    Hey guys. Here’s some pictures of my recent road builder build. My machine is a 2005 hitachi zx200lc-1 sitting on a high walker track frame along with some custom hydraulic clam shell guarding. The guarding runs on its own separate hydraulic power pack along with accessible battery leads Incase of dead batteries. So far I have not had any issues! Enjoy.

    That's real impressive. Seems a shame to take it out in the woods and dirty up all that nice work.

    It’s well taken care of and I’m the only one that runs it. She still young with 8300 hours.

    Can see that a lot of work went into getting this machine ready and looking so good- what a great looking forestry excavator. Inspiring pics, nice one.

    This thread confused me for a second! I knew Hugh Walker, and he was in a wheelchair. My thought for a split second was that you had put wheels on it!! :D

    It sure does look like you have put work into upgrading her, and maintaining her if she has 8300 on her.
