Hello again,
Im looking at a landfill cell to be dug Roly can you tell me what kind of yardage i could move
per day with say 3 tractors 1 D8k and 463 and 2 D8h cat 80 pan the ground is yellow brown clay and then you get into a grayclay not shale this stuff is really tight it will support rigid frame trucks like a cat 769 the area to be excavated is around 400x600 x 10' deep which is a rectangle shape running north and south has existing landfill to its north and east side so the south end gets 400' dam and the west side is where to put the spoil dirt actually it would be the from the middle of the westside down to the south end and the tow or side of the stock pile has to be kept at least 50' from the cell your imput would be great what knid of funds do you guys get for something like this.

Hi fiat41b - been following your correspondence with Roly and am wondering if you have ever seen the Cat publication Fundamentals of Earthmoving ? When I worked for Cat in the sixties it was the "bible" for all work measurement and productivity calculations. I still have my copy "revised - May 1965" and attach a couple of scans to give you an idea of its coverage. I don't know whether it is still available in updated form but it may be worth trying to get hold of one.
