Default Work Toys

I know there's a few guys that do construction work. So you guys get to play with a bunch of heavy equipment. So what does everybody get to play with at work?

I used to drive some larger forklifts, an overhead crane, and a dresser front end loader.

Everything CAT makes! Motorgraders, scrappers, loaders, excavators, backhoe loaders, skid steers, telehandlers, any tractor trailer with CAT power! Oh and we play with the Challenger line of Cat branded Ag tractors too. Pretty much every day.;)

I don't work construction, but in the summer I get to play with a '94 Correct Craft Ski Nautique (5.8l inboard) and a 2001 Bennington RL series 25' pontoon boat (muchus luxurious). I work for a home for adults with mental disabilities in Info Tech, but I also am the guy that knows the boats so I get to be the driver / BBQ cook 2 times a week in the summer.

Lets try this again...

Here's mine


First off is the good ol gator. I've taken this thing places that was insane. Always a blast, but sucks with the plow.


Here's our chevy dump. Has just over 40,000 original miles


This beater Ford dump has seen better days. But starts up every time; granted a little smoke


This chevy has been with the fairgrounds from the beginning and still gets beat up.


This is my favorite of the fleet of the trucks. Just got some new workhorse tires; I can vouch for the mud capabilities


Here's the "Nice" vehicle we have. This is the run around car.


This is my favorite tractor. Gotta love the radio and AC for those long summer days in the seat.


Ehh, not much to say about the case. Waiting for the upgrade in the budget.


Here's the other fun tractor. Still mastering the skills of working the ho


This Polaris Magnum is pretty impressive in hillclimbs


This 4x6 gator has seen better days. But is in the process of getting the radiator fixed


And this arc welder is dope. This sucker has been there for every project we've had outdoors. Fixed lots of fences, and built lots of gates.


And this little John Deere keeps on chugging. Been with the county 15years. And the only problem ever had was replacement of the clutch from normal wear and tear.


And you can forget our awesome Electric golf cart we bought from the University of Utah for $200. Some "new" batteries and it was good to go

We also rent small trac ho's and skidsteers on a regular basis. Not to mention 60 and 80ft lifts several times a year.

Now who says rednecks dont have nice toys??

Lets see what else is out there.

Don't get to play with them too often as I design them, but I do get to have fun during start-up.


This is how this tilter started life, fresh outta the fab shop. Those are 14 inch diameter hydrualic cylinders in the foreground, with a 11' and change closed length and a 21' and change extended length.



Here is that same tilter a month after start up:




A 1941 vintage furnace I am revamping for a customer in Canada:

I get to drive around all sorts of small CAT equipment... Mostly Skidsteers, Mini-Excavators, R/C Wackers, pretty much anything that'll fit inside a Semi Trailer. Then we have the multiple kinds and sizes of Forklifts. And there's the 3-wheel electric carts that we zoom around the warehouse on.
Been inside all sorts of Dozers, excavators, off-hwy dump trucks, semis, etc...
This was the coolest one that came in last year, and then was just here again a month or so ago:
Police Bomb Squad Skidsteer. (I had a thread about it a while ago)
