    well its been a while since i posted, but the gas industry finally took a $h1+ here, and i got laid off from doing what i have done since i got outta high school, building roads, right-of-ways, and wellsites, but i got a new job on a surface mines here. I tried out on a 400 komatsu, and even though that is a small hoe for them, its big compared to what im used to, i also tried out on a 10R, and a 785 truck, i have never ran iron that big, seemed like it was pretty straight forward, just bigger, any tips to keep production up, not tear anything up, so on so on.....

    keep an eye on the old timers , they give up there secrets with out ever talking about them , just pay attention , and try it the way they do it , then develop your own system
