This is a Hitachi 50T excavator, basically this is a digger. This is one of the largest machines that can be transported via a truck without being dismantled. Well almost, little bits and pieces have to be taken off.
It loads 50t Capacity trucks, which I have some photos of, in 6 cycles, in other words, he fills the bucket and empties it into the truck roughly 6 times. That is 50T +
C&C always welcome

Love all that stuff Scott,
I never fail to be amazed at just how delicate those beasts can be at times also. One of my favourite shows on the telly is Time team which is about archeological digs in Britain and to watch them skim just a very thin controlled layer of dirt off an ancient stone walls is like some sort of mechanical ballet.
Re Boots I love my Blundstones but for some reason the soles on the last pair of steel caps melted into a gooey black mass after not being worn for a while.
I did once buy a pair of Rivers boots ( non steel caps ) to have them fall apart after 2 months. When I called and complained I was told they were NOT work boots and not designed to be worn every day. they were a "Dress boot" and intended to only be worn on saturday night !!!!
