TomG's Work Photos

Hi guys, I have a few other threads on here about various things but I thought I'd start a photo thread with pictures from work.

A little about me: I work for a family owned and operated hardscaping company. We specialize in Paver walkways, patios and driveways and retaining walls amongst other things in the hardscaping world. We also do some light excavation, grading and clearing work. Currently i am the head foreman and equipment operator for the company. I have been on equipment since I was 4 years old.

Also I have a YouTube channel and Facebook page that I post to regularly. I have video of time lapses of jobs, how to videos, equipment tricks and just regular videos from work. Links to both can be found in my signature.

Now for some pictures

A few photos of hardscaping projects











Our fleet of equipment and trucks.









A few project photos:

Cleared some trees and brush along 2 stone walls.













Clearing, grading and loaming over a leach field. Customer wanted everything cleared because the roots were growing into the leach field.

Thank you for the kind words. Yes I do have quite a large thread in the hardscaping section. Its called "TomG's Photos" if anyone wants to check it out. I figured I'd start one here of all the non-hardscaping work I do.

Love the trucks, looking for an international just like your white '90s one. Any specs on the trucks? Is that a stainless or aluminum dump? How does it hold up to concrete and rock etc

alldayrj: That is a 1996 International 4700 with a DT466E motor. 6 speed. 25,999GVW. Dump bed is steel. It has a few dents in the bed but had held up well. Its a great truck. I can honestly say it has never been in the shop. We replaced the clutch this year for the first time, and we have broken a few axles over the years, climbing out of gravel pits in low gear. Other than that nothing. We also re painted it a few years ago.

T_S_S: The E50 is great. I really like it. We do a lot of lifting with out mini's. We set a lot of granite steps and stoops. The E50 is a beast lifting. It will lift more over the blade than our T300. It also had great digging power in my opinion, and is a very smooth machine. I have had a few problems with it, mostly with bad steel and all the issues have been fixed/replaced by my dealership for free. Even after the warranty was up. Also the cab is not the greatest, a few changes could make it really nice. But performance wise I don't think you can beat it for a 10,600lb machine.

Here are some more pictures of our trucks for the people who were interested.









On the two newer International 4300's we have swing gates. They are great for dumping stumps, brush, and for loading pallets of materials in the bed.

If the 96 was an auto i would try and buy it, thats an awesome truck. Any issues with the fold down sides? i feel like they are kind of delicate.

My bad, thought the grey dump was aluminum.
