    It' like second nature when you do it day and day out,sitting in a machine 10-12 hours a day helps too,some say it's easier to use a track-hoe,it might be for them but for me it's crawler loader/hi-lift,sometime's I will use a track-hoe when a situation call's for one.around here every one use's crawler loader/hi-lifts

    Nice work dirtboy! The company I worked for did everything with crawler loaders as well. All parking lot work so maybe a bit more logical, but some smaller jobs would have been easier with an excavator but they just used the 931 Cat. Much respect to operators who do good work, as it always made the grader work I did next that much easier.

    Very clean basements, Dirtboy. Nice work. Around here crawler loaders are pretty rare, mostly excavators, wheel loaders and plain dozers working together. Everyone you talk to says the undercarriage costs of running a crawler loader are pretty high with all the turning, spinning, etc. Like anything else, I suppose it's all in the operator.

    Mainly excavators and dozers around here. Some shots mucking out the end of a pipe that broke into a retention pond. We rented the haul truck from another company to help with the clean up of a new developement site.
