I will assure you its not plastic. Those drain grates and channel drains are all a custom cast iron from the west coast and they were not cheap. They came in raw metal form and we had them all custom powder coated. They are the real deal. www.ironagegrates.com

He had a decent amount of hours in everything since it was all custom work.

Below are some more pics of Project D that is well under construction. We've used a new slab paver, which when clean is really neat. Masonry walls are going up in the back, pool is done, and we'll put down about 7000 sf of pavers in the next few weeks.

We also did another photo shoot this afternoon for our new marketing material. I'll post a few of the very many that were taken, some for SNG. Another job box arrived this morning and ended up in the photo, it will be lettered in the next few weeks.

We're going to need a bigger parking lot if we plan on doing this again in the future.

It is still here, it is primarily a glorified shop machine and may get into the field 10% of the time. I've considered parting with it and getting a good used skid loader but we all know where the used equipment market is right now. Buying is good, selling - not the case. Its paid for, so it just sits. It is a great little machine for planting because you have the hoe, but we end up climbing over it in the shop more than anything. If I could get $10k for it I'd let it go.
