Once you have racked up about 3000 hrs you will be doing some OK work :D

Not as easy as what people think haha

Builders write out chqs thinking pfft easy money

Its not so much the hourly rate,, its what value you get out of that hours hire you just paid for.

Slow down, drive smooth, keep your work area flat.

Bobcats are easy to drive - hard to master though

I wiped out an electrical bridge in my 20's at Fimiston Gold Mill ... they put me on the shovel after that ;)

Dead right there. When I quote a job I already know who is doing my excavation work. Costs can blow out depending on the operator.
