    Ya, all the time... the stone is actually coming from a quarry on the other side of Wytheville. We are right on the WV/VA border, about 6 miles from I-77 exit 1. Wytheville is about 25 minutes (car travel) and about 50 minutes to NRV. All of our equipment comes from a dealer in the NRV as there is no one around here who knows the difference between a Lowe's JD and a commercial ZTR.

    You live close too Bluefield?


    You have too be careful about single axle dumps. They can have more ground pressure than a tandem due too weight distribution.

    small world... Ya, Big Walker is the 2nd tunnel you go through on I-77 south. East River tunnel is the state line, right in the middle, then about 10 miles or so to Big Walker. Around Wytheville is about as far as we service.

    I think I've heard the name Anthony Hawk... for some reason I'm thinking he's done some cigarette boat engines.

    Maybe so. He used too work for my friend at City Head service and he went out on his own when they left Bluefield. I have not been up there in 4 or 5 years.

    $800 to $1,000 profit for hauling 25 yards or stone?

    My thoughts exactly, someone has a skewed view of profit and gross revenue
