03 DMAX & Cat 303.5

Just got my Prodigy Brake Controller the other week had to put the ole girl to the test. It's my buddies 303.5C, his LLY overheated and he blew both head gaskets and warped both heads. So the LB7 had to come to the rescue. I was on the 90hp setting or #2 on my E-Power. I wasn't horsin it EGT's were highest at 1100. Pulled like a champ.

I tinted that 303.5C the other weekend looks bad a$$

Thats a cute lil mitsupillar. I've never seen them with cabs. We had some of the 302's. Even cuter. Cracks me up how small they are sometimes. Its hard to find tools in my box small enough for them sometimes.

I lived in CA for a year or so, you don't see certain equipment out there with cabs. The 303.5C is such a handy machine, he uses it for just about everything.

That pic makes me wish I had some pics of a Dam job I was on. We had 2 Cat 5230 shovels. Make that Komatsu look like a toy. The Cat 5230 is the largest excavator/shovel that Cat makes. They were loading Cat 789 rock trucks. Both are powered by quad turboed 3516's.

Her is a pic of a 5230 and a 789. They are fun to assemble and disassemble! Takes about 2 weeks for the truck and about 4 weeks for the shovel.
