    Well we just started ripping ou the sidewalks at a dicks sporting goods near us. Theres just over 500' to rip out. I hate doing jobs in busy places like this bucause people have no comon sense about anything and one lady tried walking between our truck and machine as we were digging. The curb on this sidewalk is overkill. Take a look for yourself.

    curbs are always 18" (when poured with a slip form machine)...most shopping centers because of the amount of curbing use those machines...usually as you know the curb is 6-8" above grade then the rest is under

    we had a small job ripping up curb a few weeks ago that the recycle place didnt want to take because it was too big..real pain...you guys only hauling with that little F800 it looks like?

    Nate, how did you figure that job? By the square foot price or just figure time?

    Don't let one of those pieces slide out of the truck and into the cab:nono:.I like a thumb for that kind of work.

    We are just doing the demo work, and we just do it by time.


    minimax, its hard to see but the bucket we are using is designed for concret work. Its called the Slab crab by Kenco. It wedges the piece into the bucket so it shouldnt come out. The bucket is better than the way my dad used to do it for years by just floping the piece up on to the bucket and hoping it would stay as you went to the truck with it.
