I’ve seen pictures of grain bins turned into Air B&B’s and homes, they turn out real cool. You already have a home, kinda far out on the butt end of nowhere for an Air B&B, so what are these gonna morph into?

Trailer? It won’t take you long to get that situation rectified. With the equipment you have, all you need is a trailer to get it to the jobs and you’ll be making moo-la!
Yeah that tipped the scale, $175 for them to drive out to me empty, $175 for 20 minutes of putting 4 inadequate chains to chain down my loader, in total for the 2 hours they spent with my loader they ate half my paycheck for the 15.5 hrs I spent doing this job. In total they were 2.5 hrs late
Nope not again :somad

That's sucks that they were late, overcharged, and did inadequate job.

On the other hand, you now have hard numbers to computer return on investment in buying trailer. And a potential job niche to fill for on time, done right trailering...
You mean Done Right Trailering ( Hauling ) 😉

Just curious, why would anyone want to spread all that mess across the land?
Base layer into what I would call flooded land, then they add rock/sand you seen in piles. The fun has just began for him as he plans on getting out there with cutting torch and cutting every single rebar piece off. It's an auction house yard, trying to increase room to put stuff.

Awesome that he gave a review! More "long term locals" saying good things the better.
When you show up as promised on the day given and as soon as the machine starts it doesn't stop till quitting time. Then get it done in record time, yeah that goes far. Tried telling me I should scoop a load up, move it over to dump, and go get another one, nope let me run this machine. This machine is made to push more than it can scoop up. It's not a wheel loader, think of it more of a dozer with ability to do what a wheel loader can do if you need to load a dump truck up, or don't want to spread the load and need to move it across distance.

Two things: Do you wear ear protection? Then, that was a pretty bird call. Not something I hear around here with my local birds.
At the 8 minute mark and thereabouts if you look closer at my ears you can see the neon green ear plugs in, I even wear ear plugs playing with cutting torches, when welding and have for decades. So when they said last year I am as deaf as they said I was and prescribed hearing aids, I knew it was from combat and the service.
I even sometimes wear earplugs and ear muffs since some stuff exceed 120dB which at -33dB which is most earplugs rated for still isn't enough. Here is a good chart, and I'm sure running a M2 thousands of rounds at a time with no hearing protection in combat exceeded the 160dB created by shotguns which we used also.
Hearing loss can onset dementia, cause loss of balance, and list of other problems.
There is all kinds of pretty bird calls, unless you get one of those small ones that like to start mating call at around 0400 hrs outside your bedroom in a tree.
