    Hahaha, we stopped playing around in the residential market a few years ago due to the amount of competition. In order to compete where we do(Civil and Municipal Roads, Highways, Utilities) you have to own your equipment and own BIG equipment, no company wants to see you roll up with a 20 ton excavator.

    Soon to come, that I just joined the site I'm still learning the ropes of the whole posting pictures thing, I will get a fleet shot shortly, its hard considering all our vehicles are gone by 6:30 A.M every day

    You know that stuff is just candy.. Can't get enough of it.

    Good luck with the new machines. I think that's the perfect sized dozer and the ex and grader are nice and big. I spend all my time in small machines. Been years since I had a dozer and really miss having something big for the occasional tank or road job.

    Being a smaller company has its major advantages, all the big equipment is nice to have, but along with it comes 15,000 GAL. month in diesel at the min drums and drums of oil and grease. There's times I wish I could scale this operation back and just do residential. Problem in this area is every rancher owns a dozer and overnight thinks he is an excavator, I've seen rates as low as: Dozer $55Hr, Excavator $70Hr, Blade $30HR Skid $25hr, I have no idea how anyone can make a living at those rates

    Here's a few pictures of a Hardscape job we wrapped up a few months back, now we are no professional hardscapers but I think our crew did a pretty good job.

    I think it looks professional. :) I've always been interested in that type of work but don't have the patience for it and I have a hard time keeping labor unless I pay an arm and a leg.
