Yes, have several dump trucks, 14 cy Macks, currently updating to 20 cy tri axles.

We haul dirt and sand out of our pit, and do site work for now construction along with water, sewer and gas installations.

Buisness is wide open right now in Louisiana. No sign of a slow down, if I could hire 20 more people, I could put them all to work.

In Ottawa they had a good year, building starts are up, and they haven't stopped all winter hauling snow since early November. The City smoked through all of their $25 million snow removal budget this year.
