The bucket size is a factor too, the 200's use a 60 inch, they can load a truck in 9 passes, and the 330's use a 72 - 84 inch bucket, and it will load in half the time, so it's a better machine.

I'm not positive if they have one. I really don't see MCM around here to much. There was another large Cat excavator I think it was a 375 (it was a long ways away) sitting on the site still broke down like they just delivered it. I didnt see the stick sitting around so it might be what your talking about.

Nothing bigger than what we have now, renting is still better, but a new 320DLRR is coming.......soon.
Are you still going to be in town for a while? I got rained out today and tomorrow might be the same, I need something to do.

A few new ones.

Cat D5M


Tonka truck made for the ArtPrize competition in Grand Rapids. The guy has it plated and road legal.


Some more pics of the new library construction on GVSU campus. Their digging in solid clay. The cement structure covered in waterproof fabric is a service tunnel that connects all the buildings on campus with steam for heat and access in the winter for maintenance.

Hey Jelinek61, just curious, what do you do that you can get on so many job sites and take pictures without being questioned?

I am so glad they just finished up the bridge work on US131. I presently go to GVSU and live in kentwood right now and every day on my way south on 131 i had to deal with the idiots that would not get over for the left lane closure until they got up to the arrow board.

The GM plant is the one off of 36th east of 131. I've only been over there to watch them once but plan on checking on their progress sometime soon.
