the first few pictures are at Mansfield crossing in mansfield ma. it is an 80 acre site job which we had to move 300,000 cy's of material in 2 months had 3 D8's working 12 hrs a day then had 22 excavators and about 80+ guys on site everyday. It was quite a job. The sewer had to come up the road cross a major highway as well as the electric.

It is no different to run the controls are exactly the same. it only gets awkward when loading trucks. because you end up sitting on the opposite side as the driver. but the loud air horn makes up for that. its actually a nice machine to run when your working down pretty deep.

Those Koehrings were designed to dig deep, but they had the same issue as the early Hitachi UH models, 2 main boom pins.

most of the big excavators have 2 main boom pins so thats not a problem the problem with that machine is the boom cracks pretty easily. but we know what to look for so its not much of a problem. we don't use that machine much anymore and my brothers and i keep joking that were going to have to paint it soon and park it out front with the other two koehrings.
