    Hey guys,

    I love heavy equipment and anything related to the construction/excavating industries. That being said one hobby of mine is taking photos of heavy equipment and trucks whenever I see then. I figure there must be some other guys on here who love equipment like I do even if we don't own it and I know all you guys love pictures. So I figure why not start a thread where anyone can post random pictures of excavating and construction equipment for everyone to enjoy. I'll start it off with some recent photos i took.

    These are from the Grand Rapids area.

    Thanks,

    A little info about the pics above- The first ones are just south of grand rapids where they are tearing down an old GM plant.

    The yellow lowboy, Cat 375, tower crane, and grove crane are working at Grand valley state university building a new library.

    The high reach Cat 365 is demoing a building in GR where Grand Valley is gonna build a new business college. The Libherr drill is putting down foundations at the same site for the new building after the demo debris was cleared.

    The Deere 850 is working on interconnecting a 48" water line under I-196 because they widened the highway by two lanes each way.

    The EX800 is installing sewer through a right-of-way near the grand rapids airport.
