    New Caterpillar 265 Skids

    I've heard some guys are getting theirs on the east coast. No word yet. I'm not optimistic about having it this month, based off of how some other irons in the fire I have are going.

    New Caterpillar 265 Skids

    Anyone expecting deliveries on these in the near term? Mine is supposed to be here this week - I don't see any video out there of anyone putting them in the dirt yet so either I'm actually high up on the list, or the delivery date is overall much later than what I've been told! for interest

    Concrete Crushing: Getting Started

    Owner retains material and is stored on site. I wanted the jaw for the simplicity also. Unfortunately our one spec we have from our owner is -2" and we were sold on the idea that we get a more uniform product with an impact. Everything our guy told us makes sense to me, he is a former kiewit...

    Concrete Crushing: Getting Started

    I fought for this one. I thought we could tighten things up and just keep a good set of blow bars in the crusher and we would lose the screen, but our dealer rep that we indeed did reach out to told us that we would need a screen as inevitably we would be getting chunks out of the crusher as...

    Concrete Crushing: Getting Started

    Well spotted. It's a combination of availability, pricing, and quality of machine we are getting. Everything we see that has the closed circuit is either out of the budget or a total piece of ****. There's probably one out there, but due to time constraints we had to make a move and this is...

    Concrete Crushing: Getting Started

    Hopefully this forum is still somewhat active - We are a heavy civil contractor that was recently awarded a nice demolition project. Actual estimates are a little hazy but we will probably be crushing ~8000 tons of concrete on this project, with more to follow. We aren't going to buy new...

    Want to upgrade: D6N to D6T, concerns.

    The richie specs come from the cat specs. I just find ritchiespecs to be a lot easier to browse through to get the info I need. Owner told me the dozer weighs 58k.

    Want to upgrade: D6N to D6T, concerns.

    Thanks everyone for the responses. It will be nice to have a bigger hammer in heavier dozing applications, which will be nice. The mid to light dozing applications will be easily handled by the extra weight and horsepower. I see it as a benefit that I'll have to run a bigger tractor less...

    Want to upgrade: D6N to D6T, concerns.

    look it up on richiespecs. The T is just an overall bigger tractor. I didn't mean the ripper alone was the reason for the weight difference.

    Want to upgrade: D6N to D6T, concerns.

    the N is 18 tons and the T is 28. The N doesnt have a ripper, the T does.

    Want to upgrade: D6N to D6T, concerns.

    Just here seeking some input for those interested in providing it. I bought a d6N a few years ago. Came with Trimble setup. We've put about 1000 hours on it and it's been a great little tractor. It's an early 2006 model. The damn thing isn't too heavy or too light, cuts within .1", and I...

    Cost of GPS machine control?

    The site tech guys will be your best resource for all of this information. They're well practiced in explaining how it all works. It's a -lot- of money. Keep an eye on the auctions for clean used GPS ready machinery that's selling the whole package. There are setups that will run off of a...

    Drain Tile in a calving lot

    Im in the Midwest in an area that took a pretty good beating from the cyclone bomb whatever storm. Compounding the issue is a spring that’s a tad on the wet side. One of my customers is at his wits end with the mud, looking for a solution. Think of an area a little smaller than a football...

    Trimble Site vision

    Get used to it. It's early spring in the US, people are getting going on jobs, and my rep thinks now is a good time to send their techs/support guys on a training excursion. I mean seriously, what the f**k? Not sure I understand this question. I understand what you're trying to do here...

    140H 6400 hrs, transmission issue?

    Number 7 clutch solenoid. Wires looked good, must have just been some kind of internal electrical failure. Remove and install and she took right off.
