    Figured it was about time to throw up some pictures I've collected. I'll try to narrate as best I can. I don't want to get too shown up on the pictures deal these days.

    Road widening job just outside of my hometown, I actually own property along this stretch of road. The road needed it badly, I can almost guarantee my property value went up at least 10%.

    This one is just for Jr.. This is the only way to set down a hoepac overnight.

    Hang ten. With the hoepac on there reaching this far out, the back of the carriage was at least a couple feet off the ground. My dad would absolutely freak out.

    I should do a study and see how many Case excavators actually have that stupid mailbox flag still in tact to derive the average amount of hours before it gets busted off.

    That is one beautiful CX330. What were those other pictures of?:laugh:


    Do your little study Scag. Don't skew the results. I doubt you will that any have been broken. Unless some Union employee has been using it as an anchor point to rappel out of the cab with.

    That's home. Like I said, where the PC600 and D10 are, I have some property up that way, it's out in the sticks a little ways, but my lot is in a subdivision. The retaining wall pics are shots from the valley, my parents house is almost directly across the lake from where the wall was being built.

    The only thing that CX330 had going for it was the PSM thumb, that's about it.

    Jr., that 600 was used to load blasted rock into offroad trucks. The 10 would push rock to the excavator so it could be loaded. They had a 750 up there at one point, that's a big boy. At the height of the action, they also had at least 5 D8's up there all strewn out, 6 or 7 631D's, couple 16G's, a 6R LGP, and a few good size haul trucks.
