    Today I took a little ride out to the big sewer line project to check on the progress. The big main 30" sewer line is going pretty slow. They've it a lot of rock and water while digging for the line. Over course they are having a water problem, their digging 12' deeper that the lake beside it!

    Starting off we have a komatsu PC228 with a tilt bucket

    the hoe digs the trench and a loader can load the stone into the hopper...then the stone is routed on a conveyor under the hoe and shot into the trench

    a pretty cool idea

    Please? This place gets pretty boring during the day, I am stuck in school on my laptop trying to look occupied while looking at HEF and here, by 2nd block I have read everything..

    Thanks Dirt...

    Its actually used for filling the hoe bucket. Instead of using a rock box (Where the operator would have to swing around and dip or move the box) he just hangs the bucket low and fills it. Then reaches into the trench to spread it.

    Junior.....they are not telling the truth about the rock bucket......it is used like a shot gun when they see unwanted people coming on to the job.......a few splats from that shooter discourages lookie-loo's........ :)

    Okay you win points for using 'lookie-loo's'. I had to laugh at that.

    That PC400 has a custom long stick, that ain't factory!
    NorthWest has a slinger conveyor under one of their EX450's that was used in Crackcouver, very, very neat to watch in action.
