Bought a Chevy 3500 dump and a Deere 4720. Adding a second ztr and bigger trailer come spring. Maybe a 450 or 550 come mid summer and tracked machine. Leaf loader in the fall and a plow for the 2nd truck next winter

My Business partner/investor brought in a 2013 Chevy 2500hd duramax. So that covered a pick up..

My hopes for this year are:
3.5-5 ton mini ex
Single axle dump
Bush hog for the bobcat
John Deere/kubota 50-60hp tractor (more of a want than need)

I'd love to be able to get out of my 773 and into something with tracks by this coming fall.

I'm a small, but growing operation. I need/want: A bigger trailer 6.5 x 14 single axle, new chainsaw preferably stihl ms362, walk behind mower. A bigger truck would be nice as well as another ztr but those will have to wait.

I bought a house almost a year ago, chews up quite a bit of coin. Rewiring here pretty quick then blowing insulation into the walls. Going to buy a stove of some sort, just don't have enough to shell out for central air quite yet but need to get off baseboard heat. I pay cash for everything and try to do the work myself if I can. Invested a bunch in Milwaukee tools and bought a Honda FG110 tiller yesterday, party on! Might look for a small dump trailer this year or a 20 foot equipment trailer and the truck could stand to have an injection system overhaul. I think I'll have to put off buying a mini until next year, I refuse to make payments on anything so the bigger toys will have to wait.

Go hard, go fast, or go home

Bobcat S770
Working on a 379 Pete Quad and hiring a full time driver for it to loosen up some time for the boss man so he can do more bidding/meetings and not be stuck in a truck all day long.

Not much, we upgraded/replaced a lot of our equipment last year.

Mini ex,
sell my f250 before 200k miles and get a newer one,
maybe a dump trailer so i can have a second trailer
Also start the hunt for a tracked loader, possibly swapping the gehl for it.

The ultimAte goal is to get more done with less men. I hate having three guys with shovels.

Next year,.... 33k gvw roll off or larger and a pt30
