    That’s rather random. Cool nonetheless

    As quirky as my mind can be....lots of everyday stuff strikes me as random. Then again what is considered everyday occurrences now used to be an anomaly.....

    I thought it was rather random also. We have been building a new bridge up the road for almost a year. That is the "outside" looking east the next stop would be Spain or Portugal. The coastline took a beating in a couple storms we had earlier this year. There are many companies that have or are rehabing or replacing seawalls and damaged beaches and structures. This company showed up with a Reid bouncing box and 988 ("A" Model) probably early 70's, a 120 and this 8. They handled it old school. Pretty cool!

    I was down in Mexico at one of those "private" beach resorts & their groomer was an OLD Ford tractor, blowin' smoke & leakin oil, dragging an old bed box spring.. Lol
    It didn't look like much but it did a heck of a job smoothing out the sand..
    & the guys behind the tractor pickin at the sand, looked like seagulls behind a shrimp trawler. :D:)
    I LOVE the beach..

    a very ingenious friend of mine would like to change the bucket of a large loader to apply a sieve to create an operating spot to clean the beaches, it would be feasible according to your opinion, I very modestly advised to modify a motorscraper or rather a scraper of those who they are towed, what do you think?

    If was going to make a career out cleaning beaches... I would probably consider the tow behind with the screen deck ditch that tractor and get a Challenger. However I would have a side conveyor to unload into a truck on the fly. So my screening operation never stopped. I would want to conveyor the collected debris into a 20 yard container on my custom built beach truck. High flotation tires, auto trans all wheel drive with like a stellar hooker for can handling. That truck would drop loaded cans at the holding yard and bring an empty back to the screener. Mean while a highway can hauler would be moving loaded cans to the dumpsite and back. High speed Low drag. Expensive to get to started fast like that however. I just spent 5 or 600,000 dollars and don't even have a beach!

    nelle mie parti usiamo vecchie macchine edili o piccoli dumper, la pulizia è fatta a mano con pala e rastrello, per questo motivo un mio amico ha deciso di cambiare una pala meccanica, saresti così gentile da allegare foto ai tuoi strumenti pesanti grazie, da parte mia molte spiagge mi scusano per il casino del messaggio precedente grazie
