well after she got done destroying Exeter I would hate to be around her on this one...you guys have quite a bit of work to do on this job...a lot of material and work...i know it like the back of my hand...5 retaining walls, a bunch of stone, structrual fill, ballast, etc...

they left a good bit of money on the table too when they won that thing


good to see they are buying new equipment with all the money they are saving by laying off so many people....cough cough

MAn going to a new company I would think that they would put you on an old junker but mabe its the experience. When I moved from my old company to new one they put me on an old machine and said lets see what you can do.

Once again congrats Kevin. Now we'll just have to watch the pics progress for that first scratch in the counterweight. I know your good.... but it will happen.

You build it, I'll certify it, Septa is a PITA because of that funky wide gage they run on those tracks.

I like the 328 but dang the cabs are small and those stupid doors that I always forget how to open. Komatsu 228 are nice too.

Slight hijack...

Dozerboy,

I'm skinny, but tall and would have to agree that the cabs on the 328 and 321's are small, but I think they are either layed out better or slightly larger than the komatsu 228's. Could just be me though:beatsme

I've joined hoeman on this job, and so... a few pics from my angle.
:cool:
