I guess I want be spending much time here for a while. People at work have retired , fired and some are out sick so I'm being set up to the Chip Dozer. I'll probably be set up a couple weeks until my cousins back gets better (they're very rough riding machines). So the only time I'll be online is here on my slow computer at home when I'm tired and ready to go to bed.
This is one of ours when the company was rebuilding it after a fire at another mill. The impeller on the turbo shattered and we ended up running it out of oil and locking the motor up on the way to the garage last week. You should have seen the smoke and fire from the stack. The engine cost $40,000 USD and the whole machine cost more than 1/2 million dollars
The tires are slightly over 6 feet tall
