Grader, Dozer and Scraper video – At work in front of Don’s house today

GOOD VIBRATIONS VIDEO – Sitting out front on my portch I could feel the ground vibrating from the dozer , grader and scraper. So we just had to put the appropriate music, ha,ha.
It isn’t everyday I can sit out in my front yard in the recliner from the living room with a six pack in one hand and a 20 piece barbe-cued chicken wing basket in the other hand and a big old cigar waiting for me and watch heavy equipment at work. , LOL Just kidding, I don’t smoke or drink alcohol. But I do over indulge with the chicken wings, ha,ha.
JOHN DEERE CONSTRUCTION EQUIPMENT- Everyone thinks I am partial to John Deere so this is kinda funny all three machines in this video are JD.
CAT NO. 16 GRADER PROGRESS- This morning I got the blade bent and the cutting edge and the side wear plates bolted to the blade. I also got the blade circle parts cut out and welded together. Next I will cut out the parts for the A-Frame.
FOURTH CAMPING TRIP – Tomorrow I will go get the motorhome and Deb and I will head out for another fun camping trip. We are going a different direction this weekend.
Hope you enjoy the Good Vibrations Video , it is in ( The Campbell Family ) section .

Don Checks out a Cat D-9G at the Antique Heavy Equipment Museum.

Here is one of three pics of this nice old Cat D-9G with a factory cab.
Glenn said he just bought it a couple weeks ago. I asked him if anyone even wanted these old Dozers anymore . He said not too much, but because this one had very low hours and the undercarriage was in excellent condition, he said it was a great buy.
He also said he has two people that want to buy it for three times what he paid for it. But he loves the old machines and collects them and said he enjoys keeping them.
There is a Cat D-8 sitting behind this one that he also just bought at the same place. If you go to the ( Cat Dozer) section in the photo gallery, you can see two more angles of this D-9G.
CAT NO. 16 GRADER PROGRESS- I have the front axle roughed in and attached to the frame. Now all six wheels are on it. Next I am cutting out the parts for the blade and the blade circle and the blade A-frame.
TEREX TITAN WHEEL UPDATE – This afternoon I will get the wheels redone with the orange centers. If all goes well, I will post the updated final look of the monster haul truck tomorrow.
