Default Re: The operator in the sky

Was going to start a rant but once I read the comment about a certain book of face I simply lost the will to write let alone rant where's a highly embarrassed smiley when you need one.

If that's the public face of plant operators god help us.

im 32 and im gonna start looking for a good young lad to join our team someone whos had a bit of farm experience etc but finding someone like that is hard as most either are on a farm so stay or part of family business like i was.

ive got a 24 yr old lad whos got potential but hes going down the joinery route rather than machines, means only me and 61yr old foreman out of 6 guys drive the machines which is hard at times,

Giles ,you just find a good lad to carry your camera kit for you and stuff this game!

That page on the work of the devil is a total disgrace!

I have been looking at a similar retro fit system, http://www.excavatingsolutions.com/.
Would like to have a go on one to see if it is as good as they make out. Would save me a lot of time grading slopes accurately and as the saying goes, time is money.

I think Frank's got some fancy satellite controlled system like that Gra - need to have a word with him!
