    Seen around town!!

    Well one of my neighbors cornered me last week and offered me a job driving dump truck. I really wasn't looking for a job, but hey he offered me $15 an hour to sit on my behind. Who am I to argue?

    Any way one day last week I'm hauling stone for a local contractor, I come down the road and there sits two old rail cars across the street.
    Keep in mind this isn't an active crossing anymore. Apparently they used them for storage and they got away and rolled across the road.
    Lucky for them no one got hurt. They where trying to push them back with a skidsteer

    Today I was hauling dirt off a job site and these clowns come in with a car trailer behind an Chevy S-10 size blazer. Steve set the rocks on their with the excavator. They did wizen up though and unhooked it and went in search of a bigger truck.

    Did that little skid steer stand a chance against the boxcars? It seems pretty iffy, but you never know. (I once successfully towed a stalled and loaded dump truck uphill out of an intersection with a stock Jeep Wrangler. The driver was a bit surprised.)

    Oh yeah the skidsteer did ok. They where across the road completely when I first saw them and they where shoving them just fine.
