    Nice photos. I remember those days of pile driving. I think that is why my hearing is so bad today. No real hearing protection "back in the day".

    My previous Employer when I started had a P&H Magnetorque 100Tonner. Used quite often Corn Queen gas engine got weak so slipped a 4BT into it for chassis power, had a 210 Cummins in the House. Dependable old horse.

    The 22B was back at work this week after a couple of years rest. We had a maintenance dredging job in a marina . A narrow barge was the only access without pulling piles and removing floats. Tides allowed us about a 5 hour window of time to load and unload. The target was to do 100 yd.s per shift which we met . Offloading was done by excavator into trucks for land disposal. You can see the narrow gap the barge had to pass thru to reach the unloading bulkhead. P2121694.JPG P2121694.JPG P2131697.JPG

    Looks nice and the price was right. Have you got more boom for it?

    I never liked those scissors type outriggers. They are hard to walk up on blocks, because they move in as they go up. Not a problem if you're in a level spot.

    Old Cummins in the House?
    Most were underpowered on the chassis.

    Good find !! The positive on those out riggers is the screws ,keep them lubed up and make some quick handles out of 3/4" round bar and they work great. Sometimes better than the straight up n down on my Americans.

    I wonder who will still be digging in 10 years ,the John Deere or the Bucyrus Erie? I think the 22B already has at least 55 years on the 180. Take that to the carbon neutral bunch.

    Do you mean an Avery engine? Those are double ancient. Or do you mean another manufacturer?
