    It'd be an even better bonus if they were fat and homeless! That way you could dump them off anywhere you want.. :laugh:

    bobcat_mans185- I have some ROW work coming up, but so far I have been getting into other projects that will lead to a more diverse skill set for my company as well as more exposure with the public.

    I looked at that truck- very similar but the tubular running boards gave it away. I feel pretty bad for whoever got my old truck.

    Nedly- Tell me about it! I'm starting to toy with getting a triaxle to tow an upcoming tag as well as to help me start moving materials for a material yard I'm trying to set up. Plus, there's still the fact I could fit both machines on a 25-30 ton tag, and get better mileage towing them to the site then what I get now just towing one machine (5-6mpg :dizzy:).

    Curtis- glad to see you haven't lost your sense of humor! How's it going up there in the granite state land?

    Big tip - the 550 sits up higher so you don't have to worry since they can't get up and in.:nono::)

    Andrew, hauled in 75 yards of black dirt today(in the rain even:hammerhead:)

    I vote for a tractor. A very smart man once told me, "The simplicity of the 5th wheel is the basis of its versatility." I was talking about how a hooklift would be the perfect do-all for a small company. I've started agreeing with him on this. With a tub end dump and fixed-neck lowboy you can cover most hauling situations. I say start with a 2 axle W900B and 25 ton single drop lowboy.

    Can anyone tell it's finals week?

    you should get a tri axle with a pintle setup and get a 25 ton equipment trailer. (not that my opinion really matters :laugh:) but that'd be a sweet setup and you could definitely haul those 2 pieces of machinery with that.

    hhhmmm, I don't know about this statement. I'd prefer bigger parts rather than bigger chicks.
