I can very well understand... I did heavy equip. training in the army 55-57 and operated several dozers up to and including Cat. D-7s...
Well in the 80s I did a substation in Bray Town Tn. on St. Hwy 116 (part of the Devils Triangle) out of Brushy Mountain St. prison... I got along good with the contractor and he found out I was a bit of a heavy equipment operator and invited me to operate his International TD-25 dozer, well I got on that sucker and started to push dirt and it was like I was on a barn roof with one leg on one side and the other leg on the other side, talk about being intimidated, was I ever, I got off that thing and told him I did not want to fool with that monster again, way too much for me...lol...
That was the worst I have been ever felt intiminated...
