    My Grandfather had a fleet of Cats pulling cable scrapers in the 50's and 60's, all those operators were Catskinners according to him. Even in the early 70's when we were picking up rubber tired self powered scrapers he was still calling operators "Skinners".

    This is the machine I ran it with, Im gettin all kinds of modern and civilized and stuff, it took awhile to figure out how to set this thing up bein as how it has a little computer type thing inside it with about 20 different programs for whatever you want to do. Im not really impressed with it, but they wanted me to use it instead of running my 502D and buying the fuel, which makes sense. This is the first time I ever used it, so I guess there is a bit of a learning curve there, Im just used to running those old engine drives most of my life. I suppose you can teach an old dog new tricks

    They tell me that excavator bucket isnt gonna happen, the customer is gonna get a brand new one instead. I was lookin forward to rebuildin that one

    Nice progress! Shop work is a nice change of pace sometimes. Less rain anyways. I am in the repair shop now working on buckets, has been nice this winter. Have a 41 yrd P&H right now we are stripping. I have a Miller Dimension as my indoor machine. It is ok, but I prefer my 98 vintage Big Blue 600d instead. It is loud, but 10 times the machine the Dimension is. As far as a heavy repair machine it can outwork a 800 Duo, which we have as well. But, I guess they pay me to use this machine, so, I suppose....
    Me thinks you will be getting the new bucket, for partial rebuild soon enough. Seems like they come light duty when new. I would jot down some quick notes about the old one, so when the time comes to redo it you can hit the ground running.

    See if you can buy the old one, rebuild it & resell. Maybe back to original owner????

    Thatís a good thought but without a buyer at a confirmed price Popeye could be out a load of hours AND dough.

    I talked with Joe and Tyler about that late last week, we might do that but that decision is up to them. I talked with Tyler this morning and now this guy is kinda sorta waffling on buying that new bucket.

    Meanwhile until the next project comes up Im doin some work on my rig and catchin up with the honeydo projects at home.
