This article is an excerpt from the Earthmovers Magazine. It is about the first Komatsu prime mover for Banks Mining. The family-owned company made an investment in the 265-tonne Komatsu PC3000-6 face shovel. It has started work at the Shotton surface coal site near Cramlinham in Northumberland. Komatsu Mining, both in Germany and the UK, are working hard to help ensure that this PC3000-6 is not the only PC mining excavator that will be purchased by Banks.
