Hello Everyone!


My name is Trevor. I grew up excavating with my father. I am a 4th generation excavator. I've worked in 5 states doing everything from site prep and main line utilities to finish grade and powerline R.O.W's. I have during my 30 years of work experience also been a res/ com drywall contractor. I currently remodel, as I am not willing to sell my talents for the low dollar wage that is offered in my area. I am enjoying working out of my truck and wearing whatever I want to work. Life is fairly good!

SW Missouri. 15/ hr regardless of experience. 23.15 is union scale here.
My father paid better than that back in the 80's.
