I have yet to see one working in a field where I live. This is the only time I see a machine this size in person.

It's a leftover 2020 389 long hood. Just got to 3000 miles yesterday. Sadly I get the feeling this body style wont be produced much longer. Same with w9's. Hopefully we can run this truck till I retire......in 35 yrs.

I think the scraper was just waiting to hitch a ride to a new job. They were using high lifts and dozers around the edges to final grade this culdesac. I dont know the excavation terms to know what shouldering is exactly lol. I ran a high lift one time and broke the side board off a truck because I forgot about the knuckle as I dumped the bucket lol.

Shouldering is taking the ditch and moving it away from the road the putting the material on the in slope of the ditch and and building a safer wider shoulder. We use dozers and excavators but if the lane is also getting widened we use 627s if it’s dry enough. What’s a high lift? Is that a pay loader or excavator or something? Curious because I haven’t ever heard anything called that up here. And I have smashed my fair share of sideboards haha

It’s an mt515d, it’s a 120 horse tractor pretty much identical to a Massey Ferguson and I believe a fendt though I have never sat in a fendt. I really like it, it’s my planting tractor I’m slowly buying some smaller farms and have been upgrading my fleet, I need a bigger planter and a 2-300 horse tractor for tillage and some tillage equipment so I can continue to farm and work construction. Basically I’m playing real life farm sim, haha

I had to google komatsu d66 to see what else it's called. I guess a track loader? Everyone says high lift around here. Brother in laws family had like 12 of those things in a 2 man operation lol. I guess you gotta break stuff to learn hah
