Are the skid & dingo yours or rentals?

I like seeing other young guys on here building businesses.
The truck photographs well.

The skids are rentals. And ill never rent a tire machine ever again. Worthless for most of the job. I love that ditch witch sk650. My absolute favorite mini, I'm looking to buy one this year.

Start 'em young

My father let me drive a 753 when I was 6, my oldest son has the hang of running a Z and can move the skid steer with a little help. Good looking work, keep it up.

Oh i definitely enjoy it. My wife tells me its supposed to be mama's boy and daddys and little girl. But there is no mama in this boy. Looks just like me and acts just like me. Loves anything with a motor. That picture was taken a month before his third birthday. By fall clean up at the house he started understanding how to stripe.
He has already laid claim to one of my trucks to be his work truck. I was ready to sell it at the first offer over $500 but i guess i can't now.

Now im just waiting for number two to show up and see if i get another mini me or a mini mommy with daddys interests!!!

First of all, that's a big ass snake.

Very nice work man. I don't like to post on here much anymore but i felt like you deserved a compliment or two. I'm big on mowing stripes, and keeping them straight. Yours are awesome.

I like the retaining wall and stairs and obviously the stripes, looks like you pay a lot of attention to detail. Where did you learn to build stairs/retaining walls and where did you learn to design? I like what you did with the retaining wall, it's not just a boring wall or two

Thanks for the compliments. I worked for a company that specialized in hardscapes for four years. And i took some design classes when i was in the horticulture program in college but ihate designing that way. I just go out there and can see where stuff needs to go and flow properly. Then its just throwing some paint on the ground so others can see.

And yes those stairs suck. I hate installing those but its the cheapest ones to install around here.
