    They've still got a site up: http://www.durkincon.com/

    According to their "work experience" link, they had a job this year at a Valero refinery, so hopefully they've simply moved elsewhere. :beatsme

    I found more information about this company by exploring maps, They have a yard on spring mill road in White hall pa 18052.

    They are also storing some equipment in Atkinson freight co's yard, in Bensalem pa. I see a cat 375, a b 61 water truck, a d9r, a pete 379 and a crane, and some other equipment. I seen them a couple of weeks ago so they are still storing them there.

    hicrop10 is mike durkin.

    Crazy me, but I think I recognize the paint scheme. They are working on the PA Turnpike's service plaza in King of Prussia. I think... got a few red pieces of equipment and a newer 345c I think.

    Jim, that could be P DiMarco & co inc, they run near there and have some mid size excavators,they also have red equipment (although I think it was a darker shade of red.) Probably is Durkin though.
