We just ordered another job box, thus I am in search mode for equipment to stock it.

If anyone knows the where abouts of a good used Wacker 3050 Reversible Plate Compactor send me an PM.

Hey etwman, I just bought a new reversable plate compactor. Its not a top of the line brand name, but so far it has been great. I got it for $1,500 with free shipping. The place I got it from was in PA. The brand name was Powerland. I have some pics of it in my picture thread if you want to look at it.

If you don't have your heart set on the wacker, I would recommend taking a look at this one. It will most likely be less expensive than a used wacker and it will be brand new. It compacts with 7000 lbs of force and weighs 370 lbs.

PM me if you wants some more info.

Mrusk - The problem with VL Mosaic is that, although it is a combo wall, 2 of the accents do not equal the height of a stretcher or cobble. Thus, you can't really run it in a random type scenario. You have to install in panels. What we have done in the past is alternate the placement of the pieces to give the more random look, but you will still have a horizontal seam.

That looks awesome... Did you use some kind of an effect on your camera, The pictures almost look more like renderings than actual photos?? That sure would look good in my backyard, maybe you could give me the fellow lawnsite discount price??

Absolutely beautiful! The crepe myrtles really catch the eye; did not realize they grew so far north but must get some protection here. Are they Pecos variety? I worry about your customers, Etwman, come the revolution, they are in big trouble; to much $$. A lot of look at me, look at me here. But everything is first tier and shows great design and knowledgeable, experienced workmanship.
