Interesting stuff
Equipment branding. I think most manufacturers have lost their competitive edge. All equipment today have the same features, electronics and hold your hand assistance. With or without grade assistance I would like to think I'm one of the last 7 or 8 guys that can look at a job give me a benchmark and a couple of stakes and do the job by eye without any wasted motion. I am not very fond of any of the new equipment especially mid size dozers with hydro static transmissions. I believe they lost their "feel". I understand in tight quarters fine grading they are the bomb. But, in bulk excavation I am not sure. So, my point is equipment has become what the truck manufacturers have been for a long time ,only a nameplate. If the engines and powertrain are similar and the electronics are the same ,all that's left is dealer support. Who is going to get your parts faster and who will get a mechanic (sorry technician)to you when you need one ? My newest piece of equipment is 10 years old and performs absolutely perfect. Minimal downtime and when something does go wrong I can repair it .

Employee firing. Let me understand. A business owner directs an employee to go into an unsafe trench. I am assuming the trenched was not shored or benched. If this is the case I support the action against him. I have been a contractor for 51 years and have NEVER had an incident. Now that's not saying I didn't take chances in my early days, but I never put anyone who worked for me in danger. I was one of the first contractors in my area to go through the OSHA excavation and trenching competent person certification and I was fortunate to have two gentlemen teach the class who wrote the technical language for OSHA. It enhanced what I practiced and I learned valuable information which I still practice today.
