Looks like a rock drill used for mining to me. Rehose, seems to be slang for some type of preventative maintenance. Or maybe unscheduled maintenance.
But the picture seems to be from the operators position, so, a "shot across the bow" So to speak. I think it's awesome that Jimmy shares what he does. Fascinating what goes on in other countries.

We call them a Jumbo. It's getting a birthday, all new hydraulic hoses and assorted control wiring.
They want to commission it on todays day shift so I've come in on a extra night shift to get it done.

Snake River Tow! Nearly half way to Hells Canyon, several white water stretches, we lost the engine. Run'n rapids with a 10hp kicker was! :eek

After a couple hours, this Idaho Power, (twin big block pumped) gave us a tow! ...For another couple hours! :)



Just thought it was time for a little Heavy Metal in this thread! ;)
