Well we cut the trees today..The excavator is getting moved over Friday morning. I will have many more pics. We are setting a 2 car garage into the hill..The second story will be for storage and will have a walk out aound the back..The digging is very boney gravel, it would be great material if it was run through a crusher.

Isn't that overkill using a skidder for those baby trees :laugh:

Lots of good firewood for somebody don't get it too dirty skidding it because dirt sure makes the firewood cutting experience frustrating :D

Keep us updated on the progress :canadaflag:

It has about 6,000 hours on it..Im pretty sure it got fresh paint and decals last winter..It really is the perfect size, plenty of reach and power..Not a whole lot of tail swing either

Okay I have to ask, I don't remember if I have read the answer to this before or not but I have noticed that it 'seems' that more excavators back east have more mechanical thumbs than hyd. thumbs? Is it just coincidence that I happen to see most from the east coast with them or is there an actual reason behind this? I know that we're closer here in Washington State to some big companies like PSM and CWS and HPF so it may cost less for shipping. I'm just curious.
