Parker Tries to Move Slucifer Using a Dozer | Gold Rush


-HEY, MITCH.
-WHAT’S UP? OH, NOT A WHOLE LOT.
I WAS JUST TRYING TO THINK ABOUT HOW TO MOVE
THIS [BLEEP] PLANT. I MEAN, WITHOUT THE 700, I DON’T KNOW WHAT WE’RE GOING
TO MOVE THIS THING WITH. YOU KNOW, I MEAN,
THE PARTS ARE ON ORDER, SO THEY SHOULD BE HERE
ANY DAY. YEAH, BUT WE’RE IN THE YUKON. “ON ORDER” COULD MEAN A DAY,
IT COULD MEAN A MONTH. YEAH. WHERE’S OUR CHINOOK? [ LAUGHS ] YEAH. WE NEED A CHINOOK
AND ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER. WELL, WHAT ABOUT THE DOZER?
IT’S OUR LAST OPTION, RIGHT? I MEAN, WE’VE NEVER MOVED THIS
THING WITH A DOZER, HAVE WE? IT’LL PULL IT NO PROBLEM, BUT YOU CAN’T WATCH IT
LIKE A HOE. YOU KNOW, AT LEAST WITH
THE EXCAVATOR, EVERYTHING CAN BE
NICE AND CONTROLLED AND YOU CAN GET
A LOT OF LIFT ON IT. BUT, I MEAN, THERE’S REALLY
NOT ANOTHER CHOICE. I DON’T WANT TO DO IT, BUT… -YEAH.
-ALL RIGHT. LET’S JUST START YARDING ON IT. ♪♪ Narrator: PARKER NEEDS
TO MOVE THE PLANT 600 YARDS TO THE NEW PAD ABOVE
THE PAY DIRT HE’LL BE MINING. HE NORMALLY USES
THE 700 EXCAVATOR BECAUSE ITS 45-FOOT BUCKET ARM CAN LIFT THE SKIDS
OF THE 45-TON WASH PLANT. BUT THE D10 HAS NO LIFTING ARM, MEANING IT CAN’T GET THE SAME
LIFT AS THE EXCAVATOR, AND IF IT DRAGS IT
HORIZONTALLY, THE SKIDS WILL
DIG THEMSELVES INTO THE DIRT. ♪♪ WE’RE JUST RIGGING UP THE CABLE
TO THE BACK OF THE DOZER HERE. Narrator: USING THE CABLES,
PARKER IS ATTEMPTING TO TURN THE RIPPER ARM
INTO A LIFTING ARM. Mitch: YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO PULL
IT BACK INTO YOU A LITTLE BIT. Parker: YEAH, WATCH
THE PINCH POINTS HERE. Mitch:
THERE YOU GO. HOLD THERE. CAN YOU GRAB US
A COUPLE OF WRENCHES SO THAT WE CAN
TIGHTEN THIS UP, PLEASE? YEAH. Narrator: MITCH RIGS
THE BIGGEST BOLT HE CAN FIND INTO A SOCKET
ONLY INTENDED FOR MAINTENANCE. I DON’T LIKE, REALLY, ANY PART
OF ALL THIS, BUT IT’S OUR ONLY OPTION,
SO…WE’RE GONNA TRY. WHOO! LET’S DO THIS! Parker: I MEAN,
THIS PLANT WEIGHS A GOOD PROBABLY 100,000 POUNDS,
SO IT’S A LOT OF WEIGHT. ♪♪ Mitch: MY BIG CONCERN IS
JUST THAT RIGGING UP THERE ON THE TOP OF THE RIPPER. IF WE BREAK THAT, EVERYTHING
IS GOING TO COME FLYING APART, AND SOMEBODY MIGHT GET HURT — WHAT WE DON’T WANT
TO HAVE HAPPEN HERE. DO IT. YOU’RE LOOKING GOOD. BRENNAN, WHOA! WHOA! STOP! STOP!

  1. Why don't they order parts in off season and stock them for the inevitable day. I know the equipment changes but even so they could resell it and get their money back on it.

  2. I know you my not read this but thing just my change if you change the name of your south?just saying I've watched you for year and I know like everyone else in this money hungry world you probably care to shit what I say?"But one day you will "I've been there many way then you think mean no disrespect

  3. You could also have used the top of the front blade to lift up, but either way you need to be much closer. Way to far away to lift up. Shorter chains , guys
