and yeah I think it is time to lay off mrusk.. I was looking at old threads yesterday and he had posted one about buying a brand new cat skid and he was NINETEEN!! So he is obviously capable running a business and at that he is really good at it.. and in my opinion he does great work and he does alot of it..

Also how many guys that are his age that own fullsize excavators and are doing as good as he is? So why dont you guys just lay off of him he has caught crap so long on here it isnt funny...
looks like mrusk has got a new lil buddy...


why would you sub out the electrical on the pillars. that is the easiest part of the job. my little sister could do that. but anyways lets see some more pics.

DVS A 20 ton excavator might not help you with the fall clean ups you will be doing this year. So I can understand the fact, how you can't undersatand how it makes sense for my company to own it.

As a fellow Mason By Trade i am glad to see some real masonry work goin on out there besides all concrete paver patios everywhere... also Rusk it is nice to see that someone else actually puts in frost free footings for veritical masonry work and dos it the correct way! What psi do you guys pour your wall footings and also what you facing that block with?

The concrete footing is 3500 psi. We are veneering the pillars with cultured stone.
