Was that your grinder for sale also? How is that part of your business doing?

Yes, our grinder is for sale as well. That part of the business has been doing ok, but I am finding that I can produce our mulch in other ways without tying up capital in the grinder. We are starting to go after some material reclamation work (screening and crushing) as well as some larger land clearing jobs that require a grinder bigger than ours. Since we have access to a couple larger tubs and horizontal grinders through some companies I partner with, we want to redirect the capital we have in our grinder towards a screening plant on tracks or a piece of land to establish a bigger material yard.
