Pioneer Construction – Heavy Hauling

I few months ago I had the opportunity to photograph some heavy equipment with Pioneer Construction at one of their open pits.

It was a pleasure working with this company and their employees as they all showcased the upmost professionalism and courtesy.



Jumbo Driller

One of my favorite underground heavy equipment machines to photograph is the Jumbo Drill.  From every angle this machine just looks cool.  Instead of Tonka Trucks for kids, they should make Jumbo Drill Toys.
