I don't think you would work for $160 per month.

I like the blog idea CCM!

Day 10, 9/15:
Met with another factory working on a ‘secret’ project. Secret meaning we won’t announce it until we have a better idea of delivery dates, etc. Side note on this one: We are well aware of and feel the pain first when the delivery dates for a model keep moving back. Our efforts to streamline both development and production procedures will help improve our performance in this arena but with that said, it is important that everyone understand we will always choose quality over on-time deliveries.

Additionally, if you ever have something you want to share, you can always e-mail or call us. We pride ourselves on our customer service as much as our model making and will always take the time to answer and explain to you why we are doing what we are doing.

Since he'd pay to have that job $160 / month would be a raise. Teeth

I have got the confirmation from CCM:

"The wheel loader pictured is not a CCM model"

This blog sets a tone of wanting quality parts, assembly and finish over set speed of delivery. I've seen that quality an detail in all the models of CCM origin that I've personally had contact with. Generally patience is well served with CCM.

Their delivery dates have slipped on items, but this is evidence that they do value their purchasers and are concerned.

Basti I think you're spot on! definately a Volvo,I have heard of big factories like these producing numerous models for numerous manufacturers,woudl be nice if they all shared the same glue Wink Teeth

those 666's look absolutely fantastic,you just can't have too many scrapers,its physically impossible,I can see myself placing an order for multiples lol

Why is "phonetically" spelt with a "ph"?

... It's better to be silent and thought a fool, then to speak up and remove all doubt

The complex of Newgrange was originally built between c. 3100 and 2900 BC,[2] meaning that it's aproximately 5,000 years old. According to Carbon-14 dates,[3] it is more than 500 years older than the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt, and predates Stonehenge by about 1,000 years.

Missed so far was this bit of news concerning the D9's...

Quote:
A few delays because of the raised expectations for this model but they will land in November.


That tidbit caused cancellation of my order Sad Perhaps I'll pick one up on Ebay when they finally do arrive.

The blog is such a shot in the arm for CCM and there customers, us yellow fans are so lucky to have a switched on manufacturer creating quality pieces, giving us updates and insight into the manufacture of there lines.

With the 666 & D9,s about to round off this years purchases i reckon it,s time to start canvassing CCM for the next models after the announced 992C, now keep in mind the theme is big iron from the mid 60,s to the mid 80,s and i think the 992C will have a partner down the track based on the options for a big truck from the previous vote, that said my votes are for:

1)No. 16 or 16G motor grader
2)983B with rippers (Open ROPS or enclosed, steel mill version? great if 2 versions were done and you could mix and match like the D10 to come up with different combo,s)
3)651E scraper
4)657E push pull scraper
5)528 log skidder
6)594H pipelayer
7)D9L dozer
8)825B compactor
9)660 scraper

There you go CCM, that should keep you busy for the next 5 years!!!!
