I am posting these pictures for Campmb of his Custom 335 Demolition Excavator with a Dynaset pump system for dust control.

Campmb great talent with that customization, is this a machine you run? Your hydraulic lines are very realistic along with your dust suppression set up.
Ken thanks for posting.

Wow, those lines look amazing. I've done some hydraulic line work before and it's a tedious PITA. This right here took a huge amount of patience, planning and skill to complete, very well done.

Thanks Ken for posting for me. Ken also did all the leg for me finding a suitable water tank for me. Had to do some work on it to cut it down to size. It’s based on an Dynaset pump system for dust control. Thanks Craig, Steve, Clifton, and Ross for the kind words. No Steve l’ve been retired from the Operating Engineers for 5 years. The only dust control I do now is running a vacuum cleaner. Got to take pictures of a 335 a friend was operating a while back, so that helped with helped. Mike

Barkerjoh, those are all brass lines. .55mm and .81mm. Hose protection is 34 gauge wire. You get a spool at a craft store and start winding. Mike

Just when I thought I was done, Ken called me on the phone and asked, “What’s a demolition machine doing without cab and windshield protection?” Of course I couldn’t think of an excuse, so he agreed to help me out. Its great to have good friends. Mike
