Working in dirt with heavy machinery every day might make you think we are just tough guys with no time for sappy stuff. But we have a lot to feel grateful for and we’re not ashamed to share it. This year, especially for Thanksgiving, we put together a list of gratitudes to show our soft side.
(Ok, and to show off some cool projects from the last year!)
We are thankful for big machines.
We have a lot in common with the little kids at the table who don’t really understand what it means to be thankful, but they really like construction equipment. So when it’s their turn to share what they are thankful for, they say “Trucks!” or “Tractors!” We never really grew out of that stage.
We get to “play” on REAL construction equipment every day. We’re livin’ life in an Ertl catalog and our inner preschool kid couldn’t be happier.
L to R: Clearing the way for a livestock building with laser leveling equipment; Reshaping a waterway; Building a feed bunker
We are thankful for our careers.
Not only do we get to play with our big toys every day, it’s our actual job. We are grateful for the opportunity to support our families doing what we love.

We are thankful for our customers.
Without you, grading and excavating would just be a VERY expensive hobby. Thank you for trusting us with your important projects. We love to be a part of building a family home, improving farmland, and digging ponds. We’re helping people build their dreams. It’s so humbling to be in our community and see a part we have played in building it.
We are thankful for our community.
We take great pride in helping out with public works projects. We know the work we do helps our citizens enjoy a safer, more convenient, and more accessible city. We live with our families in these local communities too, so we are invested in keeping them at their best.
