When someone comes back from Home Depot and says, “I got you some new pliers. They’re lineman pliers!” in an excited voice, be aware that there are many hours of wire stripping in your future. #thanksbutnothanks
John Deere 9520 8 wheeled AG tractor with what looks to be a aftermarket dozer blade. Found this big green guy right after a Hitachi 1200 and a Cat 390 that was a nice little combo. I have never seen a setup like this ever except the ox-block on the ktec tractors to push load but never a blade on a tractor.
WORTH THE READ!! There is a lot happening on this construction site in San Francisco, California. The following pictures illustrate an example of the specialized engineering and unyielding work that goes into developing and completing difficult city projects.
The 350 Bush Street lot in San Francisco had sat idle for nearly 25 years, but its building was being transformed into a 19-story high-rise for retail and residential use. This piece of history previously housed the San Francisco Mining Exchange from 1923-28 and the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce from 1938-67. The classical temple style front façade and native brick sidewalls was being preserved, while the interior and rear of the building had been demolished.
The site had to be excavated in order to make room for the building’s foundation and an underground parking garage. This led the contractor to turn to #rocksystems to help them with a solution for exporting the excavated material via a conveyor system, as the building is land locked.
The excavated material was first screened at 1”. The oversize material, full of brick and demolition debris, was then trucked to a recycler’s yard. The material that passes through the screen feeds to a surge hopper, up the conveyor system, and into dump trucks on Pine Street. This material was then transported to historic Candlestick Park to be used as fill. #sanfrancisco#citylife#heavyequipmentnation#heavyequipment#ibuildamerica#construction#constructionlife#constructionsite#americanmade#heavymachinery#engineering#engineer#hardhat#mining#excavation#caterpillar#contractor#materialhandling#conveyor#hopper#feeder#rocksystems#rocksys
