    I love the old Cat excavators, they just run forever. The 375's are fairly uncommon as they didn't produce them into the B series, seeing one is pretty cool. That 1250 is awesome for sure, haven't seen a hoe that big up close.

    The box in the second picture would never be allowed if a hard as*ed OSHA inspector was there.....

    For real, I just noticed that. Boxes must be 2' above top of excavation.

    What's the box for?

    That is some heavy iron.

    I've never seen a pipe trailer like that before, are they driven by hydraulics? Also Iv'e never seen a tracked dump, thats pretty cool.

    I will say that that box no longer looks like that, as of today it was a completely different setup that was more safe looking. Box was all the way to the top if the hole, more bracing and ladders.

    The box is to protect the laborers from falling debris and cave ins.
