its a nice smooth machine, still not sure if I like the long stick as it seems it just does not have the pulling power the others do. all in all a good solid machine. but the 04 210 with with 5k hrs will lap the 140 and 160 in cycle time and smoothness all day long.

You don't have to know a thing about PPE. Some of the stuff I see... like the ladder in the bucket raised 10 ft in the air. That's common when a bucket truck isn't available!
haha im not gonna like ive thought about the ole ladder in the bucket trick before lol.

I still like the backhoe with the pallet forks on and a pallets raised up and 2 people using it as a man lift haha

Landed 3 big grading jobs that should keep me busy for a while.

started a 1/2 mile road project today. started clearing so the silt fence guys can get in and get started. I think there is 5,000 ft of silt fence on the plans.

found some rocks!

I remember when my aunt had her house built. Shes a very creative designer but has extremely expensive taste. They basically built her house around rocks about that size. It was quite the sight to see.
