    Agreed. One of my favorites was that guy in the Bobcat videos that slammed his fingers in the door of the JD and the CAT to prove that you couldn't get a good door seal. I thought the purpose of the rubber seal was to conform and compress to make a good seal????

    HAHA, I tried that for the first time on my brother's 277C in May, hurt like hell, squeezed my fingers tight, seems the Bobcat idiot did it with the side windows CLOSED and henceforth created pressure inside the cab which doesn't allow the door to slam shut properly, I did it with the side windows OPEN and f*ck me it hurt. :laugh:

    My Jeep Wrangler is the same way, I always open the side windows a crack to get the doors to slam shut, just like a Peterbilt truck cab.

    We've been building a big retaining wall over the last couple weeks. Lots of red tape, and hold ups, but we are finally on to the finish rough grade tommorrow. then we get to wait for a concrete crew to put in a sidewalk so we can do the rest of our landscaping install.

    You should def look into a tracked carrier for your work. Just bought a canycom s25a . Try it once and I guarantee you will want one. I'm sure you guys could keep one quite busy.

    It looks like your using Allan Blocks there. I can see there inconsistancy is common in your area too. Those damn blocks give me fits. There corner blocks are the worst.

    Yes, these are allan blocks, and we hate them!!!!!!!

    We had the vender out 5 or 6 time to inspect how bad some of the blocks were.

    Nice retaining wall. How do you like the remote control sheepsfoot compactor?

    Also, that new dodge contractor dump you got is pretty awesome. Nice purchase.
