They are also "suppose" to be even good for smaller aggregates. I ran one a few times for belknap landscaping years ago and I know they make quick work. I'd say you could accomplish with 3 guys what would take 10 with wheel barrels and rakes. Just curious if anyone considered it. Probably could do that as a business all by itself.


I saw a tree moving company out of alton moving a tree in gilmanton the other day. Never thought I'd see much call for it. Let me tell you though its something to watch the huge tree spade attaced to the back of a truck uproot an entire tree like its a weed.

I know a guy in Mass that has 4 truck blowers and 2 trailer ones.
Theres also a guy in Milford that does it as a second business, the first business is maintenance.

I am, along with 2 other un-named individuals are considering buying one to "share" and make it more affordable to all of us.
This year I have really become more "mechanicalized" with purchasing a mini excavator w/ tilt grade bucket along with other tools to make life easier, cutting back on labor and workmans comp.
Sorry for the late quote, never get time to sit on here and browse.

you have about 1 week left to hydroseed after that you need to wait until atleast the end of October to do dormant seeding. By doing this you wont get germination but the cellulose should hold and protect the seed. If you get germinate and its minimal, the seedlings will be harmed by the first frost and you wont get much if anything, fall or spring.
