This is the biggest piece I’ve operated to date – it is a Cat D6R and it is pretty fun. It was pretty hard to see at first and quite responsive – I was usually on the old clunker without air conditioning. When this big guy wasn’t in use I roughed in a few features. That is a wide track – it makes less of a mess when turning, and is a nice compactor. I don’t know what the R is, but Jacob (our shaper) used to make sure he specified the R when ever he was going to put it to work – but I am still a little green as not long ago I used to call diesel gas.
