Yeah, those 984s are freaking awesome. Nothing like it... It should weigh about 265,000 minimum. They recently brought out a new machine called the R9100, which run about 14,000 less. Makes you wonder if the 984's going the way of the dino.

Chris spent most of last night looking through this thread. Very nice work and the new Kenworth is a thing of beauty. When you are installing ponds or build a dam, do you not have to do compaction? Out here we generally have to have 95-98% compaction to pass inspection. I would really like to know what the engineers were thinking on some of the creek jobs you had to do. We run into the same issue out here all the time.

A little off topic but I noticed you had an excavator collection. Not sure if you seen these or this forum before but you need to add one of these to the collection.

yeah I've seen those before, you can buy a good used mini excavator for what those things cost! plus the real ones are way more fun.

How do you like your tri axle trailer? Does it handle the mini ex well?

I've been slacking

Well i've been slacking on the pics. Been working on a select clearing project with the 140 and i'm getting burnt out on it. thinning out 6 acres and burning it. real tight work. Now the owner wants it 50% thinner so I'll be back at it again. Good working by the hour now
















did a little drainage job tieing in some down spouts off a building








Graded out a mile long logging road



Started a 2 acre clearing job with the 210 today

clearing for some horse pasture for a customer.









some logs cut

Chris,

Have you ever run the numbers on grinding all then non-sale-able timber from your clearing jobs into biomass fuel. I see all your big piles being burned and have to wonder if there is money to be had going up in smoke there.

Burning is always cheaper if the jobsite allows it.

Best i've heard around here is getting 10 bucks a yard for that or $1000 a tractor trailer load. By the time you knock it down, sort it out, pile it up, grind it. load it then haul it I dont see any money in that.

Plus I like to play with fires.
