    I'm thinking that could be fun with a tall pipe load that isn't tarped in the front, projecting the horns to the rear of the trailer.

    Liberty Utilities shifted the poles for free.
    Jasper county - 60’ culvert $1585
    Tree service $450
    Chiropractors day cab and dump trailer - $300 fuel, $50 PTO fluid.
    Joplin Stone - 30 miles away - 13 loads. 590,000lbs of rock. $2400
    Drew Thomas Excavations - 9 hours -,$1400.

    About 2-3 days, and we have McArthur Transport world headquarters.

    Things learned -

    Local dump truck work is not for me.

    11.1 Detroit’s can’t pull the skin of a rice pudding.

    Rock don’t go as far as you’d think.

    You have to outspend thieves.
