It was donated to the community by Highland Valley Copper. The total payload capacity of the truck was 470,000 pounds or 235 short tons.
The stairs on the shovel lead up to the operator's cab. On the landing of the stairs, there is a door into which used to be the engine and winch room. This room is now used by the Chamber of Commerce for an office. That room itself is estimated to be 10' X 12' (3 m X 3.7 m).
