They have a lot of extra excavator sticks, shears, and loader buckets laying around so it looks like they plan on bringing in at least 4 or 5 more excavators and 2 loaders.

Cat 325 w/ Labounty shear


2 Cat 375's (one w/ Labounty shear and one w/ grapple)


Volvo water truck for dust control



3 Cat 375's, 325, and volvo


Cat 375 and 980G
Where is that at? I know the recently tore down Buick and 3 years ago they took AC Delphi down, both in Flint.

Its a shame to see all these GM plants go down. About the only one in Flint anymore is Truck and Bus.

Erickson Crane was doing a lift the other day (3/30) in the rain to replace a boiler in the BridgeWater Place Tower between I-196 and Bridge street. They had their biggest Grove truck crane on site to make the picks.

I stopped by the GM plant demo site yesterday on my way home. The whole building is on the ground now and they're breaking up concrete and hauling everything away. Its pretty crazy to see the amount of space the factory took up and its now an empty lot.

Looking west from Buchanan Street




Looking NW
