Nice pic Mrsops. I've been eyeing your truck after seeing pics of it before. If I did more work by the road, I really would consider a roll-off. I just don't see that truck going down several miles of muddy, rocky, twisting, steep, dirt roads to get to where I'm working.

However, if you want to donate it to the ARPI cause, I won't turn away a friendly offer. Call it a year-end donation and take the deduction. Then go get a bigger roll-off!

I don't know what you call rough roads but I have taken a tandem axle rolloff into places where you need a 16 ton hoe to pull it through. There is places where a 4x4 pickup would get stuck.

I should make postcards

A couple update shots. Nothing special work wise, but I thought you all might like to see northern VT in the midst of peak, leaf color season.

coopers- Eventually I will do some snow related work. I honestly haven't pursued that type of work too much yet because my land clearing work has kept me occupied through the winter. I also don't want to deal with nonpayment issues at this point in time.

When I do get into snow removal it will be targeting big commercial parking lots where loaders/ backhoes will be used. I won't really be going after the homeowner market.

Hi Mowen,

That demo awhile back was for another friend of mine. I was there to observe and run the machine.

We put the mulcher on a Cat 325CL excavator. The mulcher worked great, but we had problems with not being able to move the boom of the machine up and down with the mulcher running. I want to put that mulcher on a Deere 160 but I am hesitant once I saw the difficulties the Cat had running the head.

What is your connection with Paladin?
