    Adam, It looks to me that the pivot of the thumb may have been welded a little to close to the bucket giving an incredible amount of pressure where the bucket flares out.

    The operator may be a little heavy on the hand, Putting a death grip on the rocks might be the problem.

    As always your truck looks good.

    As far as work goes this is the slowest I,ve been since I started in business back in 1988.

    We still have work but the profit margins arent like they use to be.

    Good work. I've seen the truck before but still like pics of nice equipment.

    Slow work here too, side work seems slow. At my real job the work there never changes...Trucks/ equipment are always broke down

    Portable,I thought the same also with the location,it was installed by the cat dealer out here. And the owner/operator did tell me he is heavy on the grip and also has been pushing its limit with some large rocks.

    ADM,
    It will be busy here for a while anyhow. There is still a bit of a building boom going on, but I think the high prices will cause it to slow down here too.

    Your truck is still looking good. Have you got the bugs out of it now?
