ARP I was just wondering how you got started in your business?

I would like to start up my own excavation business after high school and all that.

Hey guys. Sorry I've been quiet for a bit- I've been super busy and the last job in NH lacked good email and internet access for checking back in. I got everyone's PMs and will respond to them shortly. Just need to get caught up on some work first.

Anyway, we finished up the NH job and moved the equipment to Topsfield, MA for an estate beautification job. Here are some pics of the end of the NH job. Ended up taking out 8 truck loads of logs. I may also be going back up there this year for other jobs of similar natures, as many people in the neighborhood were impressed by the finished product.

Here are the pics of the logs and some action shots of them being loaded out. I was impressed by the way the 50D was able to handle the loading chore.

Pictures look great Andrew. What did you end up doing with the logs? sawmill, fire wood?
And what will this estate beautification entail? Sounds interesting .
