    Awesome work! I like your website as well. It seems like you complete a nice variety of projects. How did you make the transition from residential work to the larger work you now perform? This is a process I am going through now and am always looking for other contractor's experiences doing this.

    BTW- the picture of the D8R with the ripper climbing the dirt pile in your sitework photos on your website looks very familiar ;-)

    I think that D8R is a stock photo that the web person I use found, no idea to be honest.

    We did a lot of marketing to the larger contractors such as Western Archer and American Civil Constructors, several larger firms gave us a shot and we proved trust worthy. The key is just get yourself in front of them as much as you can some one will give you a shot sooner or later. There's other tactics and your more than welcome to PM me for more information

    Haha, no problem. I figured that photo made its way into a stock photo base. I actually took that original photo back in 2007 up in MA on a project I was running for a previous employer. Good memories and it was just funny to see that photo pop up in another place.

    I'm running out to a family thanksgiving event now, but I will take you up on your offer to PM you later.

    Happy thanksgiving!

    Thanks! Our website is actually going through a major redesign as it does not accurately reflect that larger land clearing projects, trucking, and other projects we are doing these days.

    We break ground tomorrow morning on the dredging, the Cat 330 and Volvo 35D are sitting on our trailers ready to roll. Machines are all cleaned up and looking good. The people in that lake are prominent folks of the town, we want to make a good impression. I will be posting pictures and vids on Youtube

    So we started the dredging project and 100' into the lake bed using mud mats mind you this happened, there are two mud mats underneath the machine. No one had any idea that the soil was this unstable, we even had an engineer check the soil to see if it could hold the weight with mud mats and he was dead wrong.
