The feds dont require any sort of silt fence? i find that unbelievable that they do that type of work without it. We would be shot dead on the spot for that.

Hey Ned, the grinder has been working out great so far and really has added a different side to the business which i am excited to pursue even further. As for the cat it will be going back after 3 months rental. It is a really nice machine, better on fuel then i would of thought for a cat , but i don't feel it justifies the large amount extra that cat wants for the machine. Also for this type of work i am seriously looking into a 30 tonne reduced tail swing machine. The new Kobelco machines(2013+) seem very impressive and a friend in the business just traded 4 hitachi machines in on 5 new Kobelco machines if that says anything. Also for the price of the 329 (with now 1600 hours) I can get a new 260sr with a indexator roto tilt, bucket, grapple, cab guards, stump shear and 3 year warranty. When the time comes that we are looking for 35-45 tonne machines we will review the cat models models again.

I can't wait to follow the grinder pics, Ive always been intrigued by them. I can't say anything bad about the kobelco we have. Its been a tough machine. You'll be happier with the ZTS too, and if you can get new with all of the extra gear you want for the same money, its win win!!!

couple pictures of the end of the job. 2 are of me backfilling the side grade i had to cut in to remove all the stumps and trees. The hill was so steep you couldn't even walk up it if you tried. The feller buncher with large grousers and tilting cab only made it up about 150' and it would slide back down!The last 2 are of me helping a friend get his potato crop in last sunday.
