    Sweet new claw/mag at junkyard

    The last pic is of an accident that happened right in front of me about an hour ago. Helluva bang and knocked the wheel right off that Chevy.

    That is a nice machine. Wheels instead of tracks is unusual. Is that your trailer?
    Give back more to this world than we take.

    Why not just hit the button on the dump trailer? At least one yard here in Denver has a wheeled one.

    Yes. 2009 PJ 14 foot dump. Has served me well, but the paint jobs are weak.

    I am going to have to check them out still never been there. Hopefully their pricing is at least a little better than the other 2 I frequent - actually I haven't been to DSMR in a while now. Just tired of the 3$ thing every other time and not recycling my non-ferrous there since their pricing isn't competitive for anything but tin.

    I stand corrected. I should have stated that they are not popular in the yards I have visited. The more I hang around here, the more I learn.
