shove it. At least that is what I would tell them. I don't do well with heights. Ran on to a little highway work today and thought that guy looked like he was in a little bit of a tricky spot. Actually I have worked on construction projects and known a number of operators and they would not consider this difficult at all.

Your right Ted. I would not do well on that job either. I watched from a small boat as a big caterpiller building a road around Lake Platora in Colorado fell several hundred feet into the lake back in the late 50's. It was on an incline just about as steep. It was really disturbing to akid like me and I still can see it today in my mind.

Sure wouldn't want to try that with a wheeled shovel / loader.... Even with the tracks, I'll bet he had to use the arm and bucket to claw his way up there.
