Very nice, the plow mount on that dump looks LOW. Nice stuff though!

i was thinking the same thing

Yes, both trucks are cummins. Makes life easy when ordering filters, etc... AND yes, that rig is LOW and there is a boss rig sitting in the shop ready to replace that meyers rig.

Nice work and equipment. Nice to see someone from the area also. Besides Horsham what other areas do you guys work in mainly?

08-24-2010, 06:33 PM

08-24-2010, 08:20 PM
Nice work.lookin good.

08-24-2010, 10:38 PM
Sweet equipment, lets see some more pictures

07-15-2011, 10:44 PM
here's a few random pictures of the new dump, some work, etc..

07-15-2011, 10:50 PM

07-15-2011, 11:00 PM
everything looks great man keep up the good work. I m like that dump and trailer combo.

07-15-2011, 11:01 PM
one more walkway / entryway and might as well sneak in a picture of the weekend toys

07-16-2011, 10:11 AM
The work looks very nice!

07-16-2011, 08:55 PM
Work looks good. I saw your trucks a few times back in the fall up around Street Road and York Road when I was on my way back from class.

some late 2011 season pics. first is a before and after of a cleaning / repair job. Its amazing how many times we pull apart a landing to find the previous contractor failed to install waterproofing of any sort. :hammerhead:

02-14-2012, 02:58 AM
and a few pics of a late 2011 patio project before final grading and seeding could be done.

figured I'd add this pic too.. in case anyone had doubts that a VTS system DOES put more stress on the rear wheel motors.. well, it sheared all 8 studs off right at the hub. Although I do firmly believe that our VTS system is cursed considering we've replaced (2) torsion tubes, split bogeys, idlers, as well as repaired stress cracks in the tunnels.

02-14-2012, 09:34 AM
Your work pictures look really good! You have nice equipment as well!

02-14-2012, 11:27 AM
Everything looks great as usual, and that sucks about the VTS system.

02-14-2012, 12:30 PM
When the vts is working how do you feel it compares to a normal track machine/wheeled machine. Also did you buy the vts new?

02-14-2012, 01:30 PM
I bought the tracks used (barely) through a CAT dealer in Louisiana. As far as a review, I feel as though the VTS is a necessary evil. I would not want to have a dedicated track machine for snow use, so having that option to remove the tracks for the winter is invaluable. The 232 is a little underpowered for the system and you can feel it with only 56hp. As many problems as I've had with the system I would not hesitate to buy these for our next machine. They are a very open design making them good at self cleaning, you'll lose less production time due to rain/mud, and we are into a "tracked" machine for much less than it would have cost to buy a dedicated track machine with the added bonus of wearing out a $400 set of tires instead of $2000 worth of tracks during the winter.

I think this is a very true review from what I have heard from others, very good review.:clapping:

02-14-2012, 05:46 PM
Yeah I wondered if that was ETW's cummins as well?

02-14-2012, 06:11 PM
Unfortunately it was not. The truck was from a company local to me. It was also white when I bought it. That truck was great having the storage behind the cab and the 6spd manual with the cummins, but the truck weighed over 9k empty with an 11k gvwr. After replacing the injection pump for the second time, I gave up and bought the Ford.

I like your website, did you use that Wix site to design/make it? Checked out their site (their name and link is on the bottom of your site of course) and it seems pretty easy to get going and what not. Any info you can share on the whole thing would be great.

07-24-2013, 12:20 AM
It's been awhile since I've posted pictures, just thought I'd update things. Finally had a professionally created website among other things. Enjoy..

a few more of our current driveway project (almost finished), the new truck, and some happy employees at the end of a 103* day ;)

07-24-2013, 10:48 AM
Nice truck man. Looks like your running Toyos, correct?

07-24-2013, 11:09 AM
I need a driveway project like that! what was the price on that job?

07-29-2013, 08:45 PM
Not sure on the brand of tires, I'm not a huge fan of the mud terrain tread.. I bought the truck to be quieter inside than my Dodge and they hum pretty bad. To answer the question on the cost of the driveway.. I'd prefer to just leave it at 5 figures. Our production was much better than backyard projects since we were able to drop pallets right at the laying face.

07-30-2013, 01:57 AM
understandable. I have the toyo highways on mine and they are soft and make little noise. They probably have 25k miles on them and 40% wear

09-26-2014, 02:38 PM
Eh figured I would put up a few updated pics. A few completed hardscapes, the new M2 SNG truck (still missing the cab box), and a current natural stone job in progess.

You'll love the SNG system. I have one set up on an International 4300 and it is a game changer and money saver for any descent sized project.

nice work!

07-22-2015, 12:50 AM
Haven't posted in quite some time and thought I'd share some of our growth over the past year...

We've been busy hiring and adding iron..

07-22-2015, 01:03 AM
Here are some photos of our current large build project.. It's a complete front entry plaza project for a private school. This should be a neat project since it includes over 2000 sq ft of 1.5" thermal bluestone, poured stairs and walls with bluestone veneer, electrically heated stairs and plaza, as well as all the site work, drainage, etc..
