    So here's the 2 latest vids from today, I had to use one of Dad's POS's to clean a ditch, there was only 10 feet of room between the ditch and the blue berry bushes, I hated every minute of it, but the "Squirrel" always make me laugh!

    And Gravel Rat, if you are watching this, if you want to keep your little dumper busy for a week straight, you can play with me on these types of jobs! :laugh:

    Here's the 5 new vids:

    Crank up your volume on this one, there's a surprise in it, (hint; gas)
    I like to call this one "Machine Gun Thunder":

    Then I whipped around the site to the other side of the pile and the hell fire kept my Cat nice and warm as I drove past it:

    Another location behind the pile where I was processing more over size concrete, and another "surprise"!

    I had to wait for the concrete to be cleaned up, so I just did what comes naturally (I picked my nose and scratched my bum) and filmed with the other free fingers:

    how long do your tracks last running over all that concrete?

    Good question! These ones I can't say for sure, the T190 I wore off 2.5mm of rubber every year due to all the concrete I turn on, but those were narrow tracks (12.5") these ASV tracks are 15 inches, it really turns easier and it doesn't seem to wear down as fast, but the rubber is softer, so I need to keep tabs on this. I was very apprehensive to go to this job, but our mini and hammer weren't ready yet, and the demo ball wasn't going to arrive until next week, so I guess I got the short straw.

    But I still got over 900 hours on the T190 before the tracks snapped, and I was abusing them.

    Loading gravel into the trucks, watch how tipsy the 330 is with a 7 foot wide bucket of gravel!

    And the head cam makes it's debut:

    Yup, it's the manual angle version, so it works with all skid steers that don't have the electronic plug gizmo.
