yea i frequently find myself driving the skid in the yard and either
A. using it to haul out and in material to the truck or street
B. load 3 wheelbarrows til we're done excavating then bringing it to the street to do the same thing with base matl.
the worst thing about patios? they're in the damn back yard!!! people only see the mess and commotion and not the beautiful finished product
Your issue lies with the fact that you still use wheelbarrows, get rid of those damn things and spend some money on hydraulic ones and get rid of an employee to save you the money you just spent. You'll thank me later.
