Got a promotion this week at work, well kinda. The position doesn't pay any more but I get to move around company property more, which is better than being stuck in a back lot watching lime funnel down a hopper at a rate of about 10 tons an hour. The position carries more responsibility however as I have to load 2 HM-400 Komatsu dumptrucks hauling stock and occaisionally load an OTR dumptruck. Kinda makes me feel good about myself and my place at the company when they give you that sort of responsibilty and hand you the keys to one of these. [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LaGwd_nBkGk]YouTube - Komatsu WA500-6[/ame] This is of course not me in the video, just a good clear vid of the machine. Just the other day I was operating a 91' CAT 966F, which is roughly half the size of the WA-500. Anyway just though I'd share that, just got home from my shift and I was wanting to tell someone and didn't think it would be a good idea to call friends at midnight. Oh, just like to add that I will thank O'Bama (although I can't stand him) for dumping millions of dollars into Indiana's "Major Moves" project. That means a serious amount of overtime for anyone who works road construction or limestone quarry jobs.
