Extending the Lifespan of Hyundai Loader Parts
Have you ever wondered what the many ways you can do to extend the life of your Hyundai loader parts are? Look no further!
In this article, we provide tips and techniques that apply to all-wheel loaders. It may not cover every part specific to your machine as some techniques suggested may be more challenging based on its design.
However, it is best to keep them in mind, and you can be on your way to keeping your machine running for as long as possible.
YES, I have heard of this Band
YES, is a British progressive rock band that formed in 1968. I recognized their song “Roundabout” from the viral “to be continued...” meme, which used to have me in stitches back then (I swear my humour has gotten better with time).
Besides that 2012 meme, the band is known for its complex and intricate music, featuring elements of classical music, jazz, and rock. They are also known for their use of elaborate stage setups and visuals during their live performances.
Despite numerous lineup changes over the years, YES has maintained a reputation as one of the pioneers of the progressive rock genre and continue to perform and record music to this day.

3D Scanning for Underground Mining
New 3D scanning technology that is designed to remove more miners away from high-risk situations, working next to heavy machinery, a 16-kilometre-underground drive from the office controls.
These guys are literally mining coal all the way from the surface!
Within the next few years, this new advanced technology could eliminate the need for operators to work underground in dark and new environments, ultimately preventing serious injuries.
