here are some pics from yesterday and today. pretty good size project we just started. It will be a training building for fire dept. built out of shipping containers.

first pic is from Friday morning when the machine was dropped. hauled stone all day Friday. 140 ton of stone in the lot.

second pic is sat. morning. before we got going

3rd stripping loam

rest are all digging and end of the day shot last.

we hit ledge at the bottom so we'll either change the starting height of the building or bring in another excavator or backhoe with the hammer.

but anyway enjoy.

Between the GMC 2500 and the Ford F250 which do you prefer? Possibly in the market for a replacement truck and looking at both.

they are both really nice. interior wise the ford is more comfortable, the gmc rides a little better. the ford tows better carries the plow better and gets better fuel mileage. I drive the ford because I like it better all around but that's one mans opinion. the next pickup will surely be a 350 powerstroke.

too be honest I'm not 100% sure yet. my father has been asking me about getting into plowing for some extra winter money since the carpentry business gets slow in the winter. so I think we are going to put it on his 07 Chevy for right now and see how it handles it since it will be right at FAWR and if it doesn't like it we will run the blade on the 08 Ford and my 8.5 MVP on his truck.

i'm almost certain that it is going to be too much for his truck but we'll see

as soon as we figure it out ill post up pics for sure. the thing is an absolute monster though.
