    Nice pictures when I saw the second picture I said hey that's Grondin. Good to see a fellow Mainer. Are you just an equipment operator for them? They do the Cabela's plaza too right?

    What size Blade is that on the Cat Track loader?

    I am out of Gorham as well.

    They are an excavating company, they are just looking to keep busy in winter, all of their loaders go to many lots across this town.

    Actually the exact opposite, with the Mall I don't think many other companies could actually handle it.
    Also the Cabela's Plaza they actually have the contract now and took it back from a small time Landscape who was doing it for nothing and couldn't handle it. From what I hear Grondin does it for much more and does a great job. To put it into comparison the Cabela's Plaza was the biggest earthwork job ever done in the state of Maine when it was done and the excavation company to do it was Grondin.

    Haha I don't work for them but yes they plow the Cabela's lot to.

    I don't know the size of the blade but I know its in between 72 inches and 84 inches.

    I am in Waterboro Maine.

    Around here most of the problems are with small guys instead of the big guys. The big companies are expanding and growing while the little guy is cutting others legs off but I think that is just the way of the economy. I have no problem because they won't be around long but as soon as their gone a new group will be right behind to start all over again. Most are getting fed up and willing to pay more for better service. I think what helps is not a big presence of the big management companies to mess up pricing.

    I noticed as well, but Grondin does a great job with clearing the mall and Cabela's lots, every inch is cleared.
