    Have to take a stab at it but....that burnt machine looks like Fleet Millings RX700 that burnt in the cut in Manhatten, New York City last year.

    Thanks for all the pictures Griz, good to have you around:)

    Also, its good to see that Garrity are buying Roadtecs these days, I was in their yard in 2005 and all they had were CAT and and a few CMI machines. I know they had a W1200f too.

    I was told that machine was loaded Thursday and sent to a company in Florida called Turtle milling, they actually bought it.

    It had less than 700 hours on it at the time it burnt up. If we were to answer the question about what happened, peoples feelings would be hurt:)

    Man, I gotta know who owns those RX900's and would run them in the city in tandem, thats allot of cutting power in one place. I'd be over there in a second if they needed help:)

    Thanks for that Info Oakland, when I finally get a phone that ISN'T mixed up with Nextel I'll have service and give them a call. The website was a good read.

    I noticed above that the dudes from Barcelona have the grade control box wire running directly to the sensor box control...its like a bypass, I've done that with a few Wirtgens.

    Why anyone would run that to that level of disrepair is quite simply stupid.

    If you..

    Believe the read out on the CAT dash...it sez the autos are on and we are moving along at 99 ft per min. The RPM gauge shows that what we are cutting isn't into the motor at all.
