    So the first picture is our PC120 digging a deep french drain in a neighbor hood with many trees and rocks. The old girl could barely roll that thing out of the hole. The next picture is the first week I was running the mack and the first time I pulled the 120 myself I did pretty good and the Mack had "tons" of power back then haha! The last picture is the little machines the first day on a big wall, paving, and drainage job we did at a house.

    These are some before and after pictures of a house we worked on. There was a french drain installed along the back of the house to prevent the basement from flooding every rain storm as well as a bunch of pipe for storm water management and liter drain tie ins. Our crew built the wall and steps and the paving was done by one of our subs.

    Thanks! The truck is about 19,500 empty and registered for 60,000 gvw as the DOT around here advises to include any trailer weight on your gvw (not going to get into that debate here). The truck is set up pretty heavy though it has a 25 rear and a 12 front which is more than enough for what we do right now.

    Some pictures of the building we tore down at a lumber yard. 120'x 25'. We got it down floor out and footings installed in december. Then the cold hit we just got it framed up last week.

    I love the Kubota its a great machine. I wish I had the money to buy a better skid steer but for the amount of time it sits vs. the amount of time its used I cannot justify it. Heres some more pictures of the building floor being poured 70 yards of concrete and the new building framed up. Siding goes on next week and were done.

    Some pictures of the foundation I dug a few weeks ago and have now back filled it but only half way as the builder changed his mind the day I started back filling. He got nervous with the 30 foot long back wall being 9 foot high I suggested we wait until the first floor is installed to help hold the walls from caving in.

    The spoils pile is still that large after 13 tandem loads of dirt were trucked off site. Probably the hardest most stressful dig I've done in this machine there was no room to get into the job. The drivers threatened to walk off the job after one load was taken out of the driveway due to the tight conditions, bushes, and overall crappy area the job was in. Learning the hard way what it takes to make it living the dirt life.

    Excellent projects. I was looking at the pics of the building going up and was wondering about the (wood blocks?) that were set behind the steel poles. How do those work?

    All I can say is great job. Never let them see you sweat LOL. That's a commercial actually but yeah that feeling you get when you're all cramped up and crowded up is nerve racking and then it takes all night to mentally wind down after concentrating so hard. It's a shame about the truck drivers complaining. You got to find one or two that won't complain. Who needs that on top of all your responsibility and liability. Also I don't think anybody wants to backfill a block wall. Nice jobs you got going there and very rewarding when done.

    Thanks guys. Georgia the wood blocks are actually just temporary while the floor was being poured as the brackets for the 6x6 posts for the building are about 1" below the floor made for a real clean job. Thanks FD the truckers were being uptight even after I tied all the bushes back but the one guy had fresh paint and the other had a 14' western star. I always like keeping my stuff as good as I can too but they really added to the stress that morning and more than likely cost me a load a piece.
