Tractor Pulling Marble Slab
We get deliveries of waste granite and marble from the local stone quarries and carving sheds. This pile is on one of our landings where we can pick through the materials for the pieces we want to use before pushing the rest over the edge as fill. The resulting fill bank is then still available in future years for picking.
The tractor is gently sliding a huge slab, probably 3,000 lbs, of white marble from the back of the pile so we can cut off a piece to use in the bathroom. This slab was just up at the top of the tractor’s capacity to lift once we got it closer and were able to properly rig it with chains and pads.
