    This is a secondary school that I was on last year during the summer, weather was amazing!

    The machine I'm using in the pics is a 2007 Hitachi Zaxis ZX225USRLC with a selector grab. It tips the scales without attachment about 23.5t. Relatively small in the demo world but it has great speed, control and more than enough power for its size.

    Anyway here we go...

    Armac.

    Andy, I see that Armac have pulled in a few nice pieces onto the A46 Rugby turn, this is a common route for me on the way to Quarrys and Landfill sites in that area.

    tctractors,

    Yeh, we've just knocked a bridge near longbridge island last weekend so we had a fair few bits of kit in the area.

    hey Andy, what kind of demo are you working on now, mate? Is it pretty busy over there, or has the economy slowed your work too?

    cheers.

    D5G,

    I would say that school was no older than 20-30 years.

    Wolf,

    I'm on a similar school now but a lot smaller. The slow down is affecting the industry but were still busy so I have to be grateful for that!

    Should I start a new thread for new pics or post them in here, I'm not sure.

    Is this the same kind of job as you are doing this summer too, Andy? Get to do any fun stuff like pull down the basketball hoop with your kit? Got any pictures of this year's destruction?
