    We have one shopping center complex we do that has in the neighborhood of 10 acres of lot... It just didn't make sense anymore to tie up multiple trucks for hours...... So this got delivered the end of last week


    Got to try it out yesterday, worked GREAT! Should have bought this thing years ago!

    so im being a little nosey here but about how long did it take you to take care of the parking lot with that as opposed to truck hours???? Ive always wanted to know that. Not that I can ever afford that!!!! Really nice! Looks like a money maker to me!!!!

    It took less than half the time of doing it with trucks, and I believe that once my guy gets used to running it, it will go even quicker.

    Sweet! Do you have other work for the machine aside from snow? Just curious why you chose a backhoe over an articulating loader, or a tractor?
