Well I went ahead and got a job with an excavation contractor. He does a lot of different work with different machines. So I figured it would be good working with someone a couple of times a week. I was supposed to start out not using equipment....but he was short on workers....So on my first day I got to spend a few hours using a Cat 262B to dump stone into a basement for slab prep! I tell ya....that 262B with steel tracks is a beast! I was on a pretty steep hill that was EXTREMELY muddy...had no trouble at all....and I promise you it wasnt skill!
