Steamboat Parkway Construction Equipment

In addition to huge mining equipment, I also like the 'regular' construction equipment used by home builders and other general contractors. These pieces of equipment are large enough to be called 'big' by people who haven't seen a 300 ton truck up close and personal.

When I saw that they were starting to work on the housing development by my house I just had to stop and take some pictures of the steel they had parked along the road. This area was originally slated for development in 2008 but the housing crash shelved most of the construction in Reno until recently.
