An empty thread is a lonely thread...

Nothing important to share except a few photos of my new arrival!

(Now it just needs 3 phase power! The Vermeer machine is in front of the building ready to dig the trench for the electrical line - we should be up and running after Christmas.)

Note the 2 10hp Becker pumps in the background. Hopefully these will be powerful enough to keep material in one place...

Congratulations on your new machine...looks great in its new home.

I'm just a little jealous of your two Becker pumps!

Congrats on your new machine!

Wow, that's a little step up from the Stinger I huh? Nice! What a beast.
Nice rack of Beckers also. That's should do you real good.

Last month I had 3phase installed. I was a bit sticker shocked on the price of the panel! Only cost me $1200 though for the power co to run about 200' underground and 500' overhead. That was a relief.

Keep the pics coming.

At those distances 1200 is a good if not Great Price, Would have been in the 10k+ for me

How's the machine setup coming along?

Running the trench alone was $5,500 (~250').

Still waiting on the electrical contractor quotes to return so I can get the transformer pad poured, then transformer, then wire to building/connect machine.

In the midst of all this fun I took off 10 days to be w/ the family and surprisingly when I returned nothing had changed / improved. :-) (1 man shop.)

Back in the shop now and begging electricians to get it hooked up!

Sounds like the progress on my shop this past year. Turtle's pace. Keep us posted on when everything gets crunk up.
