the worst thing about patios? they're in the damn back yard!!! people only see the mess and commotion and not the beautiful finished product
Your issue lies with the fact that you still use wheelbarrows, get rid of those damn things and spend some money on hydraulic ones and get rid of an employee to save you the money you just spent. You'll thank me later.

I must admit. Thats the coolest thing ever. Must be awesome for concrete. But its hard to compare the pricetag to 3 jacksons and a few hours of payroll. Some day i will have all these toys... Some day...

Well they certainly have to earn their keep at the price they want for them! I have two and you really have to watch the maintenance on them, check oil twice a day and keep the filters clean. One I've had since 2004, the other one I purchased in 07, I bet I have 2000 hours on the older one. I even haul pallets of material from the front yard to the back on occasion. Not full, but whatever my asv 50 can lift, the cormidi will piggyback it to the backyard.

They are very light duty more of a residential unit. That unit is not for the serious hardscaper. But still much better than a wheelbarrow.

cormidi looks like something from bob the builder, but in a good way. like the kubota mated with a dingo
