To go with a cost of living that would make my country-ass head spin, i'm sure.
wow all the power to you if you can get that. Unions really don't exist here. If that was the going rate people would starve to death. Laborers get around $7.25- 12 a hour here.
The labour rates are about par for here a labourer makes 20 per hour a good labourer is able to do most things. A labourer isn't a kid that wears baggy pants that keep falling down and wears shoes that are 2 sizes too big.
You can't find anybody that will work for anything less than 15 dollars per hour that is worth hiring.
25 per hour, wow John you guys need any help?
thats the union wages. if you work for a non union contractor its more like 15-20

I see ASV tracks in the 4th pic.
yea we only had it about 3 years then traded it for the 277B. We didn't even want to buy that when it came out but the dealer could not get us a 247 cat. that was a long story someone almost lost their job over that. we found the rc50 was light on the ass end but it worked out ok for working on some of the holes we were in on a sewer treatment plant job.
The little CTL's work good in these wide trenches for back fill work, sure saves time with 2 guys and an excavator.
actually we barely use them. the 287 is about a 2004 with a little over 1000 hrs. the 277 is a 2007 and has around 600 hrs. the kind of work we do they aren't that useful our jobs are pretty large and we need a larger machine to keep up with the production we can do.
