Got bits on all over really got the 8L and a 45 tonner on a contract ripping rock out ahead of the crushers for a local private quarry operator in a no blast quarry.
We have a couple of small muck shift at Manchester and Liverpool and were going in to put back 250,000 m3 of soils at Widnes for Kiers.
Plus usual 20 tonners on hire on pipeline jobs in west Cumbria.
How's life in Bishopton is the job going to plan.

its been manic here getting the d6n and trimble all ready, finished today at 3pm shes of out tmrw for her first job.


had a nightmare with it though, centre bearing needed to be a recess bearing so ive had to adapt the base collar to allow for no recess, all sorted now though.





got ripper series 2 d6r to get site ready, d8k transmission fault to investigate, front scraper tyre slow puncture to investigate and then all the farm equipment to prep for harvest, gonna be the busiest year of my life so far for sure.

Sounds like child slave labour to me, Roly.

Mind you, one or two I've worked for would have been glad if their sons were as keen to step up as your Carl seems to be.

Thought I was looking at 3? of your tractor & boxes parked up near Milton Keynes amongst a few bits of other plant as I was ducking and diving around back roads to miss traffic jam on M1 homeward bound on Sat but as I got closer spotted ROME across back of boxes so knew I was wrong

I know very little about the likes of trimble and what I've heard is a bit mixed. I've been told that the trimble is connected to the blade on dozers and all the op has to do is run backwards and forwards. The trimble will actually do the technical bit for you. How true is this? If this is the case, surely this is taking away the ability of the operator to do his job with skill. However, a degree in computer wizardry would be some use.
I've probably got this totally wrong and I look forward to some colourful descriptions of my intelligence
