Sean, i made two great contacts with govt agencies to supply sandbags during an emergency and to supply pre-palletized bags to stockpile. I guess all it takes is one good contact. Thanks for all the advice and inspiration.

Right back at you Jacob, it's awesome to see how far you have come along and how far you will go. Hopefully someday soon we can chat over beers .

One looks like the galaxy hulk, whats the other? Any preference of one vs the other for dirt or concrete? Need new tires bad!

On asphalt and concrete i like the hulk or severe duty tire style, i find that they "slide" or skid better resulting in less bouncing of the machine/operator, they work excellent in dirt as well . I have a brand new set of severe dutys hanging around that i might just put on the sv300 this week...

Another picture of the pickup at work, i much prefer to use the rolloff for moving equipment but when that truck is tied up this setup works great for the smaller stuff. On a side note the case developed a leak in the hydraulic lift cylinder. Looks to be a seal gone out. Dealership is sending a tech out tomorow and we will see. It is a very slow leak so in the mean time il keep using it.

I really like that case. Got my first RFP for Pre-Position Emergency Contract-Sandbagging Operations. Going friday to get the specs on the amount of bags and where they want them pre-positioned at. Have to turn my bid in by May 14th.
