Working in california

Well things at home were slow, Had a bad break up with my chick so i packed up and went out to work for my uncle in cali for a while. Have been out here for about two months now havent really been working just having fun but now the works started. I like it out here. Ill go back to IL when Im ready lol. But im making good money here no complaints and just having a good life experiance. Heres some pics ill have plenty more in the weeks to come were swamped. Ive been running a new 550j Im fixing a river bed for errision control placing these boulders on the side. Not how I woulda done it but hey, Im just a operator out here haha. I think i like it better this way at home I have to many things to deal with being owner operator

No love for the parallel offset boom or what? Have you got much use out of the slope boards on the 550? Never gotten to play around with any, but they seem to work well on finish dozers. Didn't Peterson or someone come up with them for cable dozers and they've never made it much east of the rockies?

That dozer is pretty sweet with the slope boards. Some of those houses in the background are pretty nice.

Slope boards

How much pressure can you put on those slope boards on the dozer before they break? Or do they trip back if say you hit a rock or stump?
Rarely see them in Australia. We have shallow topsoil, hard subsoil and rocks & stumps on most jobs.
