I heard Tripple B Excavating bought that machine for cleaning out ditches in Abbotsford :laugh:

Usually you don't see excavators that size must have been a custom order.

I know where you can get a free one of those. Well almost. Its at the bottom of lake Michagan. It was on a dreging barge. It came in for some sort of maintance and they for got to put some plugs back into place. So the take the machine out, start digging and well it sank.

So maybe you could get those siphon pumps up north and start sucking.

I think you could stretch it to do one pin, thats it!

I know that machine has to have an automated greasing system, I wonder how many tubes of grease are hooked up at one time..
