How long is the set up time? A lot of holes? I suppose that depends on how big of chunks you want to handle
This link should work.

Got them almost done today, just have to go back and do a few things (and move that last pile of crap from the top).



The path up to the truck, wheeled 4940 kg. up there, or 10890 lbs.

It's a crack shack rental, no sense making it too nice just for them to kill it anyway.

Is a Canadian payloader different from an American payloader?

If you would have stoped at HD by jumbojack, you could have gotten a mexican payloader.


I hope I don't have to do something like that ever again, allthough, for the right person/price, I might.

Re: I'm An Idiot


If its just a crack house rental. Why didn't you just build out over the existing steps? Do you see that crack in the retaining wall that the steps hid? You just removed its buttress.

I thought about building over the steps.... after I had it half busted out. D'oh!

The steps had sunk so far and shifted that they were already 3 inches from the wall.

The buttress removed itself.

That's the thing with rentals. The owners only want to fix what is broke now, not what will have to be done in a few years.
