He got his first job operating running a JD dozer with a backhoe attachment on it in Texas when he worked for Irby Construction digging powerpole foundations, he was a mechanic but they found he could operate, so boom! He got the job!

And thanks Chris, I was doing I'd say probably about the best I'd ever done up until then, that camera had me all worried, the only thing I could think about was dropping it and then running over it.. But I was tracking use my feet up until then to, the way I had the camera on my lap wouldnt let me move my legs around.. But thanks! I am working on getting better, thats one of the reasons for this..

And Chris, it is fast! I couldnt believe it folded up like it did! I was amazed! I didnt know what to do with the correct thumb...
So whats he have to say about bobcats??

No but I watched the fires burn at work today. I had just about as much fun as watching paint dry, grass grow, and a bobcat work

I plan on changing the company name, but I am sick of that kids BS, he talks about all the stuff his grandpa has and all the land he has and all the things he buys them, I am not the only one thats got in his face about it, but yeah, I know, it was stupid, could have went bad and I would've been suspended or expelled if he did throw a punch, but you can only take so much, right?
