thanks Ron i actually hate this thumb but that's another story.sunscaper the demo stuff here is huge or tiny,that doesn't make sense i know ,but its not steady ,i am really a landscape construction business but this time of year i will take any easy job like this.this was great because i was helping some local people out ,got paid well and had my guys building a big wall down the road,no trucking involved just did the 2.9 mph shuffle down a half mile of road .I know guys here who do a lot of demo but there heavy into excavation cat 322 excavators peterbuilts ,and the rest is so small its more trouble than its worth.it is a lot of fun bringing stuff to the ground.have more pics if you want.

How do you know if there is asbestos? I have passed on a few demo jobs because the siding looked like asbestos.

There's also Vermiculite insulation to look out for too, very bad stuff to get into your lungs, best to get a fire hose to wet everything down as the building comes down.

Crab........that's a 160 link belt? 30,000 lb machine i believe.......Could you do that demo work with a smaller machine and still be efficient and safe?

I believe that's only an 8 ton, I think it's a 1600. It only has one boom cylinder.

That 1600 LB or CASE 9007B is a very good machine. I very nearly bought one prior to my first TK. Here is a bit of news. JD is building a 75 sized swing boom excavator like TK Side to Side boom on it its TB***FR machines. I was wondering when someone would pick up on that idea. Should be at ConExpo I was told yesterday.

Looks fun, especially if you didn't have to load all that into a truck.
