New guy from Ohio

Hey everyone, my name is Tony and I have grown up with Mack trucks my entire life. In fact I learned to drive in an 82 R686 tandem dump truck with a duplex transmission when I was 14 years old. I worked at my family construction company and we had all Macks but one truck.

I am a heavy equipment operator by trade and I am thinking of starting my own excavating company. My plans are to buy a Titan because I think they are the nicest looking trucks on the road and I plan on getting a Talbert or Etnyer lowboy trailer to move my equipment with. I want to start out with the Titan/lowboy combo with a 314 or 308 Cat excavator and a D4 or 5 dozer and gradually move up as i grown although I do not plan on getting really big but I'd like to have two or three trucks, two Mack Granite Dumps and the Titan lowboy.

Anyhow I thought I would introduce myself on here and I'm excited to be on here. I am a member on a Cummins forum as well as my other love is Ram/Cummins pickup trucks as my personal truck is a 2013 Ram 3500 CTD.

Oh and my username/handle was given to me by my uncle..sort of. We had a roll- off company and my uncle thought it would be a good idea to write "The tough guys of trash removal" on the back of the cab and every time I drove one of the trucks everyone would call me tough guy there for the name stuck.

Oh wow what a small world. I actually live off applegrove close to middle branch so I'm pretty much in North Canton

You are close to Freightrain. He lives off Cleveland Ave. just north of Mt. Pleasant.

Welcome tuffguy. Ya, I'm just 3 blocks north of Kames. You might see my B model running around town pulling my race trailer.

I used to live over off Aspen and Middlebranch years back. That swiss style housing allotment on the east side.

Welcome aboard. Now the straight talk. Unless you have a boat load of money I can't see how you will make it if you buy

all of this equipment new such as a Titan. You can get used equipment in good shape for 1/4 to 1/2 the price. Ease on in to it and

get the business profitable. There is a lot of competition out there with older equipment(less overhead). Good luck!
