I know a little late, just had been busy with the girlfriend. But anyways snagged it with a 7.5ft Unimount final price $4,800. Picture doesn't give it justice, from the phone sorry but will pull out camera for some shots tomorrow. The guy had took the box off undercoated everything and brought it up the sides of the truck about 6inches, undercoated under all the fender flares, and also undercoated the front clip. The only bad on this pig is the tailgate, it doesn't open as it looks like the handle is just disconnected from the rods. Has the beauty rings to just didn't put them on, in the bed of the truck.

Been a while figure I'd update. Pics aren't in order at all.

When soldiers can't play in the dirt during winter, so what do we do???????



Play heavy equipment videogames. Not the real deal but learn/refresh the control lay out.

Picked up a mowing trailer, its a Falcon 14ft with a 2ft beavertail. I got bored with the grass being all brown decided to hide the previous owners oil stains.



Here's a night/morning out. The truck is my old boss's F550, that has a 6in lift to her. But behind all that snow drift is a door.

Here is a kind of cool picture, in the wash bay at Ft. McCoy cleaning BHL's.


Just a random picture of the 230 loaded.


One of my soldiers getting her truck stuck and couldn't get it out.


Yes they are still around


"South Garden" was my first jobsite that I got to run for the Army. The garden was huge ended up have around 2500yards of topsoil brought in, giving it a 8 inch lift to the whole area, even got a AAM out of the deal. Wish I had more pictures camera was on the fritz and phone was being a pile.

Oh yeah the HUMMV The mechanics wanted to do some wrecker training. We tried to high center it but it just climbed through the dirt piles.

Here is a few pics of some of my work currently going on. The timber wall was a pain in the arse, couldn't put deadmen in and had to drop timbers to frostline. On the way to the frostline, keep hitting old bricks and a buried concrete slab.

The hole was just a above ground pool, Just filling it in and placing sod over it.

The lastly was row Arb. shrubs planted along a property line.

No soldier deserves to be punished by having to run those old Case loaders, why can't they have some 621's?

Well case is slowly pulling those old ones back to reman them. At least were getting new 5yd CAT loaders to replace our older than dirt Mighican loaders, would have had it by now but the driver clipped a overpass, tweaked the cab and shattered every piece of glass.

Landscape Horticulture, I got started towards a civil engineering degree, but switched. I'm a heavy equipment operator for the US Army Reserve, though they want to start having me run jobsites as my packet for SGT(E-5) just went through. I will still be labeled as a heavy equipment operator though.
