    I had never heard the term float till I moved to TN. The oldtimers here seem to use it in place of equipment trailer.

    Little update on the airport project. Originally was going to rent a good friends 450D but decided against that at the last moment. We have quite a few bids out at the moment that we could use a larger excavator on , so this is a Cat 329E that is on a rental , and if we decide we like it and the work comes our way we can convert a good portion of the payments to a down payment and if not it just goes back where it came from and nothing is lost. It is a 2013 with 1000 hours. Pin grabber, hydraulic thumb, auto greaser. Got our Hitachi 135 showing up Monday morning , and our grinder and rental rock truck mid week.

    No the feller buncher is not ours . We are just doing the stumping and grinding of the stumps on this job. We may get the portion to grind the tree tops and branches as an extra.

    So are you going to rip the stumps out with the exc and then grind them with the rotochopper? Are you worried about dirt/rocks? What style tooth are you running, has to be a hammer over a chipper tooth to handle that I would assume.

    You must be paying 25k a month in payments and another 4k a month in insurance on all theses machines.

    That's to bad you didn't get the entire clearing job. I'm sure you could have easily handled the job and now that you own the grinder to make it happen. Between the 329, roto and a rented buncher you would be set.

    All the stumps are getting broken apart pretty good before they go through the grinder to prevent dirt and rocks from entering the grinder . Grinder is running hammer style teeth on it with a large (6") screen/gate.

    As for the payments it's not no 25,000 a month in payments for the machines . As long as the machines are moving , and being run properly I am happy.
