I love the old Cat excavators, they just run forever. The 375's are fairly uncommon as they didn't produce them into the B series, seeing one is pretty cool. That 1250 is awesome for sure, haven't seen a hoe that big up close.

I will say that that box no longer looks like that, as of today it was a completely different setup that was more safe looking. Box was all the way to the top if the hole, more bracing and ladders.

Yes, but there are a lot of people who say they run a business operating heavy equipment when their "big truck" has only one rear axle.

In my mind that's landscaping work if you don't have at least a tandem axle truck, but different strokes for different folks I suppose.

Big excavators to me are up in the 60-70 ton category. Don't get me wrong, the 400 that I run here and there is big, but not huge by any means. Been in a 750, played with a 600 a little bit, but really only operated as large as a 400.

I'm undecided about Komatsu right now. I wish I could run a newer series, I've only run the dash 6's and even the newest dash 6's are 8 years old now, I believe dash 7's were released in 2000. I know the dash 6's need more crowd force, across the board. The PC200 and PC400 that I run at work are both a little short on dragging power when things get tough, even with twin tigers and narrow buckets. I'd like to run a dash 7, we have one dash 7 400 on the job right now, but I haven't had a chance to give her a whirl.

Deere makes a good hoe, I prefer Hitachi just for the Isuzu diesels. I was on a Deere 450CLC for about 10 minutes a little over a month ago, impressive machine, well balanced and a lot of grunt.

Gravel Rat
09-16-2008, 01:53 AM
Large excavators ie larger than 450 Hitachi/Deere are rarely used in construction because they cost too much to operate and move.

What was it last year maybe 2 years ago Terra Tech now Coneco sold Kewit a 1250 Komatsu excavator it was the largest machine sold in B.C. in decades.

That's because you guys don't run any deep sewer or anything up there with all the rock. For 35 foot deep sewer, you need at least a 60 ton, if not 80 ton hoe to stretch to the bottom.

I am way hot over that 210 X2. There is a lot of talk around here over this machine and its B series CASE counterpart. The fuel savings they are seeing with these machines is incredible.

Nice looking 6N. I still have a fetish for the 6R's with 6 way blades. I just can't get enough of the 6RXW we have with us right now on site, I love it.

The X2 runs the Izuzu tier 3 4 cylinder. Pretty high tech motor, intercooler, cooled egr, yada, yada. Love to have one.
