    Wow, what an interesting development. Not surprising though, unfortunately.

    Well, I guess that account is up for grabs again.

    Maybe give them a call Monday.

    Supposedly this isn't the first time this has happened to him. I spoke with one of the owners of the larger companies in the area this afternoon and asked him what he thought would happen, his exact response was "hes a cat with nine lives". Any management company that wishes to continue to do work with them is just saying that they condone this type of behavior

    My buddy does all my excavation and yes he uses a 331 and a t-190. We pretty much just use the 190 for moving rock unless we are digging a patio. Really depends on the site. It cost me a little more but he is GOOD and what he does in an hour would take me 6 or more.

    I think all/most of the big companies use illegals and just pay the fines if they get caught. I have no idea what they pay them though.

    What's weird is it says "each count", does that mean for every illegal he had?

    STL i thought i had read you had a mini track like the MT 55...just wanted some feedback on them in general
