    Its a good reliable machine. best part is you can go all day on a half tank of fuel and still have some remaing at the end of the day. The one in the pictures in the fourth daewoo we have bought over the years. Guess the next one will be a doosan:D

    We do some pond work for golf courses but all these pictures were job for private individuals. As you can tell we build alot of ponds!

    I've only had a camera for about a year, If I could only have pictures of some of the awsome jobs I have been on throughout the years. O well I'll start now...

    Yeah you can definately say their awesome on fuel. And in horsepower mode or mode 3... they are really violent. The 130 Scott had used a digging bucket from a 320 cat, and a ditching bucket off a 220 daewoo modified to fit the JRB pin grabber coupler we had. The machine didn't like the size of the buckets, but it sure muscled them through the ground pretty easily. The only complaint I had about them was greasing them. I always had to pop the bucket off sit it under where the boom/stick pin are and stand on it to grease them because you couldnt get boom/joint fittings and top bucket cylinder and stick cylinder fitting from ground level.

    Nice pics dirtman! Notice your burning, we have had a problem burning, due to the ban! Doesn't help we're doing a road wideing. So no where to hide our brush. Have you all been affected by it? :stirthepot:usa

    yeah it's been a real pain for us. so many clearing jobs and then you can't burn the stuff. then the price for doing the job goes up to the point where the owner does not want to do the job then:Banghead
    Atleast we had a month where the ban was lifted and burning could start again.

    I think the ban was stated again this thursday. some fools last weekend set half the state on fire when they decided to burn on a day when the winds were 40mph:eek: some people just have to ruin it for the rest of us...

    Yeah its raining here now, so maybe they will lift it again? I guess that means no work for me tomorrow. I hate the rain because of the lack of work, but we need it due to the drought! There was a forest fire close to my house last week, but it was due to a downed power line.

    Nice pics!!! Do you have alot of problems with building the bond in your state? Here there is so much red tape......especially if you're anywhere near any natural water. (i.e. river, stream, lake, pond, etc)

    hymmmm... It's better to beg for forgiveness than ask for permission. We build many many ponds a year and have never gotten a permit. One fellow went about it the right way a went through the permit process to build a pond. It took him 2 yrs to get the ok:eek:

    Usually if you are building a pond where there is no perminent water flow there are no questions asked.
    The main thing we have to do is keep the highest part of the dam under 15' anything over has to be approved by the state. you can did the pond 40' deep but the dam can't be over 15 ' tall.

    We've only been shut down once in many years. Had a helicopter taking some very nice arial photos of the jobsite and the wetlands that we were in. the next day the nice white state truck came out a gave use a little pink sheet that said stop work!! Homeowner gave someone a nice check a we were back to work in a week:pointhead
