    With all the rocks wheres the yard and grass that is suppose to be growing,it looks more like a parking lot then yard !!!!!

    So does running the hammer on it's side cause the hammer to have problems later, or it doesn't matter? Could you run it upside down if needed?

    Never thought of running one like you was using it.Thanks for sharing you pics.You have way to many rocks for me , i like green grass covered yards.Good luck.

    It was basically a parking lot. We will be digging the foundation for a car wash toward the front of the property and storage units in the back. We did a large storage unit complex for this guy a couple years ago. This one is not as big but it will be a decent job.

    As far as the hammer it is right side up, just hammering perpendicular to the wall instead of the floor. I don't have a camera crew like mrsops so I planted the hammer in the wall and then squeezed out of the cab and took a picture. I am trying take more pictures this year, I want to update my website this Fall so I need material. I wanted one with the roller, but I get going and didn't feel like stopping for a photo op (I need to change that mentality).

    As for the topsoil, you may not know this Construct'O but that is topsoil, it is just the granulars are larger and harder than typical topsoil granulars.

    We do quite a bit of demo and I continue to be surprised on the amount of trucks it takes to haul off material. This one was 6 Side dumps and 15 tandem dump trucks.
