It's a Peach!
That thing will dig a 15' hole easily. There's your root cellar!
Might I suggest
-Earplugs. Those beasties make a great deal of noise.
-Safety glasses. Goggles would be better with eyeglasses. Stuff drops, makes a splash.
-Face Shield and Frame. Frame fits on a hardhat, shield is replaceable. You can put banana stickers on a hardhat.
-Steel toed boots. Steel toed rubber boots for the muddy parts.
I'm more than happy to (try to) answer any questions about running the thing. NOTE: I'm not a mechanic in any way.
Best advice to a new trackhoe owner: don't lets the kids borrow it for a date.

Looks great!! Monitor the seals as you take it through its motions - you want to know in advance if it's going to dump out a quart of hydraulic fluid every hour so you can contain it or fix the seals...
Make sure that anyone close to that thing knows not to aproach on the right side. It's a blind spot. Be sure they know to aproach from the far side at a safe distance and be sure to look the operator in the eye, have the bucket on the ground, not moving, and operator open the door before aproaching.
Congratulations Paul, looks like an excellent sculpting tool.
And to those inquiring-- Paul is damn good on a trac hoe !
