    Hi, Rome K/G.
    I didn't mean that you, or anybody else specifically, should keep opinions bottled up. That is why I added this line to my last post

    Quote:

    "But who is to be the judge of that? "

    Unquote.

    It can only really be up to the individual whether they feel they ought to express their opinion or keep it to themselves. Constructive criticism, if properly received, can be very helpful - trubble being that many people are so thin-skinned that they perceive ANY criticism as derogatory. Sometimes, even people at whom a criticism was NOT aimed can get their hackles up just over hearing it said or seeing it written 'cos it's not lin line with their own thoughts.

    Personally, I suspect that the aim of that multiple push might have been to show just how quickly that scraper could be loaded if it had enough 'grunt' behind it. If so, I think they succeeded pretty well.

    Just my 0.02.
    You have a wonderful day. Best wishes.

    Deas Plant.

    I got tickled at the soprano voice of the green monster to be heard above all in the sea of yellow. Great job guys!

    Casey,

    Actually that was a "descant" (in classical music the sopranos depart from the tune and sing a harmony of their own above the rest of the chorus) you were hearing! I heard it too and that is what I thought I was hearing.

    For the dozer group, they appeared to be pushing in both the cut and fill which made it difficult for the "cut" dozers to get much of a load on their blades whereas the "fill" D9s were able to load completely up with little difficulty. I participated in the "big push" (six or seven tractors) in 2015 National Show in Edgerton and totally enjoyed the fun!

    I like to see the big pushes and quick loading of scrapers . Not only this push necessarily, but I cringe when I think about the possible damage to dead axles on the trunnion mounted dozer that are farther to the front of the pack when loading scrapers with multiple machines pushing.

    Awesome. Loved listening to the Terex or Ucalid could hear it above everything else. You think you’ve gotta decent sized Dozer with a 7, but then you see an old 9 in action and realise.. nope..
