CAT 365B L ME, D8R, 725's doing some major earth moving

 The excavation process begins on creating the foundation of a new high rise

The Caterpillar mining crew busy at work removing this hillside

992G loading up 777D in about 3 scoops and the D11R above shaving down the hillside

Crews adding a new water pipeline that will soon supply hundreds of homes under

Because of the depth required this cat 375 is being used to dig the trenching for this
new pipeline. (CAT 375 shown here with welded on smooth blade over teeth to get
create a clean flat underbody that the pipe will need to sit on)

A different portion of the same new pipeline previously pictured. Here a required treatment
filter system is being applied to the newly installed pipeline (If you look in the background
you can see how the crew with the 375 excavator have already layed all straight pipeing
and are now curving to the left)

Picture shot real quick while driving by this lumber recycling plant

Huge stones are being loaded into this 777D not for mineral purposes but rather to be the
lining of new storm drain channel not far away

Here the 777D is dumping those stones along the assigned places of the new storm
channel (Not shown but CAT 375 ME is more to the right placing the massive stones
exactly where needed)

With all these new water pipes being installed we forget that gas also has to brought in
by pipe. Thats whats shown here these 2 CAT 325's are busy digging, teamed up with the
416C backhoe to install some new yellow gas pipelines

You cant build a big strong retaining wall without some deep pilers. Sennebogen ABI
shown here drilling the holes needed

Crews rush to the scene here, one breaking teh asphalt while one digs and another 
removes the dirt to fix a split waterline in the busy temporarily closed street 

It's service time! Even huge monsters like this 365B L need their scheduled oil changes
