I've noticed you guys don't have quick couplers on a lot (or most?) of your excavators, how come?
Idk my dad bought some of them on a whim only the M316c the M322c 315c 325cl and 365cl and 304.5 as well as one 235c have couplers. i wish they were on everything we had it makes life easier. Originally with all the B series equipment we were in rock alot and he was afraid of the couplers breaking as well as taking away from the power of the machine. now its not that big of a deal anymore.

we are going on 63 years. The company was started by my great grandfather in 1948 where he bought the first koehring 205 and has grown since so my brothers and I will be the 4th generation. The compay has grown the most in the last 15 years. as far as the state and city work its all what you can get bonded for. so we are able to do work up to 32 million. the biggest site job to date was a 20 mil dollar 80 acre site.

more pics
#1 Loaming one of the Ponds in Mansfield
#2 digging out a steam line at wheaton college
#3 loading the Dirt in the 345 bucket because there isn't enough room for the 304 to get rid of it
#4 equipment parked for the night
#5 digging out the Front stairs at a Dorm at Bridgewater state college we had tried using the 315 but they would not let us take the fence down. it probably worked out better this way with so many pipes in there

Awesome pics John keep em coming! I live within 10 mins of the shopping center and Stonehill College. It's nice to see some pics of familiar places around here. Your company did a great job on Mansfield Crossing!

PS- Does your family's company plow South Shore Plaza in Braintree?

no we don't plow the plazza but we worked there for 3 years on the expansion. that was a pretty good job i think it was 200000 sf of mall space and 4 acres of parking that we did.

That was an impressive (and long) job over at the plaza. It did turn out well though.

So what's in the pipeline this year for you guys?
