    Had a customer call that wanted his driveway dressed up a little for a party they was having, Didn't want much done just a little more parking space and for it to look a little better.

    What he had......

    So we had 15 ton road pack hauled in and we brought in about 4 ton of stone to dress up the edge and help hold it in.

    Nice use of the stones along the edge and a good idea to keep the road pack in.

    Thanks, Homeowner just wanted it to be quick and cheap the larger stones was already on site so we had to gather them up. Was in and out in under 3 hrs including unloading and loading machine.

    Its pretty nice to have, I picked it up and a truck to pull it with as soon as I got started. I have used it from the basics to pushing over trees/clearing brush, tearing out concrete, building atv jumps & berms pushing snow I could go on & on hell I even got paid to move cow poop.

    Of course Id like to have a nice new machine with a cab but this is paid for and has paid for its self a few times plus its pretty simple machine when needing worked on, Shes got just over 2300 hours and will still spin all four tires on dry dirt if you try and push up on a tree. I wouldn't go to much in debt unless the machine will make is monthly payments plus the cost of running including repairs/maint

    Why not buy plexi glass and retro fit a cab.

    Good idea. Or even Lexan, it wont scratch up as bad as plexiglass.
