You wouldn't have carried the flights we used...LOL They were bloody HEAVY!! Chain was about the same size as the old shearer haulage chain too.

We used twin inboard chains on the heavy duty AFC's, in fact everything was heavy duty on those high production 12-14foot high faces, supports were 640 ton yield, now they are 1200 ton yield and weigh in at over 100 tons each!

Shearers weigh over 300 tons each, big at side of the old 16/125's which weighed 10 tons and the AM 400 at 30 tons.
