    Just wondering if anyone has a good tip for removing pavers out of the middle of a pattern. I know there is tool for this, but don't want to spend the dough unless I have to. Thanks for the help.

    We use a paver extractor and I think it was worth every penny.

    Mbella,

    Man that was fast! Do you remember what you paid for your extractor? I was looking @ the one on pavetech.com and didn't see a price.

    two skinny and long screwdrivers, but be careful not to dig into the ones that you are using for leverage. Paid my $$ for the paver adjuster and my guys still use screwdrivers. aggghhh...

    I think we paid $150.00.

    Not everyone has the cash flow Mike does, so we use the ol' screwdriver trick.

    Oh yeah, it's flowing. I just don't know where it's flowing to.
