    Travel time

    I am an operator, but sometimes I get roped into driving the lowboy if they don't have a driver available. Obviously, they pay me if I haul a machine. But for this thread let's look at it from the operator's standpoint. The company itself is local to me, their main shop is half an hour away, so...

    Travel time

    I was wondering if any of you who have to travel to work get paid for travel time or compensated in some other way. The company I work for doesn't have a policy, as such, seems to be more of a hit or miss deal- ie., if it takes an entire day to get from the shop to the site they will pay you for...

    Homemade sprocket liners for my Allis Chalmers HD9

    Wish I would have known that, wouldn't have messed around with the pipe if I knew you guys were still around. Used to see your ads in Rock and Dirt but haven't seen any for awhile. What would the cost be for a set of liners for an HD9 or something similar?

    Some more vids of the old D6

    Things are slowing down at work a little so now I've got some time to make the odd post or two. I put the tilt cylinder on the old 6, here's a thread about it from awhile back https://www.heavyequipmentforums.com/showthread.php?7538-tilt-cylinder-for-my-D6-9U&highlight=

    Bucyrus Erie 325

    Cummins 903 and fiberglass body ALong with it there in the scrap pile is a real nice 666 Koehring, an IH 175B with 4 in 1 bucket, a TD15B with brand new UC, and a decent-looking 955K. What a shame.

    Bucyrus Erie 325

    This is (was?) sitting in the scrapyard the other day. I almost bought this machine years ago, it was sitting next to my 983 when I bought it.
