    " Go up to the shop in the morning, grab the D6C and take it out to the job." DSCF1785.jpg Yeah, right. Nothing like shoveling snow all morning to get yourself in a good mood. I'm ready for spring.

    Yup,5 below zero,go get the 320C from the job site where you dug the cellar yesterday and bring it over here.The Mack was plugged in so it started ok,we had a 35 ton Rogers with a wetline so no problems there except the foot on the ram was missing so I had to find something to shim that up.I side loaded using to snowbanks for ramps.The Cat started ok.Such is life.It is nice when the operator can also move the equipment.Ron G

    When you reply in Quick Reply, hit Go Advanced, scroll down to Manage Attachments, click on that and a screen will appear where in the upper right corner you can "add files" click and you have the option to take or select a picture from your photo album. I can add three at a time. More will lock it up. After you hit upload they will load to the bottom of the page. May take a few seconds depending on connection. Then hit done to upload them and return to your post. Its a lot simpler than it sounds.

    Whats the tonnage rating on the skinny framed bridge in the last two pictures. Looks like serious pucker factor to me on the weight. I would be OK with the clearance.

    The bridge is rated for 200,000 pounds, I should have been right at 110,000 with that load. We've crossed that bridge with every different machine you can imagine and it's always tight. We actually had some 2x4's laying on the deck under that undercarriage to raise it up a bit, and there are some chains and binders holding the outside of the track pad up. Good thing we did all that!!

    The hate I had to go in was a little tighter than the bridge, I rubbed on both sides, but everything was still standing after I got through

    I guess while I'm at it, I should show my favorite lowbed picture. This is my grandpa's 1953 bubble nose Pete hauling his 1968 rail truck on his 1946 Pierce lowbed. He still has both of the trucks in this picture parked side by side at his house.

    Amazing.I thought the wide angle shots had to be from a camera.I have a cell phone with a camera but I have never used the cam,only when trying to talk on the phone and trying to hold on to it without dropping it I hit the cam button by accident:))Thanks for the reply and the pics.Ron G
