Just about all of the lakes we work at they use the suction pumps due to how much fine silt it is. We are the only company in our area that dredges by excavating and we only do boat docks and marinas. Hopefully the state will soon start subbing out dredging since their equipment is so old and a lot of their guys are starting to retire.

I am not sure what exact oil it is we run I don't believe it is the vegetable oil. My dad retired from his oil company and I leave all of that up to him, he knows more about oil then I ever care to. We only run it in the 315cl since it only comes off the barge a few times a year. I haven't noticed that much of a difference but we changed the oil soon after we got the machine.

Here are some off of my phone from July. The first two are from a small residuntal job way back in a channel. It was so shallow we had to use the excavator to move the barge around all day. We would pull the barge up the channel, unload and have to back all of the way out was a long day. The other two are when we had to go about 4 miles across the lake and then a half mile up river and unhook the push boat just so we could unload and spin around.

Andrew right now I have another 3,800 ton of rock to place, a barge to dismantle, and a few hundred feet of the composite sea wall to put in. We are looking at a river restoration project but it is very competitive so I don't know. The 330 is awesome but makes me sick that I cant keep it busy everyday. We use it for loading the barge and will use it to help dismantle and load out large pieces of a barge we bought.

My brother took a few pics of us moving the 330 over to another lake yesterday. We have a barge with a crane to dismantle and bring back to our shop. Any ideas what to do with the crane, it is a 1983 linkbelt and starts right up? I think my brother is sending me pictures of it so i can post them. But i seriously don't know what to do with it?

It's a good thing your Dad and I don't work together! Sounds like you are the opposite of most Father/Son operations. Usually the Son wants all the toys and Dad wont allow it LOL!

It is kinda funny, Dad just likes to be able to do everything himself and not have to wait on anyone. He also likes to look at all of the deals out their right now and doesent want to miss out. If things turn around he does not like the idea of haveing to pay an arm and a leg if we would need ne in a year or so.
