    Well, its been awhile since ive posted anything in here, thanks for the compliments guys.

    I'm usually to busy trying to get the jobs done to snap pics, but I have been taking more lately.

    Here are some more pics of the recent jobs:

    First up is a retaining wall we put in and backfilled entirely with #57 sized recycled aggregate. There will be a 17'x18' parking pad we will pour on monday on top. Got to use a brand new tak 228 for this one. Stones were Techobloc Semma wall stones with Antique 14" caps. I wasnt a big fan of the semma units, definitely not of the corner pieces, and wasnt entirely happy how it came out, but the homeowner loved it which is all that matters.

    we made sure this base was solid, 16" wide by 12" deep packed with #411 limestone.

    Next up is 2 aprons that we tore out and re-poured. One of them is where we keep some equipment so we made sure to get an extra strong base along with about 7" nominal thickness on the concrete. And where the pipe was a bit higher we used 5/8" rebar for extra support in addition to the wire mesh.

    This job we did kind of like an emergency, they were meeting with the city engineer that night and we came out to do this after we poured the two aprons. We provide maintenance services for this church and I made them aware of their drainage issue with the 3 washouts and swale at the beginning of the year. Well, they want to put up a new building and the city wanted them to take care of several issues prior to approving the building. They call me up asking me to re-seed the areas they had rip rap installed around and regraded, I was a bit peeved b/c they had another contractor do this and now I have to take care of their mess. It's too cold to seed here now so I contacted the city engineer directly and he liked my idea of straw matting to buy them some time until the spring when we will come in and strip away the clay/gravel they spread out over the good grass and re-seed these areas. I need to go pick up some filter sock to put along the edges of the matting that are sloped towards the sidewalk.

    All the while doing these wrap up jobs for the year we are getting ready for the winter as well. Pulled out all the plows, made sure they are topped off with fluid and working properly. Sprayed them down with Fluid Film (awesome stuff!) and put them back and ready to pull out soon! We installed a set of wings on our 9'2" Boss V-XT bringing total width to 11':weightlifter:

    Then installed our new Salt Dogg 2yd salter in our 06. Couple of pics of the tint and cb, salter controller and spot where we will mount some more switches. Still need to fab some face plates for these 2 spots.

    Everything looks good, I still love your Fords. When I get into plowing I think I'm going to have a custom console made for the center hump of my truck. I'm real good friends with the guy who wires all the police cars and ambulances and firetrucks in the county. And some other stuff, he has his own company so he always gets me killer deals on lights and stuff. I've saw a few consoles he's done and they're awesome.

    Looking good man Nice salter, I like the paint on the bed side boards. Will you guys ever paint the dump or at least the bed? That would really bother me all your other trucks are top notch

    Nice. I like how you painted the side boards to match your enclosed trailer. Good idea
