Haha, it will have A.R.Plante written on it when I can justify the payments of a half million dollar machine with a lot of work.

zmaster- If you go back several pages there should be a pic of the 350. My dad drives that truck so I don't get pictures of that one too often.

Advanced- Haha! Grab all the trucks you can and head over to that site. They have 3 years of blasting so I'm sure they'd be willing to give away a few boulders right now.

Love the pictures! I am trying to expand to doing larger jobs and are curious how you market yourself to other contractors, consulting engineers, bog owners etc? What types of things would you say in a cold call? Thanks!

Nice pictures there ARPI......I wish people around here would see the value in doing that type of work/preventative maintenance. I think I would really enjoy it. I have 3 machines that could accommodate that type of "mower". But no one around here seems to be interested.
