It can get a D8 dozer in one of its buckets!

on an escalade note - my buddy got a new ESV fully loaded and finally! - GM made a proper truck! Not much bad to say. I will add it to my list of like a dozen cars I have to write a review for.

Yeah don't they do 0-60 in 6.4 seconds? At least I read that in car and driver recently, very impressive for a full size.

I think the ESV will probably be a bit higher, but the stocker is right around there. Just wait until the new V series comes out :faint:

These pics were working a minute ago, but stopped - could just be my computer - so I'll leave them up if so.

Its rumored this the LSA, which had been posted here under another assumption - http://www.supraforums.com/forum/showthread.php?t=373898&highlight=escalade

It seems the LS9 will have to follow a different lay out to fit in the Vette (Stinrgray or Blue Devil)

I've seen that on the History Channel. The company that uses these machines have actually bought whole towns to get the coal underneath. You would think there would be huge projects like this outside of maybe China, however our quest for energy is insatiable.
