HD Expo in Las Vegas is a must attend event every year not only for seeing product but to reconnect with industry friends. A group of us took some time to do something a little different this year - play in the dirt! A group including Portfolio, Continental Contractors and Host Hotels got together at a place called Dig This Las Vegas Heavy Equipment Playground to learn to operate Caterpillar D5G bulldozers and Caterpillar 315CL hydraulic excavators. Everyone got to use each machine (air conditioned!) to dig holes and move mass quantities of dirt, coached through headsets by the Dig This staff. What a fun time with a great group pf people!
Now every time we see a machine at a site we mention that we can do that!
