    Just signed up yesterday, here is a few pics I have.
    The PC1250 was working last year in a retail development in a suburb of Cleveland. It was a rock job, one day I swung by there they had the 1250 with a single tooth ripper shank on it attacking some sandstone, they had a water wagon parked next to it sprying the whole time to keep the dust down. It was mostly used for loading the 4-5 Cat 777 rock trucks on site. They had it making a 10'-12' cut. They also had 3 385s working there at one time along with a 825 compactor, D9, D8, and a few other support equipment.

    The Hitachi 1200 was used for demoing an old department store.
    I believe thats a PC400 on the right and 300 on the other side.
    THe Hitachi pic is probably 5yrs old or so.

    Bear with me, this is a different system for attaching pics that I haven't used.

    At the time it didn't have their stickers on it, yet. But a couple years later I saw one just like it with their stickers on it in Cleveland. The PC1250 was on machinery trader soon after the major dirtwork was completed on that job.

    And I am probably newer still.

    Man, these rigs look like fun. My wife probably thinks I've lost it looking at all this equipment online. Since I am usually under gunned equipment-wise, the size and power of these big machines has a certain appeal.

    She may well think so but she's a wise woman and acts like I already own and expertly operate the heavy equipment I dream about.

    Thanks for the welcome - this is a great forum.
