That is a decent size Palfinger crane on the Mack flatdeck.
what about those single axle cat articulating trucks?
you mean the moving stone boxes. they are ok but nothing compared to the D350's the only thing they are good for in my opinion is cleaning out the clay ponds at the rock quarry
I mean keeping the stuff up and running as far as maint and repairs. You guys must have several people in the shop?
one full time mechanic and a couple part time guys. everything gets fixed as soon as it breaks wheter its a hydraulic pump a leaking cylinder or an arm rest or stereo. We have found its alot easier to keep up then to let it go till winter. everything is in pretty good shape. our 304 has over 4000 hours and we just put new pins and bushings on the whole machine and a new undercarrige so we will probably get alot more life out of it.
Dang, thats quite the list of equipment. I would love to play with any of those for a day. Nice work.
yea you figure out after a while they are all the same. They all burn fuel. even throught the bad economy we have done pretty well work is slower but with all of the equipment paid for we can let it sit and not worry about keeping it moving as much which is nice. but it is even better to see it all moving dirt and making money.
since you brought up the palfinger here is what it is for
moving a trench box down the road
putting the box together
same from another angle
Here are some pics of trench paving
with the barber greene
with the 307
It is probably handier than h*ll to have your own crane truck for moving stuff around lifting stuff on jobsites etc.
