My Photos

Here are some pictures from a demolition job I had this past week. I go back tomorrow to haul out some dirt and dig footings. I have two other jobs lined up with this builder (another demo and basic clearing and foundation dig) and in May I have a small brush mulching job. Slowly but surely I'm bringing in jobs. I'm juggling this and another career choice I made 7 years ago...translates to working 7 days a week (plus raising kids).

Goal is to get busy enough to run the business full time. This 135 had 9 hours on it. I'm bringing in an Deere 85 to dig the footings and moving this 135 to another job once the builder makes up his mind which one he wants to do next. I have a Terex TSR60 there too. I'm interested in the P75 but they don't have one available right now. Hopefully by the next job.

I have a bid on a decent sized job that I'd like to test a Case CX160C on since the dealer is about 15 min from my house.

Looks good! The minimal tail excavators are nice on jobs like that.

There were some things I couldn't throw in with the general demolition material so I called those guys out to pick the stuff up. Nice thing about working in Seattle is all the people crawling out from under the rocks to take the scrap metal off your hands. One guy came and rolled three hot water tanks off the lot to scrap it. haha. One less thing I have to deal with.

Yeah it was great having this machine. Now it's a bit big for the lot which is why I have an 85 coming tomorrow to dig for foundation. If it was going to be a daylight basement dig I'd use this but since it's not I gotta be on the sidewalk at some point; Seattle would flip if they saw that 135 on their sidewalk.

I'll move this to the next job.

135 are great machines. We have a hitachi 135 equipped the same but with a blade on the front. That size of a machine is a world better with the blade. Not for pushing material but for stabilizing the machine and being able to pull dirt, and debris against the blade and pick it up. Flip that front mirror around so the operator can see it! haha !

Austin, I hate the 85 so far and I've only moved it from A to B. I'm using it tomorrow to dig footings. Cab is ridiculously uncomfortable. Other than that I'm sure it'll be okay but I can't sit in that cab for more than a day. Last time I use one if I can help it. I'll make sure I get a 75 for the next job.

I ended up not needn't that breaker. I could have used it on two pieces of concrete but not worth it to change it out.
