    Not sure if it was. Maybe that would explain that cry for help in the debris.:confused::confused::confused:

    That was easy........or so it looks in the pictures, right?! What size mini was that and did you need to use a breaker at all for the slab?

    The mini is a 10k yanmar. We didn't need a breaker on this job. Basically, we send in the mini to tear down the roof for 2 reasons. 1 safety, 2 no flat tires. We then load all roof debris into containers, remove, then use the bobcat for everything else which is concrete.

    How long have you had the Solsbee grapple? Is it holding up well in demolition use?

    I've got a demo job I'm trying to get started on. Fun stuff.

    I bought the grapple in July I think for $1800.00 used. I never had another one buy there are a few things i don't like about it. Basically the hydraulic lines are over exposed and are suspectible to being hit at any time if you're not careful. There are cylinder guards that never stay stut and constantly slam up and down. I would like to sell it and buy an actual bobcat grapple next year. I like their design much better. But for the $ its not bad.

    Doing demo with a open ROPs excavator how much black stuff did you cough up :laugh:

    Looks like a fairly easy job. Were the walls concrete or is that stucco ?
