Only if someone is actually in the hole, which I would have to believe is not the case

We have a PC228 and a Cat 308c at work with one of those offset booms on it.

Uhhh yeah, 'twas a joke. Obviously the machine is digging inside a very tight box with no room for anyone to actually be in the trench. Nor is there probably room for the ladder, hence I surmise the reason for it laying on the ground.

Very nice equipment. This must be a pretty big operation John, looks like you guys have lots of iron.
Also I have never seen sidewalks paved with asphalt before, interesting.

I figured you were, but you know what they say about assuming. Wasn't trying to start anything, promise
