    Now for some excavator pics.

    First up, a small "fleet" shot:

    Another little wet area that we cleared out- the trees and brush were overgrowing the bog road:

    Machine makes me look small:

    That should be it from this job- I'll work on the other jobs we're on soon.

    Got a dusting this morning LOL! Other than that no, and looking at the long range we might get some the end of next week. But that's only a chance...

    Do you bid by the job or by the hour?

    hurry up and scratch the new off it so you dont have to be so cautious lol

    Oh can you use the thumb while shreading? like leave it spinning and grab a log?

    Ah Okay, that makes sense. Kinda hard to tell the size of the project from the photos.

    Thanks Bigirish- we work hard to present a first class appearance and do great work for our customers.

    Muddywater- we do both, but for most projects land clearing projects like you see here it is typically by the hour.

    Chris- Nah, I like the new ;-) A few sticks have scratched the machine as I walk down some overgrown roads, but they don't scratch the machine on the way out ;-)

    And yes, the thumb works great with the head spinning or stopped. It was a major reason why we went with this head over others actually.

    Coopers- ya, it is hard to tell by the size of the pics, but I cleared about 1/2-3/4 an acre in that time frame of those size trees. Out here, a logging crew running a feller buncher, skidder, and a ground guy will clear about an acre a day so I'm happy with my production with the machine.

    And ya, she is a pretty machine :)
