Thanks Krazy. If you come up here, I'll let you run the mulcher all you want LOL.

Nelson- yup, we ordered the machine with the Mclaren tracks. Should know how well it does in the snow in a month or so.

Yellowdog- thanks!

P.- I'm with dirtman on this one. I must have to raise my rates or come out to your area. That project, (mulching included), was less than $5k. I had less than 3 days of machine time in it.

Thanks Sean. I have about 415 hrs on the grinder now.

To be honest, other than getting into the 160 excavator faster, I don't think there would be much else that I would do differently. All my actions and the timing of my actions have lead to where we are now. If I changed anything, I'm not sure we would be where we are.

Here are some pics from a few weeks ago when we were grinding up some black mulch to stockpile for next year.
