Yup,...In the seat...,though replacing them with something more absorbent for the first 100 hours or so crosses the mind when you first get in :-\

Just a guess, But I bet that thing costs 100,000$ or so.

The '09 would be over the 250k mark "bare bones"There's,just by chance,a few locally for sale,contact me at [email protected],for well under 100k,and they're 800 hr machines,no typo,800 hrs!A few fixer uppers can be had,that can do the same of thing for under 20k.But back to my brilliant idea,3 or 4 guy's with claims around the same area,split the trucking,buck up for some fuel 'n' grub....and beer(for after work) We climb it up that nasty gulch and I can dig you a hole 4x4x20'deep just about anywhere,through the 5' deep creek,over the log.....Set up a spar tree cable dealy,and "fly" "drybulk bags" of your afternoons work right to your sluice,trommel,flat work area,back door of your camper...Tell me I can't and I will.... It's so lonely being "THE ONLY GENIUS"    p.s. Kaiser Canada is .....

That is way too cool.Is there a video link.That terex looks much bigger.You wouldnt want that.This spyder you could airlift with a helicopter into nowhere-nowhere land.Crazy,does it break down much.With a 800hour machine I would guees they be real dependable.

Nice hoe. Wow. It would work for placer. Would be great for doing mining reclamation to in BC/Yukon. Lots of work for that. Have fun.
