    What made you want to use a profile level instead of a tape measure?

    we wern't using it for spacing, notice how even the tops of the trees are... it's key to set them in at a level that ensures they're even. you don't want to have to dig them back up because it looks funny.

    different project we're working on now... this one involved the paving contractor removing a good section of asphalt and we're turning the old parking lot into a "park" that will in turn screen this big ol cooling tower

    thought i'd share some photos since it's been slow around here lately

    awesome spade and truck! im trying to buy a ford 9000.

    is that your telehandler? I so want one but site managers keep saying they tear up sites too much to bring them in. so we move stuff the ghetto way with skidsteer.

    it is our telehandler I don't see why you couldn't get one, the smaller ones (like ours) don't really do any more damage than a skid might actually do less since you don't have to "skid" it is heavier than your average skid loader and the big units will surely make a mess but this size and the similar units from bobcat/jcb/etc I think are a great alternative to articulated loaders, do much better in the mud in my opinion BUT they don't like uneven terrain that much... capacity wise though a skid can't compete my unit will pick up 5500lbs all day
