    Chuck Green down in Lakeside, Ca. has a few of Peed's 51B's and a D10N right now for sale. Wonder if he is down sizing due to current times?

    I was an equipment operator in AZ, I worked for Rummel Construction. We had 14 657 E's while I worked there. Those are pretty fun to operate, but I wasn't a regular in them

    If you work in Windemere in '07, do you meet Lisa, the packer girl on his 836 or Alan, a french acadian guy on his D9N???

    Me, a worked most of the summer '07 in Summerside and the big job called 17ST - Industrial during the fall with de 1100EX.

    About the D11, I think is in the pit at Villeneuve or in Wabamum coal mine.

    Bonechip, i would think everyone has no downtime in Cali at the moment when it comes to scraper fleets, not much happening from what i can gather?

    Yes your right about that, he is still able to keep some running here and there, but when they are running down time is very very low, Peed equipment does deliver a good product to their customers.

    desilva/gates construction had 32 657's but now are down to only 16. they sold them because of the downturn in the economy and no subdivision work in northern california.

    Scraper Tires

    We bought this year entirely too many tires:

    37.5-39 44PR Belshina 219B E/L4

    If anybody would know a sizable fleet of 657/631 this tire
    would be a great value. I have them sitting safe and sound in a warehouse in Carson CA. Any referral to help liquidate these is greatly appreciated.

    I love to buy and sell tires and parts, just got a little overzealous on this one!
    Thanks for any insight. :pointhead

    Since you were trying to make back door cheep deals against this sites terms of use policy i figured you were looking to deal, but apparently not. I will stick to known major brand tires for my equipment, not Chinese tires that might not be fit for use as a tugboat cushion.

    not to mention your FIRST post here was one trying to solicit sales.
