I run a Manitowoc 4600 with a 140 ft boom and a 6 yard bucket near Ann Arbor. When I use used 1 1/8 cable that came off the mast, I usually get 3 months out of my dump cable. When I run out and switch to 1" new cable, it lasts about 6 weeks. All of my digging is in the water. I also grease the dump sheave twice a day and usually will get a year or so out of the bearings.

That is about what I'm getting out of my trip cable so I guess that is about right. I am working a pit just west of Allendale Mi. I am greasing the dump sheave everyday.

Sorry about the double post. I am using my phone and thought that it didn"t send the first post. I have only been around the 4600, so I am not sure how it stacks up compared to other machines. I"ve only worked at one pit and only been in the seat for about 7 years.
