Excavator in the drink.

We wouldn’t be caught dead using Komatsu. We are Caterpillar all the way!! :)

That’s clearly operator error there.  We’ve gotten close to getting excavators stuck while building wetlands, but our two operators know how to get themselves unstuck and how to avoid trouble in the first place.  So many projects like this use lowest bidder who have no experience working “in the wet”. Our rookie is in his 11th year and the cowboy (genuine cowboy from western Montana) is in his 37th year and that’s all they do is restore rivers and create wetlands.

Definitely have solid ground underneath those.  I get nervous if I see mud half way up the tracks, lol.

A wide track excavator like the 318 or 320 place less ground pressure per square inch than you and I on one foot. And our operators test everything before we get too familiar with a new site by constantly sticking the teeth on the bucket into new places. We work in wetlands and drive through them on purpose which sounds odd. But we have all the necessary federal, state and local permits required for each job.
