    atleast you didnt get stopped by the DOT...i slid our trackhoe off the lowboy today with muddy tracks and a wet trailer...made it more slippery then ice, luckily i was thinking it was probably going to happen to i was able to catch myself on the road bank and push the tracks back onto the trailer sideways

    Looks like you need a little more room for the dozer tracks to set on, the pads are twisted pretty bad.Probably the pins and bushing are getting wore besides.

    Plus the tire is kind of close there with the pads twisted.Price of fuel and not having to make extra trip guys got to do what he has too.

    Good luck with your project!

    yeah i told him i wanted them both on one load no if ands or buts about it. the p&b's where actully just turned hasnt gone 100' since, it just was barley sitting on the tracks so all the weight was pushin it down. i should have put a few 4x4's down on the trailer to support it.

    no sir!! i was planing on renting a pc300 from sunbelt and using my single axle and ct332 but my dad is slow so i subed it out to him. i should have said that from the start. its really not that large of a job.

    he is going to dig the hole and haul the dirt(hes gona run the truck im gona run the 200). im going to build the road and do all the tree removal across the swamp.

    money wise it didnt make since, i could pay him to bring in 3 machines and do the work for the price of renting the 300 so this way will work out better.

    after you take care of the trees you may want to think about losing the thumb...it adds a lot of weight especially when you are digging in wet heavy mud...last thing you want to do is get tippy loading trucks, makes for a very uncomfortable day
