Swiss beavers    smiley_devilish    can grow up to 66lbs.
There appears to be population of less than 2000 individuals.

Imagine making an processor with the Cat 395, probably a bit slow on the swing.

Beautiful! Thanks for sharing.
 I was breathing hard and light headed/dizzy just looking at the hiking pictures.  What is the elevation on the trail near the lake?
The lake is at 1150m over sea, we (mi younger brother, i in the middle and a good friend from collage at the left) were at 1800m

Wow.. I bet their fab shop is something else!
It's like fantasy land. If my dad and brother wouldn't have hauled me away from that excavator in the shop i would a have slept beside her on the shops floor. if it's not in you blood you won't understand.
they have 30 full time mechanics. the yellow roof crane is rated 10tons. they buy 60-70 new trucks every 4 years. 
my friend told me when he still worked there: 
A truck came into the shop at 5pm with a busted wheel bearing, some mechanics stayed until the truck was fixed, and they always changed both sides on the axle although just the one side was worn, just in case. if they needed a part the called the truck dealer and he had to drove around at 10-11pm until the needed part was found and brought to the shop. the truck had to work the other day at 7am no matter what!  
if the 385 doesn't bill 1500$/h she stays home. they stock one set of new tires for each loader, the excavator attachments area had at least 70 diff. units for all sizes, i bet there was about 3 millions laying around in hammers, sheers, grapples,...
i will try to find more pics

That's my friend, 72 and still helping in the firm with the restoration of old machines for the museum 

 and here some pics from their firm museum (open to public for a small fee)




one of the owners (5 sons of the firm founder) is a model addict and he donated all of them to the museum. they have at least 3000 models there

Is that Norway spruce in the one picture?


Yes they are, they called different there though. i had to ask mister google

they had some exceptional douglas firs (not in the pics)
Are they quite like the firs we have our on the west coast?

Well, they own over 50 excavators and work mostly in demolition.
