    I think that should catch me up for a bit. I have some videos I need to get posted as well as some other job photos (the other work we do doesn't stop). Time to go be productive for the day!

    very nice Andrew!

    where are you getting your stumps from?

    will this be your retail site as well or just a production yard? mind if i ask what the finished product sells for? here double shredded, dyed hardwood mulch goes for about 28 bucks retail and I get it for 24 per yard in small quantities or 20 a yard for larger loads.

    The stumps come from a variety of places but the major source now is from the pit I am set up in. Also, the stumps only account for a small percentage of the wood mix in a finished mulch product so we should have plenty of stumps for several years to come.

    This yard is only our production and wholesale site. We are tentatively opening up a retail/contractor sales site just a little ways up the road soon.

    The mulch in my area has been ground twice (once to convert from logs and stumps, and then another time to bring it down to a finished product size). The prices you quoted are very close (within a few dollars) to what we see in our area.

    Good to hear. I'm glad theres others on here experiencing growth as well in these crazy times. I've heard enough doom & gloom talk. I was looking into purchasing a car dealership that I wanted to turn into a retail center.

    Plenty of room to sell bulk materials from, i was going to lease out the show room to my equipment dealer, and part of the parking lot to a farm market. I also had people interested in renting out indoor storage. But, i didnt have 3.5million sitting around lol. too bad cause the place was in a prime location...

    Wow, that is some serious action ARP. :weightlifter::weightlifter::weightlifter: Good for you! Love the pic of the grinder shooting out product in mid air with the herring bone pattern from the belt, sweet. As you probably know providing a place for people to dump stumps for a fee is BIG $$$. Love the truck, I noticed you have room for "client meetings" in the extra cab when bidding jobs for lonely housewives.:laugh: Everything looks great.....that grinder looks badass:waving:
