    Yeah ROW, also main. of big acreage for GOV and big corps. Between tax money and revenue money drying out things have slowed down alot. You just need to find a niche(sp) market like Dirtman has to stay busy.

    Nothing wrong with residental. Build up your client list , do a quality job and you should do well. I didn't move up the chain far, I'm still at the bottom. You know the gov still describes a small business as one that makes less than $1.5 million a year. I'm far, far from that.:laugh:

    what kind of presidential solution of a knot is that? :laugh: :laugh:

    This whole grapple thing has got me thinking, the hoses on the grapple we got from Bobcat last came out on the side and rubbed on the tracks. I wonder if they make 2 different kinds?

    lol, I just threw it up there so it was out of the way of the picture of the hoses.

    don't you read junior... there are two kinds lol, one for a wheel machine and one for a tracked. in the first pic, that little plate with thw two bolts is where the lines come out on the other setup. but there's no way to put them to the center from that way... or so I was told???
