In that case - go get yourself some Trimble gear. Hire your surveys for a couple of control points and you never have to see them again. Was talking to my Trimble rep about a setup 2 weeks ago. Runs...

Can you dig a foundation with one guy - yes, but it won't be very profitable or efficient.

I agree with what Griz and Finishdude have said.

On a project this size, I would not be putting out a lump sum with less than half a page of details. As others have said, there's no payment...

Yikes - that 6 wheeler is gonna be making a lot of trips. That'll give you somewhere around 6-8 tons of legal payload. Almost definitely 1.5-2 days of trucking there with a truck that size.

I've got them on 2 of my 3 trucks, and had them on 2 previous trucks. Love them. They keep me from dragging the bumper when I'm loaded, and don't ruin the ride when empty. I've never had the...

An E20 isn't going to do anything with frozen ground. I can say that with nearly absolute confidence because I own one. If I have to dig in the frost, I go for the biggest machine I can get on site,...
