We had brought stone from Propples back in the 90's for a sears warehouse we did up in Ashley.

That was the first Union job that I was asked for my card daily to get on the property.

I think I remember a few problems on that project .

They left 1 million on the table to do interstate 81

Heard 5,000 ton failed and had a laundry list of other problems.

They have a contract with Allison that is ending.......they agreed to make Allison exclusive in the vocational models, in return they got a cheaper price on them. That's why for a long time it was cheaper to get Allison's in Mack's than most other makes. The M-Drive is coming for Granite's.

If you think they won't handle off road, you should check out the 700 h.p. Volvo loggers over seas.
