    I have to go have dinner (Happy Easter everyone), but before I go I thought I would throw this pic up from this job that I was a supervisor on during the initial land clearing phase. Got many photos from working for this company.

    Man I miss working for these guys. Great company.

    Now for a little dirt work. Got asked to go to the family house that we are renovating and do some regrading of the private dirt road and parking area in front of the house. Nice little job with only 1 rock seen all day! (Not bad for New England where there are rocks everywhere :rolleyes:)

    Now for some before and during work pics:

    And now for some after pics:

    For finish work I will be installing a timber retaining wall along the edge of the lawn. Only had enough time in a half day.:rolleyes:

    Also, for the arborists out there, the trees won't die with a cut made that close. Managed to not cut any of the large roots coming out of the base of the trees. Plus, those locust trees are extremely resilient- can't kill em, they just keep coming back!

    Thanks Junior- yes that is me operating the machine. BTW- without a compactor, I did what is called "tracking it in." That is why you see all the tracks. We do that all the time in site work with the larger dozers to provide the initial little bit of compaction.

    Yea. New England material is nice and rocky. I've got piles full of stone from my screen that can attest to that.

    I gotta say that 450 looks pretty sharp all black with the pickup box on it.
