nope im an operator , mostly in a cat 320 , but there are only three operator with us on this job so we jump around a little ....with that said most of the equipment is the subcontractors stuff there here doing the bulk of the dirt moving , the subs http://www.mackenzieco.com/ ....... the reason the pics are all over cause we only work a 10hr and they stay and do 13/14 hrs so everyday two guys from our company have to stay late to help out if need be with anything, so if no help is needed then i just take a ride on the gator and snap pics

well its kinda just what it sounds like , the project started in some pretty hilly terrain, so the area when its done will have a big flat work area for drying material from the river (fill) and the area that the sediment will be placed will end up looking like a bowl (cut) .....the job is kinda simple they took "cut" all the topsoil off the site and piled it, then it becomes a cut and fill , cut the high spot down and fill the low spots which are all the valleys on this site....when i get back down there on monday i'll try and show a better pic of which is which
