    How big is this company? Last year when I went to the Biddeford lot at least half the machines there were rentals from Hertz Equipment Rentals.

    I would say they are the biggest landscape maintenance and install company in southern maine if not all of maine, but you don't really need large wheel loaders in landscaping so they rent for the winter. I think they own one loader and a couple of bobcats between the landscape and paving company.

    Am I missing something? That guy just drove back and forth doing nothing for most of the vid. Looked like nothing but wasting diesel fuel and rubber to me.:confused:

    Oh I thought they were just a small landscaping company. I would imagine it costs alot to rent the machines, half the time the loaders are just sitting there.

    I don't work for them but they do two lots across this town, one being the Mall, and the other a smaller Mall Plaza. This company is an excavating company as well.

    Soo, what have you done for the past hour? Well lets see, I drove back and forth on the side walk and let snow spill over every pass i made.Thumbs Up Then i finally decided to go straight on and push it onto the road for the loaders to pick up. Of course I had to go forward then reverse about 20 times to get R done!

    :laughing:......jeez really!!
