I have the foundation for a 40X60 ready to go right next to that one. Just have not got around to kicking down to put that one up yet. I want to get everything inside.
What do you keep in there now just the trucks and skids? How much did something like that run you over there?

I'm pretty sure that's a Vermeer BC2000XL w/ loader. 20" capacity!! Literally a whole tree chipper almost for use residential guys!!

What engine option did you get and what's the horsepower??
It's the BC 2000 but not the XL. Has the Cummins 200hp. the XL has CAT motors and different drum blades.

looks like a Texas- rigged setup! Ranch hand is good stuff for the money.

I need to make more money and get a professional decal job on my trucks. How the heck do I get motivated?

I'm liking that chipper Yellow. About how much did that run you new? Has it been a maintenance intensive piece of equipment for you? Would you mind telling how much you charge for that piece? Please PM me if you don't wish to share rates publicly.

Thanks!

Here is a pic of both my personal truck and work truck. The tundra now has chrome door handle covers, mirror covers, door posts, and tailgate latch. I also installed a l.e.d light bar underneath the tailgate.

My first single axle dump truck and my old 751. The rest of the equipment belonged to a friends family run topsoil business. We built an awesome track in the back 40. That picture brings back memories.



I sold the single axle and had a tandem dump truck before buying the 5500.



My 2500 HD and 1500 Chevrolet, daily driver.



My future daily driver, once i get all those snow clearing cheques in the mail...

Boy howdy, I'm with you on the German cars. I miss my German ride, don't miss the repairs, though. 3 more years and I'll have me up another Audi, complete with warranty next time around.
