    Hey guys , figured it was time to start a new picture thread. It has been a crazy year so far, i will try to post some work pics in the next few days. Made a few purchases this year so far so we can keep up with multiple jobs at the same time. Here is one that i am really excited for and should be arriving on saturday and taken directly to a job. Been wanting a larger skid for quite some time , for the jobs where we cant fit a loader. Found this one and it was too good of a deal to pass up.Even after shipping to Canada and Customs.Here is the new Case Sv300. Purchased with 11 hours from Groff tractor in P.A. It has cab, heat, a/c, E/H controls, radio etc.

    quick update here,

    Machine arrived and was put to work right away. I am very very impressed with the new Alpha series, a few quirks about the E/H that i didnt like but nothing a few hours of seat time didnt solve. Picture of unloading it from the flat deck , some new tires on one of the New Hollands, and some from a job we did removing bonded asphalt from the roof deck of parking garage. Sorry i dont have any pictures of us removing the bonded asphalt just the cleanup. We also removed about 300 Linear feet of concrete curb as well.

    Some more of the bonded asphalt job and some of another job I started this week. Asphalt,granular, trees, curbs, and sidewalks are being removed and disposed, while the soil is being stockpiled for re-use after the repairs are completed.

    I have been very happy with my TR320. So much so that it makes spending time in my 465 almost like a prison sentence from a comfort standpoint. The Alpha has been very dependable. I would love to trade the 465 for a SV300. I will listening to hear your thoughts on the SV300.

    Ksss- so far I am Extremly happy with the sv300. I looked at all the comparable models before I made the purchase. The cab is very quiet and very comfortable, visibility is excellent ( takes a while to remember the machine has a big rear end on it) , break out force is great, I can load tria axle dumps easily. We put 45 hours on it since Monday , and I find it hard to jump back into the L175 's ( not that they are a bad machine - they work excellent for us) .

    Jacob- thanks! I highly recommend you look at a new alpha series case. How's things going with the new company?
