Abandoned Heavy Dump-Trucks

Hundreds of abandoned heavy dump-trucks, Caterpillar , Komatsu - all the most expensive heavy trucks you can name stay totally without care, rusting on the wind rain and snow. Who can let himself to treat the hardware this way? The answer is "ALROSA". This strange Russian name stands for the one and only diamond mining company in Russia, making 97% gross yield of Russian diamonds, which makes a big part of the world's diamond trade pie.
Sure they can let themselves doing such crazy things as dumping tens and hundreds big trucks and simply ordering new ones after the specified period of use expires. That's New Russian business.

        Can I just say something to Finnish Nazi Hetero Capitalist Milk Drinker Online or as he is also know Texas:

        I’ve been reading your comments for a while now, and as an American I can say that you are not worthy to be part of our freedom loving country.

        You made very hateful comments about people of different nationalities, and America is just not about that.

        I hope ordinary people can see that he is just a minority and that majority of Americans are tolerant and loving people.

    I bet that’s once again something that just originated from the website author’s imagination. Here are some alternative ideas:

    – the mine they used to be working is depleted, and thus there’s no need for these trucks anymore
    – ordering new ones for a mine in, let’s say, Vladivostok, could be cheaper than bringing old ones from a mine in, let’s say, Smolensk, to Vladivostok
    – who would buy old used dump trucks from a remote mine somewhere in Russia for his own mine? All mines have their trucks I guess, and when one is broken down or you open a new mine you rather order a new one than buy old ones from Russia which may break down soon, too.

    Looking at some of your comments makes me wonder why some of you manage to get online, above all.

  6. BigDog says:

    They could simply be worn out, rather than wasted. Engines, transmissions, hydrolics might simply be too old and worn to be worth repairing. This is a ‘boneyard’ where usable parts can be stripped off if needed.

  7. Razvan Nation says:

    Can I have one? Pleaaassee..?

  8. BigDog says:

    Nice dog tho.

  9. Didoka says:

    Isn’t CAT an American company? How would they get into Russia then?

  10. Clement says:

    Mike, nice comment.
    anyway, it shows that we probably know how to build machinery, but we don’t know how to recycle them …

  11. Kazuo says:

    I believe the Russians bring CAT dumpers from the U.S. the same way they bring Komatsu from Japan, e.g. on a big ship.

  13. anonymous says:

    why not put them all on ebay??

    I would make a bid for sure.

    Who doesnt want a big yellow dumptruck ?

  14. H Cook says:

    The problem is they dont know how to fix a flat tire

  15. NateNizzle says:

    One of these would work well for taking the kids to soccer practice.

  16. Ian says:

    This is a little-known fact, but this could also be because the diamond cartel (De Beers) is overloaded with diamonds now. They have to stop mining and hold back billions of diamonds to keep the prices up- and I’m sure they aren’t buying anymore from mines… Could be why these trucks are no longer needed.

  17. Finn says:

    Those trucks are pretty old stuff.

    • Finn says:

      And operating hours can be high, 8000 hour hard work in the year, 10-15 years = and the machine is not a worth to repair.

      OEM parts cost money, a lot of money. 1000e for 980g ladders is robbery…

  26. Peter M. says:

    That makes sense. Add to that, disassembly for transport, rebuilding, storing, repainting, etc, before you can even find a prospective customer for used equipment. I am sure an economical analysis was made prior bone-yarding this equipment.

  27. Michael says:

    Wow, those machines are huge. I know someone who deals in Caterpillar and Komatsu heavy equipment, and that stuff is not cheap.

    No, that’s the mining business. It’s the same world over.

    Resource wasteful profit-before-people business might be relatively new to Russia, but there’s nothing inherently Russian about this practice.
