    That kind of work with a non-zero tail swing excavator is never fun, but you sure made a nice job of stepping the trench.
    So how is the gravel going in? Stone slinger?

    I remember pictures of his earlier posts, and the 334 he had pictured.

    No I am not smart, just a good memory.

    I used my S185 and a coulple of goon spoons to get the rock in.

    The excavator is a 334 G-series with about 3200 Hrs on it.

    Nice clean work. I too do a bunch of these, I like the ones no one else wants to touch because of access issues. Curios how you removed the material, could you spin 180 around in there? or did you just keep working it back?

    I pulled the material back. when there was a pile I used the skid to remove it.

    In the first pic you can see the green wire insulation on the ground from the junkies, I was worried about my buckets getting stolen so I had to hide them in the dirt pile at the end of the day.
