I was absolutely delighted to meet up with Tom Gardocki, aka the Dirt Ninja, during my time at the MaskinMassan show in Stockholm earlier this month, as he attended the show along with all the other North American guys who were invited over by Engcon. It has inspired me to take a look at some more of their videos starting with this one from Tom himself.
The Dirt Ninja is another one of the plant and machinery social media circuit’s superstars, with his You Tube channel alone attracting over 40, 000 subscribers and he is well known for his machinery related videos, especially of the in-cab variety. Tom is part owner of Manchester, New Hampshire based business New Era Excavation and often documents his work on the internet, which is great publicity for the business in general.
Tom’s Trimble Earthworks and Engcon EC226 tiltrotator combination is proving to be a fantastic addition to his 20-tonne class John Deere 200LC hydraulic excavator. In the following video we see Tom grading out a garage floor with a 1% pitch. Talking about his set up Tom said, “Using the Trimble and Engcon systems together is totally unreal, it really speeds up our work leaving almost no hand work to be done, its incredible!”
Check out the video to see for yourselves.
