I like your jobsites, clean.
We normaly go at least go 6"..But we have never had a problems with the edges "rolling" when we go less like in the pic's.

I have been doing it for four years and my dad for 15Yrs. and all the my workers have been doing it for atleast 9Yrs.

But Thanks!

Nice Pit! How old is it? How many employees do you guys have? Looks like it may be time for a dump truck in the near future!

Great pictures there! Like all the paver and wall jobs too. I can't believe you took that fork lift off pavement to lay those pallets out. Lol I thought they just sink and have terrible traction as well. Who's white dump truck is that? Guess you sold the stander cuz its not in your sig, you really like them wb's? For me I can't stand walking all day but I guess with the velke's it ain't so bad.

I had to keep the forklift moving on the grass if not it would get stuck. But its great for unloading. Yes, I sold the stander im looking into getting a ZK or Turftiger next year. The walk behind is great lots of power with the 18hp Honda.
