Stroj italijanske izdelave Eimco je omogočil hitrejše nakladanje vedno večjih količin odkopane rude. Deloval je s pomočjo stisnjenega zraka in se je premikal po tirih. Služil je za nakladanje jamskih vozičkov. S strojem je lahko upravljal le za-to usposobljen rudar, ki je stal na prirejeni polički montirani ob sam stroj. Prek avtomatskega vzvoda je upravljal lopato, z njo zajel rudo in jo prek stroja vrgel na voziček, ki je napolnjen tehtal okoli 800 kg. Poln voziček je rudar porinil do vrtljive plošče in ga obrnil v želeno smer.

The heritage of Idrija inscribed on UNESCO`s World Heritage List comprises the heritage of the mine and mining activities in the broadest sense of the world: the mercury ore deposit, underground shafts and galleries, mine entrance buildings, administrative buildings, smelting plant, mercury and wheat storehouses, residental houses, school buildings, churches, and the paths along which mercury was transported abroad.
