We bought the B26 new last year about this time. Its a 2011.
I went on YouShip.com and had it brought from TX to NC. It was a kubota dealer down there.

The 3700 trencher is ours and its a 2004 in excellent condition. Only 400 hrs on it.

The last picture is us installing sleeves at the NC Real Estate Commission's Office in Raleigh. This
is right before they tore up all the existing asphalt at the office for the building expansion. We irrigated
the entire property.

@ Koster,
how's the irrigation bizz right now? A buddy of mine is looking at getting back into irrigation either on his own or with a better company than the one he's with now.

January is always somewhat slow, but overall we're growing our customer base every year.

We're steering more toward commerical than years past.

I would say its a good time to get in the business, just make sure he follows the new irrigation contracting licensing law. If he is starting his irrigation business from scratch i wish him luck. It can get off to a slow start i would imagine. Ive been going for 18 yrs now- irrigation only.

Does your friend work for a raleigh area irrigation company now or does he not live in the area?

He lives in Raleigh and has a lot of experience. He had his own irrigation bizz a few yrs ago. I'm hoping I can work up some sort of deal where he and I work together. I do ball fields as part of my bizz but that work has been difficult to get and make any money at. I also do commercial property maint. and I'm a sub contractor for a swimming pool co. Plus I do some tractor work and hauling as well.

I've irrigated about 9 ball fields last year. Let me know if you need help with any jobs you come across

Hey All, Thought I'd post a couple pics of our 1999 L3710. We bought it in 2003 with under 400 hours on it. It has less than 700 now. Used mainly for snow removal on the hill in the picture, part of our 1/4 mile driveway and bush hogging. I've also backfilled around 2 new neighbors houses saving them a ton of money. We till a couple of gardens with the 6 ft. tiller and put fences in with the 3 point post hole digger. We maintain the gravel drive with the box scraper and blade. I priced comparable tractors the other day and I think it's still worth almost what I paid for it. (about $15K with loader)
