new iron

Finally I have some time to post pictures of the new 60. This job was at Brockton point light house in Stanley Park. We had the 60 on top of the sea wall lifting the rubble out and loading trucks. It had plenty of reach to clean up the concrete rubble 13' below. The 334 took the walls out and bailed the rubble to the 60.

The 60 was the perfect machine for this job. It's only 78" wide and fit through the double row of bollards on the sidewalk.

View from my office


At the light house in Stanley park


Here comes the coast guard.


Just getting started


They did a good job on these stairs, considering it's 90 years old


The west side was in poor condition from the salt water


lots of steel

That's a hell of a job and a view, did you have to put any spill booms in the water?

Must have been a little noisy being in close quarters with a hammer. Would be hard getting any work done watching the boat traffic go by

No doubt that is a job you would have to know somebody in the higher up management of Vancouver city council. Nice to see a small independant guy get the job.

I suspect bobcatuser is on their hired equipment lists, much like my brother is, and years of dealing with us gives us the edge.
