    Went by my local Walmart last night and seen the new contractors rigs. They had a sweet loader with a brand new pusher on the front and beside the loader sat a homemade rusted out pusher all chained up( atleast paint the thing) no names on the loaders and no one knows who they belong to.

    yep here they come I cant wait for snow here so I can look at lots that called me.
    Its funnier here because that is probably a sweet machine for st. louis.

    WTF no pics of the loader we want to see that too. The guy probably owns the one and is leasing the new one.

    That box doesn't look that bad to me, merely looks like it's payed for. I cant imagine a rusty pusher works much different than one with paint on it. I wouldn't mind seeing a pic of the wheel loader either. It seems to me (depending on the size of the loader & site) like this combo would handle a WM pretty well.

    The way I look at it is your equipment reflects what kinda work you do. If you dont care about your own stuff why would you care about anyone else. It would take $3 for a spray can of paint and 10 min of your time.

    I guess Im just use to seeing the nice equipment that use to sit there.

    Paid off equipment= less overheard= more profit/lower pricing.

    Close, but you still truly have the overhead of holding onto the equipment you own.
    I'll give you some credit though.

    Thats why I said "Less" overhead.

    And the Welfare line- can't be that bad, seems like everybody is doing it!

    no names on them probably because they're embarrassed of what they are working for :nod:

    The pusher for the loader in the background looks monsterous next to the rusty one.

    The local one near me has a big Cat loader and pusher, and they use 1 ton dumps and pickups with plows. Been the same company Augello excavating for years.

    Here is a pic of both. Im sure the big loader is owned by the property mang that hired the plow guy. I was offered a loader with pusher if I took a Walmart but still couldnt make enough to put someone in it. Im just saying these 2 units really dont fit together in my opinion.
