    Here's just a few more things we've been involved in this winter.

    Typical large pipe leaks and their repairs; zone conversions to MP-Rotators; chasing a leak in a 3/4" old galvanized line through 40' of double layered asphalt. (This 3/4" line is somehow attached to the same 2" black pipe line used as a main line for the renovation project over 300' away and behind the administration building.)

    Oh... and I remembered this time to cut back on the compression ratio of the pictures so they'd load quicker for dial-up connections.

    I do not envy you. No fun there at all.

    Fairly straight forward situation when you have a jackhammer to remove the asphalt. :)

    This job would have been easy with my new trencher.

    Too much, but it easily handles all the palm roots in SW Florida. A little difficult moving it though.

    Ah, the bucket-wheel excavator. 5 years of design and 5 years to assemble all at the low cost of 100$ million. If anyone is looking to buy one, they are made by a company named Krupp.

    Would be cool to have a sign with your company name on this thing and use it on your business card.. "No job too small"
