    Thanks man, We priced taking out 2500 yards I'd say thats every bit of 2k close to 2500 yards. hit alot of rock in the bottom of the pond and couldn't go much deeper

    $700 a day $2k a week and $7500 a month. I think thats a really good price. cat wanted 3600 a week for a 324 with a 55' boom and 48" bucket.

    this is a 60', 80klbs machine with and 80" tilt bucket.

    and Yes I've dropped my go pro before but when working over water its hard to find it when it comes off lol

    Is your dump missing a linkage on the rear? Or are those just alignment arms when lowering tthe dump body

    Its some sort of roller system to help the bed dump. see how low the lift cylinders are? take one heck of alot of force to get a full load up in the air but that helps somehow.

    That's the truth! There are a few places near me that have some really gummy clay....almost like marle or gumbo.....I will go to a sand pit, if my tracks are not already full of sand, and spin some cookies to get my tracks packed with sand before I go to those sites if its wet. It sure seems to help with clean out later on.
