    Here's a vid of me at work on the T-190..

    I had just finished ripping down a HUGE (small house sized) shed, and was in the process of moving the debris out of the backyard..

    Enjoy!

    That brought back a flood of rather unpleasant memories. [​IMG]

    Haha.. I hope my machine doesn't take the same path that yours did..

    So far only problems have been with the hydraulic hoses and a fitting coming loose which caused the machine to leak hydraulic fluid..

    We were able to fix both.

    I called the local Bobcat dealer when the fitting was loose; I didn't think we'd be able to get to it, and they told me it would be 2-3 weeks!

    Did you separate the tin and and steel in the building to recycle. Sometimes you can make enough money to at least cover all the fuel cost for the job just by recycling the steel and better yet any copper on tear downs.

    My 190 is a baby.. Right at about 70 hrs.

    The demo I'm doing is part of a government project that we're doing sub-work on; we're cleaning out the exteriors of homes that were damaged in Katrina and bought by the government.

    As far as scrapping the metal; I let my guys keep any copper they find for their "bonus." Otherwise, we get paid for debris generated by the cubic yard; I make more on the debris than I would scrapping the metal.

    I don't mind doing demo but would rather be on a landscape job any day...
