    Chris, are you hauling all the mud out yourself with just the KW or do you have other trucks lined up as well?

    How many trucks have you got hauling and are you using yours for hauling (with other driver)? Also how do you go about bidding a job like that, if you don't mind me asking?

    I've got 6 trucks hauling it out along with the bossman running our KW. Of course I can load all 6 trucks and they all leave at the same time, guess what? they still all manage to come back at the same time:hammerhead: Damn truckdrivers.


    Oh yeah and one ran over the cable box at the road along with crushing a breaking the storm drain too:hammerhead:

    I've been on plenty of asphalt jobs and it always amazes me how they manage to bunch up like that.

    Yeap, If one stop, they all stop. The local BO time near me, always has 5 dumps in the parking lot eating and yapping. I drive by and think, I bet the boss is wondering were the dumps are. :laugh:

    I've put down about 200 tons of stone and when I left today I could hard tell there was 40 tons on the ground. Loaded dump trucks made the road gy bye bye

    Chris,

    Good work, I saw this the other day in a magzine for a company working in a lagoon. It is a geogrid might help in the future to put down under the crushed to firm up the crushed stone from sinking in just figured I would pass it along. http://www.tensarcorp.com/TriAx/Overview.asp

    Where is everything that you take out going to?
