Thank you. it was cold, but beautiful. I was paid to 4x4 and work. It was so Cold it once took me 18 hrs to get a machine running.
Block frozen, Battery's frozen. In the end we just let the machines run 24/7 rather than shut them off. I would have my truck running, heat on full, heated seats going and when i could not stand it anymore i would go put my fingers by the heat ducts.

It was even more fun to drive all the heavy equipment. I drove everything except the big red multi million dollar Excavator. the size of it is enormous. The 777 rock truck is enormous, but you put it beside the Excavator it looks small.

I'm not here

i don't think they did a few had a problem but not to many. our biggest problem was hydraulics. food was good. Ate well, but worked 18 hrs a day so no time to enjoy movies or tv or pool table etc.. eat in truck on the go and doing laundry and showering and eating dinner and sleeping . never ate so well. wish i could go to a kitchen like that right now and have 20 deserts in front of me. (20 at 2 am) the mine was out of fort st James 2 hrs north into the mountains. I operate front end loaders at work among other things and we do not have icing problems do to our environment.
