    We havent been digging any houses latly or room additons. Been doing alot of storm sewer but heres a house I started today. The jackass who tore the orginal house down didnt pull the dirt walls down just pretty much left it which turned it into a great big mud mess. Should finish tommrow if we have enough trucks.

    We use it for setting the small skid steer in foundations. or tieing down on the trailer.

    We haul the machine with our louivilee six wheeler and a two axle tag trailer eager beaver. THe machine weight is right aroudn 28000. I love it. We have two and they both are strong great running machines. 160 size machines around here are nice but they are almost a little to big for the tight areas we get into sometimes.
