Small 'Face-Shovel' Type excavator, possiby electrically powered, is that a cable running towards it?

Don't THINK it's an electric cable. THINK that the 'gadget' on the rim just above it is a water pump and the 'cable' is a hose, possibly to drain water away.

This series of three photographs are of the same location. EAW015497 EAW015498 EAW015499 There is an overlap with the same information on each of the three photographs. EAW015500 is probably of the same location but I cannot identify anything positively as being at the same location, apart from a very large hole in the ground!
