    Well you can fit 3 large school buses abreast in the bucket.
    It has feet to “walk” it across the earth, and only needs 1 person to operate it. It is about 5400 tones, the boom is about 110 meters long and around 75 meters in the air.
    Big Lou uncovers about 2 1/2 million metric tonnes of coal each year.
