We've been crazy busy Sean- and this weather has definitely been a help! Mulch has picked up real early for us, we have done a few contract grinding jobs, picked up a bunch of work for the 160 doing clearing work, and we have also just added a F350 and a new trailer to the mix. I hoping I have a chance over the next few days to get some pics up.

How have things been up your way?

Same as you! Crazy busy here Doing excavation, demolition for concrete restoration, parking structure, and bridge rehabilitation contractors. Picked up a few very specialized jobs to do this summer that we were the only contractors to bid on. Looking at purchasing a 8 tonne ex on wheels , and a 225 hitachi . Are you busy next weekend I might be heading down your way...

That's great to hear you're picking up those unique jobs! Now we just need to see the pics from them ;-)

I will be at my mulch yard on Saturday grinding from 7AM til mid afternoon. I'm then going down to CT with my gf for Easter. I'd like to meet up with you if possible, just let me know what your plans are.

Here are some photos from a grinding job where I went in for a day and ground up some bark from a firewood operation.

Very cool ARP. Glad to see the grinding is working out well for you! Looks like a very finely textured product? Are you dying it too?
