Caterpillar 5230 Ramping Down

1998 Caterpillar 5230 hydraulic front shovel digging down into a shot. Before anyone jumps to criticize the operator or machine's speed, keep in mind the shovel is sitting on a 10% grade; cutting the haul road down into the new shot. Because of this (and also due to the machines age), the shovel is having a hard time building up enough momentum to swing uphill at full speed with a full bucket to load the trucks.
