    I imagine they drilled it, placed charges, and blasted it. Could have used that expanding stuff but it takes a little time.

    We do get a lot of rock and land slides during this season. We had one like this last year too.

    Bleed green

    That rock is way too big to move in pieces; plus, it's on Hwy 2 which is a major road in and out of Eastern WA from the west side and DOT needed it moved ASAP.

    Looks like a rolled rolled against the side.

    If we had that kind of rock fall action on the Sea to Sky Highway, it would be shut down permanently, that is scary how many rock slides you hear about in that area.

    The collision pulled the hoe off the lowboy but it stayed on its tracks. It hit the bridge and then part of the dipper hit the pillar.

    That hoe was in perfect shape when I went by 2 days after the rock landed in the road. It was just east of where the rock landed sitting in a turnout waiting to be picked up. That's the railroad trestle about 1.5 miles east of Dryden. Bummer man, that was a decent 320CLU. Morons. Just think man, some of our tax dollars will fund them a new one. At least that badass thumb, coupler, and bucket are salvageable. Why don't you try to buy it from them, I know how you like that PSM stuff.:laugh:
