    Hi Tom,
    Any idea the measurements of the bucket on the e-50 and any idea what the added cost was for the pivot?

    The digging bucket is 24" and the grading bucket is 52". The wrist was about $5,000. Its a lot but well worth it. I use the wrist and grading bucket for everything except digging rocks and pulling stumps. I'd say the digging bucket is on the machine only 20% of the time.

    Are u guys finished for the year yet? I can't believe the weather we are having down here, we're still busy as ever, crazy 'winter'!

    Got a hardscape question for you. I am thinking about building a stone stacked firepit in my yard and wondering if I should use sandstone or flagstone. Is one or the other stone better for a firepit in your opinion for something like a fire pit?

    Yea were all done, finished the first week of January. We have very little snow but the ground is frozen. We have enough work to keep going but we found its not efficient for us to work through the winter.

    As for your question, we do very little to no natural stone work so I am really not the person to ask that question. We only build the SRW fire pits with the metal liners. Sorry I can't help you.

    Sandstone or flagstone? Flagstone is just a name for nondemsional rock. How are you thinking about building it? Drystacked, veneerd on a firepit kit?? You might want to start another thread for this also.
