    We do anything that pays. 80% of our work is excavating the other 20% is paving. We also have a 1995 CAT 325 Trackhoe and an Old D8 that looks just like that D7. Them two are out on one of our jobs right now.

    Also have 2 front end loaders that are at the place were we plow and a Cat 963 track loader.

    They do try to keep up with the old stuff. They are starting to buy newer and newer.

    Well i was going to take that job. But my buddys dad owns a couple home heating oil trucks. So i just drove for him for a little bit. Then i got called back to work. We been busy ever since.

    Love that old stuff. A hell of a lot easier to fix then the new ones. No electronics on the old ones. Only need 2 or 3 wires for ignition and the rest is just pulling on the old hydrolic valves to go. My newer stuff has all servo controls and they have to be calibrated every time we do any work on them.
