    John C is right they are built to take some abuse. I tried my best to rip one off a D9 trying to get a rock out of a slope, but they can wear out a dozer fast.

    Never seen one here in Okie land. Try to stay from road jobs at that stage of construction.

    ATECO, Inc. always had a great board. You can get one if you are willing to wait a month.

    The outfit I worked for back in NZ made one up for a TD 15B back in the 70s, was real handy doing batters, no need to get a grader in to trim the cuts as a grader was what was used back then to trim batters, untill excavators came along. Cheers RDG.
