MLS equipment / work photos

Thought I'd create this thread as a place to post some pics from this season, and hopefully a place I can add more in the future as the company grows.

I started out on my own in 2005, right after graduating from college with a diploma in landscape architecture technology. I do mostly design / build projects, and have learned a ton since I started.

Pic 1 - 05 Silverado 3500, my personal / work truck now. Love every minute I spend in that thing.

Pic 2 - 97 IHC 4900 with switch-n-go. 33k GVW, 230hp DT466e, 170,000 miles. Took this pic early this spring before I had the fenders, mudflaps and bumper on. Debated a lot initially about whether to get this truck or just a dump trailer, and I can say now that I can't imagine not having it. Will spend this winter getting it set-up just the way I want, with toolboxes, hitch, lettering, etc and maybe a new paintjob in the company colours.

Pic 3 - Just a pic loading up some boulders in a field down the road from my place. Bobcat had just been painted and I was waiting for the decals to come in.

Pic 4 - Bad day. . .Tow truck sure makes my truck look small there.

Pic 5 - Best purchase I ever made. Took this pic shortly after I re-painted it and put decals on. It has about 3,300 hours on it now and still going as strong as the day I bought it. Just bought a new s205 for the bulk of my work, but plan on keeping this machine around untill it gives out.

I'll have to take some newer pics soon as most of this stuff has been lettered now. Will post some pics later of some of my work as well. Let me know if you wanna see any more pics of anything.

I'll get some pics of the 205 as soon as I get it. It's supposed to be on it's way to the dealer from somewhere in North Dakota right now.

I am planning on some underbody boxes, but it's become surprisingly difficult to find the size I want, might need to have them custom made. . .

lol it may not be a "real truck" but now I understand where the expression about needing big bucks to play with big trucks comes from. Didn't snap an axle, but there were some wiring / electrical gremlins and it didn't wanna start.

Cattle belong to a local farmer, my parents own the land and just rent it out to the guy for the summer and he keeps his cattle there.
