Just wondering how you guys got into running dozer, skidloaders, track hoes and so on. I guess mine started at an early age playing with dozers, wheel loaders, and excavators in the sand box. I always liked farming more growing up. I would set for hours watching people work the fields and help around ours at the time small mini farm. I guess how I got into excavating was when I had a waterway put in on my own farm. I got to help out running the 931C crawler loader, old Cat D4 dozer, and Deere 310 backhoe while the expert run the Komatsu dozer. It's funny because just a few years before I bought the farm I told dad I would like to buy a new skid loader (New Holland LS160) and put in drive ways. About five years later I bit the bullet and bought a used Deere skid steer and have learned allot with it. I'm trying to soak up everything I can about excavating. I feel that if you plan to be good at something you got to live and breath it as much as ya can. I have learned allot over the years just by watching and talking to people. Anyway what is your story guys?
