Man, I leave this thread for a few minutes and it turns into a fantasy thread for all the dirt guys here

krazy- Glad to hear things are picking up for your business! Enjoy the ride now!

bobcat_mans185- That's my plan, a triaxle with a 25-30 ton pintle triple axle tag. I thought about going with a truck and tractor, but I would loose the ability to get in and out of some jobs quickly as well as mobility. I can get a triaxle into a lot of jobs where a dump trailer can't access.

Here are a couple more small landscaping jobs I just finished up.

First one, I had to mulch down a bunch of vegetation and small trees, strip the roots out, regrade with some loam, and place some trees for a landscaper that will be placed in the ground in a few days.

Next up, a similar vegetation clearing job. Ripped out a bunch of weeds, loaded them out, and spread a skim coat of loam in preparation for more work to be done by a landscaper later on:
