Well, you look and tell me if you don't think it looks a little like a dinosaur. This photo was taken on Sunday last, down by the Oatland Fire House.
Here is a look at the lubricating instructions, placed right where it can be seen by all the operators. I suspect that in a monster like this machine, good lubrication is important.
And here, in yellow, is a smaller, three wheel, machine for perhaps doing trim work. It is parked right behind a white "Bobcat" or "Skid Steer".
All very impressive to me. And, the equipment is for milling down Route 38 so that it can be resurfaced. I wonder if this is part of the Administration's public works projects that are supposed to be spreading money throughout the economy, in order to stimulate spending, which will cause businesses to place orders to refill inventories and lead to those who have major capital investments replacing older equipment that has outlived its usefulness. If Keynesian Economics works, now would be the time for it to kick in, giving that the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell to 10,009.75. Granted that there is nothing magic about the 10,000 mark, per se, but to penetrate it would have a bad psychological impact on the markets and thus on the nation as a whole.
