I'm not sure........ but it is fun to crawl over, and through the boulders. I get a rush every time I sit in it, and start to move the earth.

What kinda mileage do you get with that thing?

That is a serious machine. Do you think you could bring it over and smooth my yard out a bit?

How exactly do you get into that line of work... It's something I always thought about doing. I never outgrew my Tonkas.

That must be a hoot Blu, I was interested in doing that but construction shuts down over the winter up here so I went with big trucks.

I just went to work for someone hiring dozer operators, and had a couple of bad experiences with some companys, but now I work for a very good place, that really appreciates my work. It is like anything else, practice, practice, and more practice...........

Thank you every one for your comments, and sorry about working 12hrs a day, and not always being on here. I even have considered selling my YJ, as I don't seem to have much time to play with it. On the upside, I just got another dollar an hour raise, and they decided to pay me an additional $40.00 a day for hauling fuel, for the equipment, in my truck. This should definately increase my pay enough, to where I won't have to work 72 hours a week. I should be able to take a full weekend, to play..........

Thanks Tiny, for putting me in the appropriate category. Sorry about not thinking about "Off Topic". You take could care of my mistakes, and I appreciate it.

I've got $267.00 in my Paypal account. I'll send it to you and come down to get the jeep. J/K Axel we all have times when our rigs sit longer than we'd like. Some are just longer than others. Just think though that anytime you want to go out and get in that thing you will have a bad ass rig at your disposal.

Anything you build in your back yard will just get washed away. YOU GET NOTHING.

Dude, what a cool way to make a living! I have a little experiance with your tools, and I think it is an art, that most people don't get, but a true "operator" can do some awesome things.

The equipment is only as good as the operator! The most powerful well built machine isn't sh__ without a good operator.

That is so true. I have seen operators that couldn't hit the ground with a shovel, and ones that are pure artists. Doing finish work, and being good at it, is priceless.
