New shovel

This is what I've been doing the last 7 days. Had to do a little dirt moving so I borrowed this from my brother. 621 CAT paddle scraper. Sure is nice to have the proper equipment to do a job. I would have been hauling dirt for years with my payloader to do the same amount of dirt moving. Probably moved about 1000 yards of dirt 20 or so yards at a time.

Has the door removal option for A/C. Only works on cool days though. Otherwise it's just smokin hot in that cab.

Stephen, I don't think the borrowing it is the problem, getting it to your place at 15mph might be the kicker.

Anyone who thinks running that thing looks like fun, just come on over and I'll let you have all the fun you can stand.

Looks like it's been there a while, the mud is dried on the tires and the ground is so dry it's cracking

It was actually only stuck for a couple days, but in 100*F weather it doen't take long. Oh and no, the ground was not dry, at all.
