Luminant’s cross pit spreader system featured in Discovery Channel Show tonight at 9p and midnight (CDT)

Luminant’s Winfield South Mine in Titus County is featured on tonight’s episode of the Discovery Channel series “What a Tool.”

The series profiles massive machines across the country, including the mine’s cross pit spreader system, which stands as tall as a 24-story building, is as long as roughly four football fields and weighs as much as 10 747 commercial airplanes.

“I think viewers are going to be truly amazed at the size of the machinery used to mine lignite for power generation,” said Del McCabe, mine director. “It’s an efficient and impressive operation and one we’re proud to showcase.”
