This I think qualifys as the manliest dozer ever. 1350HP from TWIN cat motors.

Acco Custom Dozer

This shows you a Komatsu 575 SUPER DOZER next to the Largest Cat the D10 maybe a D11.

O.K. How about a lineman?

Have done primary power 25kv + volts. Now own company for telco consturction and maintance. I have a couple of 2 ton Ford bucket trucks with 42 ft. High Ranger booms but still have to put on the hooks, belt, and strap, and scurry up the poles form time to time. In mountains sometimes up to 55 or so feet up.

My daughters 1st. husband even better. Cell tower and radio tower construction. He climbs up sometimes several hundred feet and catches off the sections from helicpoters and attaches to assemble tower.

I was a boiler mechanic for my first 10 years in the Air Force. Swinging 48" pipe wrenches was a pretty manly occupation. I've since lost my man card as I'm an accountant now...

My dad was a lineman for years. Watched him out work guys half his age. He worked for PG&E in Calie. He worked with some manly men one of which could fly a chopper with a poll on it into any area at any time day or night.

MRM you do any rubber glove or bare hand work? My dad was doing that. That right there is manly 25kv in the line and the only thing between you and DEATH is a set of rubber gloves.

The Dozer next to the Komatsu is a D9... a D11 is almost the same size of the Komatsu, but the Komatsu has a few more HP's
I used to play around with a D9R, it was fun!
This is a D11:

Either a Komatsu 575 or Caterpillar D11....


What about driving a truck? A Caterpillar 797B or a Liebherr T 282B truck would be nice too...

Ignore Tango's pics...look at Asmels. Those trucks are 10 times larger.

I fought forest fires for 3 years. That was pretty manly. Not a smoke jumper, but a hot shot.


Haha. Asmel beat me to it...

Heck, Benning if that is what you are looking for, it's an easy choice.

Male Ballet Dancer.

The men will tremble and the women swoon. 'Nuff said.

I work with a TON of power lineman, and they are all really Alpha, but they aren't real sophisticated or articulate. They do well enough with the bar floozies and those types of females, but as for hitting top shelf action, I haven't seen it.

One person that comes to mind, and a great book you would enjoy either Skull or Benning, is Bill Mason who wrote his life story Confessions of a Master Jewel Thief. Great story. The guy was a 6' 4" cat burglar who robbed from the really rich and lived a REALLY high life.

I think being the guy who inspired Ian Fleming to write the James Bond series, I forget the dudes name, but that would be an amazing seguey to some tail.

And of course, being The Most Interesting Man In the World.... My Friends.

JD
