    the walls a little sloppy...thats why i hate having to section everything off, i can never get as smooth of a wall if i have to worry about knocking dirt in on top of the stone i just placed

    lots of dirt...we are backfilling tomorrow so i will get a few pictures of that process...

    took a week to dig it all out, carry dirt, put 400 tons of #57's in and backfill...not to mention i have to keep pulling the truck out of the mud because it rained 3 of the 5 days and the place is still a slop hole

    it's not that bad...except when you have to get out of the machine HAHA

    i felt bad for my labor though...he was covered, i only got dirty when i blew a hydraulic line and had to fix it:hammerhead:

    I am glad to see that someone is still using a track loader.

    i think its a pile of junk...its very underpowered and touchy...then again it has 10,000 one owner hours on it, thats why i let him drive it...i would rather run in a nice comfortable backhoe with radio and heat then that bouncy, loud, cold loader.
