    I have been planning on doing this for a while and will post some pics of our work. We are a family owned operation and do a little bit of everything so that is why you will see us doing all kinds of stuff in the pics. I w ill try to put some pics aon at least once a week. Wolf requested some pics of our demo work so i will start with a few of those.

    Nice Peterbilt and Cat's. Looks like a good day on the job. Do I see palms and sand. I too love pictures.

    Thanks Fastdirt. Yes there is sand and palms. Not a lot of fun keeping demo debris out of dry sand!

    Wow, Chris, those are great shots. I love to see the demo in action. Also, it looks like you have beautiful equipment that you keep in really good shape, which is especially difficult when you are doing all that crashing and crunching.

    What kind of building is this that you are demo'ing? It looks like you are in Florida with all those palms in the background. Is that right.

    Thanks, Chris. Love it, and keep it up, bro.

    It does look clean and well cared for. Good to see in these times.

    Thanks for the compliments on the equipment. We do try very hard to keep everything in good cosmetic as well as mechanical condition. It is hard to do when doing demo and clearing!

    The wood building was one of two, two story wood frame hotel buildings built in the 70's. The concrete is from a one story wood frame with concrete slab. Like I said, there were 14 buildings in all on that job including two, three story concrete. We are in SC so that is why you see all the palms. I have so many pics of our jobs and will try to keep posting on a regular basis.

    Thanks again.

    Thanks CD. I also enjoy seeing your pics. Scenery is a little different than mine( I prefer yours). Sawdus, we are just South of Charleston.

    Here are some pics of a 7000 SQft house we did last year.

    Oh ok thats a pretty nice area. I love Charleston and just the low country for that matter. But could you do a little company bio? How you got started? How big your fleet is and so forth.

    Sawdus,

    As for a bio, well my brother started the business in 89 with a GMC flatbed and a Komatsu D31s track loader. I worked for him while I was in school and have been there full time since 92 and my other brother has been there since the beginning.

    Equipment wise, well we have a good bit, we figure good help is hard to find so we try to do as much with equipment as we can and as few people as possible. Will give a rundown of the equipment, might forget something though.
    kubota 121
    kubota kx080
    Cat 315C
    Cat 320D
    Volvo 300d
    Deere 450j
    Cat D6k
    Cat 928G
    Cat 963C
    Kubota SVL 95
    2 kubota tractors
    TigercatM726E
    Cat 120h
    2 Cat rollers
    Peterson Pacific 5710c
    Cat 430D IT
    2 KW tri axles
    1 Pete 389
    1 Pete 337 dump

    I think that is it.

    Chris

    The owners wanted a landscaped lot in front of their house so they bought it an wrecked it. The house was in good shape though.

    Impressive, what was the deal with that one? Were those steps solid?

    How do you like the kubota svl 90?

    This one burned. Fire was in the back and attic area. The steps were block and brick filled with dirt with poured steps. We love the SVL 90. We have not had a bit of trouble from, operates great and well thought out from a mantanance standpoint.
