    This house is less than 1/4 mile from our shop and is typical of the other 30 or so along the beach where we work.

    Well I have a bit to update since the summer. We ended up trading off the two white International 9400i's for 2 newer red International 9200i's with ISM Cummins motors, and the two Arne's Vmaxes for 2 new SiDumpr trailers.

    The first two trucks are the new side dumps. The 3rd one is a spare that we use for hauling scrap metal down to Iowa for a local company. Then our 2006 Chevy 3500 Duramax that we use to pull a 35' 5th wheel. Then the last three trucks are our 9900i internationals that pull belly dumps

    Then I took this picture of our Deere 230C LC with one of the new work pickups, then a few weeks later we traded the 230 off for this 2012 250G with 800 hours on it.

    938F and the older 950G melting off in the main shop after an early morning of snow removal

    IMG_1171.JPG

    Our new plow pickup after we just finished setting it up. You can see our old 950E with 25,000 hours in the back ground.

    IMG_1202.JPG

    Then I was sent out to do some drift breaking on the townships with the 143H

    IMG_1207.JPG

    And then I got to be the first lucky one to try out the new plow pickup!

    A farmer hired us to cut a water way into his field. I was loading our D25D with the soil we cut out (it was all black dirt, no clay to be found) with the newer 950G with command steer. You can see the D5G LGP way in the back working on the water way.

    IMG_0838.JPG

    Tearing out a concrete slab with the Cat 302.5C and a Cat 246C. This was the amount of rebar in a slab that was 10x15 and 6 inches thick.

    IMG_1083.jpg

    And the newest addition to my personal collection, a John Deere 450. You can see our newest dump truck in the back ground (the one that was waiting to be painted a few pages back).

    One of the supervisors had a little mishap with the 624J and the blade for it.

    Replacing a cylinder on one of the 624H's after repacking it this winter.

    Tearing out the concrete from an old feed lot. Me looking out the back of a 700J. You can see one of the 320C's and one of the 624H's in the back ground.

    Here's a couple of pictures of my grandpa next to one of the 2 Linkbelt 2800A's we had at one time. He's the one who started this all in 1979.
