Why “Gold Rush: Dave Turin’s Lost Mine” Chooses Stellar
In 1848, the discovery of gold nuggets in California sparked an epic Gold Rush that shaped American history. A thrilling quest for the precious metal continues today — and Stellar equipment is an important part of it.
Mechanic Nathan Clark runs a Stellar Mechanic Truck on ”Gold Rush: Dave Turin’s Lost Mine,” a Discovery Channel show where hard-working gold miners risk their lives for a chance at striking it rich. The operation’s fleet also includes a Stellar Fuel Trailer and T-Boom Crane.
Why do Clark and star Dave Turin (also known as “Dozer Dave”) count on Stellar field service equipment to keep their high-profile mission running in harsh mining conditions? Watch the video or read the video transcript below to find out.
‘Great Products, Good People, Good Support’
NATHAN CLARK: Stellar’s got great products, built here in America, good product, good people, good support.
DAVE TURIN: What I’ve always noticed about Stellar is everything’s beefy. Great welding, I mean, great workmanship. And they don’t cut corners. There’s nothing cheap on it. I mean you look at the back of these, it’s all good, solid steel. And it’s thick. And that’s the thing that I love about them.
Versatility and Performance
DAVE TURIN: So we have, actually, three different products with Stellar. Nate has his big service truck (a TMAX™ 2-11 Aluminum Mechanic Truck with a 12621 Hydraulic Service Crane and 65R Rotary Screw Air Compressor). When you have a nice crane on a truck like this, it adds so much to when you’re working on stuff. It’s versatile. You know, you can do things like he could pick up a barrel, or he could pick up a transmission.
This last year, I converted an F-550 truck into our welding truck (with a TC38 Series T-Boom Crane). And here lately, we got a FuelMate® (Multi-Tank Fuel Trailer) which we haul fuel with because where we’re mining in Alaska, it’s a long ways to get our fuel. It’s been working great. That thing is awesome.
NATHAN CLARK: It really helps us to keep on gold mining. Without some of the Stellar stuff, we wouldn’t get the gold we get today.
