Cable

Cable for the Main Hoist on Big Brutus. The main host was operated by eight 500 horsepower, DC electric motors. There is 800 feet of wire rope (cable) on each side. The cable weighs approximately 25 pounds a foot. The main barrel and attached gears weigh a total of ninety-three and one-half tons.

Big Brutus is near West Mineral, Kansas. It is the second largest electric shovel in the world. It is 16 stories tall and weighs 11 million pounds. It was built in 1962 at a cost of $6.5 million by the Bucyrus Erie Company of Milwaukee. It was purchased by the Pittsburg & Midway Coal Mining Company of Pittsburg, Kansas. In 1974 it was silenced. Brutus has been open to tourists since 1985.
