Well ok I need to find someone that I can trust and fill my shoes so I can step back out of the picture. And I'll be available to pick up more jobs as well.

Don't let me fool you...I didn't necessarily have this great booming business at age 24. I did have A LOT of equipment and bills to go along with it but that doesn't mean everything was running like clockwork, it still doesn't run like clockwork! I've been hustling since day one to keep everything running straight on a daily basis. I didn't take a regular paycheck for years in order to get things up & running. Basically I don't want to lead anyone on to think at 24 I had anything more than a ton of equipment on my hands and it was my job to figure out how to keep it busy and be able to pay for it all and gain & retain customers. Things have become easier over the years as I've progressed through the school of hard knocks and learned a few things, but I still take my share of hard knocks these days as well.

Here are a few pics of our new International 4300 dump. It's been treating us very well so far.

No we didn't. This winter we will be adding some LED body lights to the new truck.

We did swap bodies from our F-350 to the new GMC 3500....we put the stainless on the GMC and the black steel body on the F-350. We are currently working on phasing out all of our Fords and going over to all GMC/Chevy. I LOVE those Duramax engines!
