most productive shovels will do. Within this class of mining shovels stands the 4100XPC built by P&H Mining Equipment... which is celebrating its 125th year old operation in 2009... The 4100 series of shovels have been some of the most prodictive mining excavators ever built.
