Burned Rear Dumper

What you smell here is the smell of money burning. Due to the high-pressure hydraulic lines on most mining equipment, fires are not totally uncommon (particularly when the hydraulic oil sprays onto a hot turbocharger), but the fire suppression systems usually put them out with only minimal damage. This burned-out rear dumper demonstrates that those systems don't always work.

It's only Liebherr, so it's not a big loss!
