    I'd be interested to see if I could pick up a quarter with an excavator that had a thumb without having to grab a bucketful of dirt with it.

    I wouldn't even be able to see in on the ground from the big excavator. I may just try it with the mini oneday... any other takers?

    If I had a mini I'd try it. Maybe I'll attempt it on the 490 Deere. The thumb is just terrible so I'll have to try to grab it on the bucket tooth.

    If you mean takers with video cameras then that I am not, but I'll see if I can't get it.

    I'll do the cups when I get a camera, but I am not trying a quarter, well I might but if it isnt succesful the first time with out the camera then I aint doing it with the camera.

    Since I told yall I would do the stacking the cups thing we havent rented a piece of equipment since then..

    Picking up change is no big deal. At least with a forklift. I used to be able to do it with a dime. Its all about the downpressure on the forks.

    I'm sure you could do it with a skid to right?

    Dont see why not. As long as the cutting edge is straight enough.

    Just use forks on a skid, and then try it with a bucket..
