Thank you, Jeremy. Indeed Rope shovels are the pearl in my collection. I have a problem with Bucyrus 495HF model /entangled rope hoist/ but fixed it relatively easy. I opened the roof /there are 9 plastic caps which covers the screws. Then bought a longer rope /same blue colour/. The original rope is shorter and the bucket does not reach the ground. A friend of mine /jeweler/ helped me to remove the caps. The orginal plasctic caps could be easily destroyed during the process of removal of the lid. He made 10 silver /1 reserve/ caps and I painted in Bucyrus white, so there are no difference with the orginal model. The bucket is leveled and I'm very happy with this version of Bucyrus.
